Boston Declares Burna Boy Day as March 2


The City of Boston has declared March 2nd as its Burna Boy Day, shooting it off officially with Saturday, March 2nd, 2024.

This proclamation, announced by Councilor Ruthzee Louijeune in a press release, underscores the city’s recognition of Burna Boy’s profound impact on advancing African culture and ideals through his music.

In the press release, the city lauded Burna Boy’s multifaceted contributions, not only in the realm of music but also in advocacy. His work has sparked crucial conversations about social justice, representation, and equality, resonating far beyond the boundaries of his artistic craft.

Boston’s acknowledgement extends beyond Burna Boy individually, embracing the rich tapestry of Nigerian influence within the city and the broader United States. This declaration solidifies Burna Boy’s place alongside fellow Nigerian musicians Wizkid and Davido, who have also been honoured with their own official days in the United States.

March 2nd serves not just as a commemoration of Burna Boy’s achievements but as a testament to the power of music and culture to bridge divides, inspire change, and unite communities. In Boston and beyond, Burna Boy’s legacy transcends borders, resonating with audiences worldwide and leaving an indelible mark on the cultural landscape.
