    Canadian Senate Hails Burna Boy, Nollywood

    The Canadian Senate has commended ace Afrobeats singer, Damini Ogulu aka Burna Boy and the Nigerian movie industry otherwise known as Nollywood.

    The legislative body of the North American country gave the accolade while appraising the level of the growth and global expansion of Nigerian music and movie industries.

    While speaking about Burna Boy’s exploits in Canada, the Director General West And Central African Bureau Global Affairs Canada, Marcel Lebleu labelled him as a valued touring artiste.

    He lauded the Grammy winner for selling out the iconic, The Bell Centre in Montreal back-to-back.

    Lebleu said: “I don’t know if you know Burna Boy. He is an Afrobeats singer. He was in Montreal three weeks ago, sold out The Bell Centre twice. That’s about 35,000 people.

    “He was also in Toronto. We don’t think about the culture industry a lot but this is an important industry. For example, Nollywood.”

    Also eulogising the ‘Electricity’ crooner, Senator Peter Boehm, Chairman, Senate Committee on Foreign Affairs, admitted, “I was listening to Burna Boy the other night.”

    He went on to confirm that he is a huge Burna Boy fan on his verified X handle after the video went viral.

    Boehm tweeted, “Being tall, I continue to enjoy listening to @burnaboy ‘Twice as Tall’ (2020) on my playlist.”
