Burna Boy, a Nigerian dancehall and afrobeats singer, is said to have made over N3 billion after his sold-out show at Madison Square Garden in New York, USA.
According to BusinessDay, he made the money from ticket sales that ranged from $80 to $2,125, with an average price of $350.
So, using the official exchange rate of N415.33, the total cash earned is $7,276,150, based on average sales of N145,365.50 ($350) multiplied by entire available capacity for a 20,789 arena (N3,022,003,379.50).
Burna Boy was the first Nigerian to perform in Madison Square Garden’s ‘One Night in Space’ performance, which lasted two hours.
Late pop stars Michael Jackson and Elvis Presley, Mariah Carey, Adele, Rihanna, Jay Z, and Justin Bieber are among the artists who have sold out the world’s most famous venue.
