Burna Boy Earned $12.3m From International Concerts in Two Years


Damini Ogulu, better known as Burna Boy, has amassed an impressive $12.3 million from a series of international concerts spanning two years.

The financial data, sourced from ChartsAfrica on X, a leading authority in touring charts and box score reports, alongside Bloomberg Pollstar’s official ticket tracking, highlights Burna Boy’s dominance in the global music scene.

With 14 out of the 20 highest-grossing concerts by an African artist between 2022 and 2023, Burna Boy’s achievements underscored his widespread appeal and ability to sell out renowned venues worldwide.

Iconic locations such as Paris La Defense Arena in France, Madison Square Garden in the US, Ziggo Dome in the Netherlands, and London’s O2 Arena have contributed significantly to his financial success.

However, it’s crucial to note that reported earnings may not directly translate into personal income for Burna Boy. Various factors, including splits with his team, venue agreements, promoter shares, marketing expenses, and tax obligations, influence the final income received by the artist. Taxes and levies within the international music industry further impact ticket sales revenue, with deductions allocated to the artist, manager, and promoter.

Burna Boy’s financial achievements not only showcased his musical talent and global influence but also shed light on the complex financial landscape within the music industry. This insight underscores the dynamic and competitive nature of artist earnings and the multifaceted considerations involved in their financial success.
