Burna Boy Honored Among Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People of 2024


Time Magazine has bestowed the prestigious recognition of being one of the 100 Most Influential People of 2024 upon the African music sensation Burna Boy.

Highlighted in Time Magazine’s esteemed list, Burna Boy, the Grammy Award-winning artist, received a heartfelt tribute from the renowned musician Angelique Kidjo. Notably, he stands as the lone African musician among the select few. Kidjo lauded him as a catalyst for change, revered by countless youths who find inspiration in his journey.

In her tribute, Kidjo reminisced about advising young African musicians a decade ago, urging them to embrace their cultural roots instead of imitating American styles. She emphasized the richness and beauty of traditional African music, asserting its unparalleled potential to captivate global audiences.

Burna Boy has transformed this vision into a worldwide phenomenon. Drawing from the vibrant rhythms of Nigerian folk music and guided by the legacy of Africa’s iconic singer-songwriters, he follows in the footsteps of legends like Fela Kuti—a figure celebrated both for his music and activism. Burna Boy’s distinct style and infectious groove have propelled him to unprecedented heights, marking several milestones in his career. In 2023, he made history by selling out a U.S. stadium, and in 2024, he became the first Afrobeats artist to grace the stage at the Grammys—an achievement of monumental significance.

As Kidjo aptly concludes, Burna Boy’s ascent is not just a personal triumph but a beacon of hope for an entire generation of African youth, who now look up to him as a trailblazer and icon.
