As the Vivint Arena in Salt Lake City, Utah, buzzed with excitement on Sunday, February 19, 2023, the centre stage belonged to one man only — Burna Boy, the Nigerian Afrobeats superstar whose stole the show in one fell swoop as one of the NBA All-Star 2023 game halftime performance headliners!

It was truly a sight to behold as the lights dimmed, the music started, and the crowd erupting into cheers as the crowd-puller, Burna Boy emerged onto the stage, starting his electric performance with the hit single, “Anybody.” Always bringing the energy with him to all his performances, the enthusiastic audience couldn’t help but sing and dance along with the born superstar. 

Without missing a beat, Burna Boy smoothly transitioned into a medley of his most popular songs: street anthem, “It’s Plenty,” followed by “Ye,” “Last Last” — and more. As the final notes of “Last Last” rang out, the crowd who were dazzled beyond words, roared with appreciation, and in that moment, Burna Boy knew he had given them a performance to remember, bringing his signature Afrofusion sounds to Utah and leaving the audience thoroughly entertained.

The halftime performance which was a major highlight of the NBA All-Star 2023 weekend — with fans taking to social media to express their admiration for Burna Boy’s talent and showmanship — once again proves that Burna Boy has pushed the envelope in his journey to global superstardom, at the same time, cementing his position as one of the most sought-after music acts in the world.
