Burna Boy has finally landed in the UK after his 15-year-ban was lifted recently and the Don Gorgon crooner couldn’t be more excited. The 24-year-old singer shared a video on his Twitter page yesterday night, proving he was really in the UK and putting his haters to shame.
The video, which was originally captured by Cokobar, had the caption: “@Burna Boy is here ! All those that wished us bad! All the negative energy God bless you. God made it happen”

This will be Burna Boy’s first appearance in the UK in five years.
In 2010 the singer was arrested by the police for allegedly being part of a gang and stabbing someone to death. He was tried as a minor and sent to jail. After 11 months, he was released and given two months parole plus community service on the grounds of ‘good behaviour’. But he reportedly disobeyed authorities and travelled back to Nigeria where he signed a record deal with Aristocrat Records. He later travelled back to the UK but was arrested at the airport, deported to Nigeria and barred from the UK for 15 years.
Now, the singer is being treated like the prodigal son and even Heathrow airport welcomed him yesterday before he touched down, tweeting :@burnaboy , we can’t wait to have you here at Heathrow. We’ll be ready for a dance battle! pic.twitter.com/oQltRJ94Rr
Burna Boy shared his gratitude to his fans and everyone showing him love.
