When Burna Boy’s 13-track ‘Outside’ album hit the number three spot on Billboard Reggae Album Chart within a week of its release, it became obvious that he was one Nigerian artiste who would top charts in 2018.  In what seemed like a deliberate action aimed at wowing his fans he began shooting the visuals of each song, beginning with his favourite hit, ‘Heaven’s Gate’, featuring Lily Allen.

But a few months later ‘Ye’ turned out to become the one song that would define Burna’s year, as the song immediately floored ‘Heaven’s Gate’ as soon as he dropped its visuals. To put an icing on the cake, he embarked on a ‘Life on the outside’ tour, which eventually put his songs more on international music charts by reason of the massive acceptance and recognition they received.

Afterward, impressive collaborations, features and more hits in ‘Gbona’ and ‘On The Low’ continued to put him more on the front burners of the Nigerian music scene. Take it or not, 2018 was definitely the best of years for the Don Gorgon, as he fondly calls himself.

And the final straw that did it for him, was his larger than life outing at the Soundcity MVP Awards where he carted home four majors awards, making him the best artiste of the night. All this while Star Lager beer and Nigerian Brewery were hatching their plan.

The plan came to fruition on Sunday when they announced the Afrobeat star as their one and only ambassador. Star Lager is one of the biggest brand supporters of music, and its efforts in the Nigerian music industry has seen the brand host events such as Star Quest, Star Music Trek and Star Mega Jam.
