Burna Boy wins EMA

The 2019 MTV EMAs awards held Sunday night in Seville, Spain saw the African giant, Burna Boy winning yet another big award. He won in the category for the Best African Act. This makes it two international awards the Afrobeat singer would win this year. Recall he won the Best International Act award at the 2019 BET awards. Burna Boy was nominated alongside co-Nigerian singer, Teni, Prince Kaybee (South Africa), TooFan (Togo), Harmonize (Tanzania), and Nasty C (South Africa).

However, Burna Boy was not present to receive the award as he had a concert at SSE Arena in Wimbledon, London. Burna Boy’s award makes it fourth time a Nigerian would win the award consecutively. First, it was Wizkid in 2016, then in 2017, Davido clinched the award and Tiwa followed suit in 2018.

Davido’s elder brother, Adewale Adeleke shows off wedding venue

Singer Davido’s elder brother, Adewale Adeleke showed off the venue of the forthcoming wedding of him and his fiancee Adekani. The entertainment mogul with the Instagram name Chairmanhkn, took to his Instagram handle to show fans the beautiful venue for their wedding. Recall that he had earlier proposed to Adekani this year. This is happening just a few days after the naming ceremony of Davido and Chioma’s child’s dedication which held in London. 

It is such a celebration period in the lives of the Adelekes. First, it was Davido and Chioma’s engagement. Then the birth of their son, Ifeanyi Adeleke. Now, the older Adeleke and his beautiful bride-to-be are set to exchange vows. From his post, the venue of the wedding will be at the famed Emirates Palace, Abu Dhabi, United Arabs Emirates.

The Adelekes always have the right degree of pomp in their events and celebrations. A wedding at the Emirates Palace costs about 120,000 dirhams, that is around 32,000 USD. During Davido’s son’s dedication, the singer donned the expensive Cartier Iced Out Glasses which is sold a whopping $12,000, approximately N4.5 million. A few days ago, the singer posted a picture of an expensive-looking Richard Mille watch and captioned it “it hurt my account but I had to do it..”. Luxury is a legacy for the Adeleke family. So, it was not surprising to see Adewale Adeleke settle for the expensive Emirates Palace for his wedding.

Though the date of the wedding is not known yet, we assume it is very close. Davido had also announced his own wedding to be in 2020. Nigerians surely cannot wait!

Burna Boy promises to donate part of proceeds from South Africa show to Xenophobic attack victims.

Burna Boy has indicated his readiness to perform in South Africa and donate part of the proceeds to victims of the xenophobic attack.

Months after weighing in on xenophobic attacks in South Africa, Burna Boy has confirmed his preparedness to perform in the country.

In a recent tweet, Burna Boy noted that the show, which is tagged Africans Unite, will be the first of many.

The African Giant singer also hinted that he will be donating part of the proceeds from the show to victims of xenophobic attacks in the country.

Part of the proceeds will be donated to the victims of Xenophobic attacks by me!” Burna Boy’s statement said in parts.

On Wednesday, October 23, 2019, a South African online platform reported that Burna Boy will be in South Africa for a concert.

In September, Burna Boy had weighed in on the xenophobic attacks on Nigerians in South Africa vowing not to step in the country again.

The ‘African Giant’ further narrated how he suffered a Xenophobic attack in 2017 and had since refused to return to the Nelson Mandela country.
