Burna Boy also fulfilled a dream to gift Arsenal legend Thierry Henry a Diamond chain.
The UEFA Champions League final football match was played at the Ataturk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul, Turkey.
Burna Boy took off his “Gambo” diamond necklace and put it around Henry’s neck saying that the name “Gambo” inscribed on the necklace referred to his late closest friend, Gambo.
“You see the person on this is my best friend. I lost my best friend and knowing that you are wearing this thing right now is the most special thing in the world that I could have ever done. His name is Gabriel Serenkuma aka Gambo.” He said.
Fans truly have been waiting to see his performance especially after UEFA on their website on March 16 informed that Burna Boy would be their star for the night.
It is widely reported that he earned 2 million dollars for the brief moment. Burna Boy is truly winning. On Friday, June 9, the day before the UCL performance, he received four nominations in the 2023 edition of the Black Entertainment Television, BET, Awards.
