Stopping over in London on his I Told Them Tour before playing Glastonbury’s Pyramid Stage, Burna Boy lit up a sold-out, 80,000-capacity show at London Stadium on 29 June.

Accompanied by his Outsiders Band, Burna performed an extensive set with euphoric moments from Outside, African Giant, Twice As Tall, Love, Damini, I Told Them… and more, with appearances from guests including Snoh Aalegra, Omah Lay, Shallipopi and Pheelz. After becoming the first African artist to headline a UK stadium (where he was joined by Stormzy, Dave, J Hus and Popcaan) last summer, the artist’s larger-than-life, record-breaking return to the venue felt triumphant.

With photographers Nickie Rose and Shot by Nee capturing the vibes, look back on the night below.
