In addition to his impressive certifications, Burna Boy’s 2023 album, ‘I Told Them,’ recently exceeded 200 million streams on Spotify. However, he has also made headlines for his recent Twitter outburst, where he offered money to Nigerian bloggers in exchange for not reporting on him. Additionally, the African giant lost the title of Best Afrobeats at the now-canceled MTV EMA Awards. Despite the ups and downs, Burna Boy’s career continues to reach new heights, and ‘Last Last’ attaining Diamond certification in France is another testament to his global impact in the music industry.
