An ecstatic Twitter user @Abbye_ak predicts that Burna Boy will shut down the 20,000 capacity arena.
He tweeted, “After Burna Boy shut down Wembley Arena, he praised himself in Level up and I quote “I remember selling all my tours, I remember feeling Legendary in Wembley Arena. Can’t wait to hear what he’s gonna say about the O2 Arena in his next song after shutting it down.”(sic)
Also, @Oga_chuka, while referencing the singer’s pseudonym African Giant tweeted, “Burna boy to reopen O2Arena.
Giant Way!!!” #BurnaboyO2″
Urging the artiste to take advantage of people’s thirst for entertainment after a year of lockdown, @antigravitylite wrote, “Burna boy will sell the O2 with ease. People are hungry to attend shows. They would buy the ticket at almost any cost. He should maximize this opportunity. Congratulations in advance for joining Wizkid and Davido in selling the O2. Another win for Afrobeat #BurnaBoyO2”
