The Nigerian singer-songwriter closed the award show with an eyegasmic performance, delivering his two latest songs, Last Last and Kilometer, both housed under his forthcoming album, Love, Damini.
Last night at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, the 2022 edition of the Billboard Music Awards was held to celebrate music’s most chart-topping artists. It was a festival of glitz and glamour as top celebrities from different angles of the world were in attendance.
Slated to perform at the Diddy-hosted award show were Travis Scott, Megan Thee Stallion, Luna, Becky G, AleXa, Mary J. Blige, Dan and Shay, Florence and the Machine, Elle King, Miranda Lambert, Latto, Machine Gun Kelly, Maxwell, Ed Sheeran, Silk Sonic, Morgan Wallen, and of course, Burna Boy.
Out of the bundle of amazing highlights from the award show, including Olivia Rodrigo leading the night with 7 awards, Drake adding 5 more awards to his highly decorated BBMAs collection, Kanye West leading the gospel category claiming a total of 6 awards, Burna Boy’s stellar closing performance is definitely not an exception. His performance brought delight to the audience as he delivers two of his latest singles, Last Last and Kilometer.
His performance at the Billboard Music Award set a new African record for the Nigerian singer. He became the first African artist to perform at the Grammys, BRIT Awards, BET Hip Hop Awards, and the BBMAs.

Up next, Burna Boy will be rolling out his upcoming album, Love, Damini. Scheduled for July 2nd which also doubles as his birthday, the album will consist of 19 songs, including the previously released Last Last and Kilometer.
Love, Damini will serve as Burna Boy’s sixth studio album, a follow-up to the Grammy-winning ‘Twice As Tall‘ LP released just about two years ago, which earned his highest placement on the Billboard 200 chart, debuting at No. 54 on the list.
