Burna Boy Dies And Resurrects At Lagos Gulder Show!


The hit maker was brought in dead on 6th September 2014 for his performance at the Gulder Event, which held at the Ocean View Grounds of Eko Hotel.

The scripted performance was coordinated by Micheal  Igbelabo of DNMT (Dance Na The Main Thing) who used 18 choreographers for the rare and bold set.

The stage performance of his hit single yawa dey, began with Burna Boy on the bare ground being revived from a supposed coma. This made the guests go wild in anticipation, as they had absolutely no idea what was coming next or even the fact that it was the singer on the floor.

Few seconds later, Burna springs up, delivering his most energetic and exhilarating performance ever. Absolutely well choreographed, his back up dancers displayed amusing ‘Shoki’ moves to the amazement of everyone present.

The Dancers delighted the audience with a perfect demonstration of the chaos surrounding the missing cube, they also had placards with the inscription ‘where is the cube’ written on it.

No better song described the dangers ahead if the ultimate men had failed to retrieve the missing cube than ‘Yawa Dey’.

Burna should definitely try some acting sometime, he has got some skills!
