Boston declares March 2 Burna Boy day


The city of Boston, located in Massachusetts, United States, has taken a significant step towards celebrating cultural diversity by officially declaring March 2nd as “Burna Boy’s Day” in honor of the acclaimed Nigerian singer.

The declaration was formalized through a document issued by the Boston City Council and signed by Councillor Ruthzee Louijeune. This document highlights Burna Boy’s remarkable contributions to music, culture, and advocacy.

According to the official document, Burna Boy is being recognized for his outstanding performances and his commitment to advocacy work, which has resonated not only in Nigeria but also on the global stage.

The proclamation underscores Boston’s dedication to celebrating its diverse cultural landscape through various events, festivals, and community initiatives. Burna Boy’s legacy is celebrated for its embodiment of possibility and for amplifying voices that have historically been marginalized or ignored.

The text of the proclamation reads, “Whereas, Burna Boy’s legacy serves as a reminder of possibility, reminding us to continue amplifying voices that have long been silenced or overlooked, now, therefore be it resolved: That March 2, 2024, is designated Burna Boy Day in the City of Boston.”

Burna Boy’s impact on Boston’s cultural scene is unmistakable, with numerous sold-out shows in the city since his breakthrough into the international music scene in 2018.

This declaration not only celebrates Burna Boy’s musical achievements but also acknowledges the broader significance of his work in promoting diversity, inclusion, and social justice.
