Burna Boy, a Grammy-winning Nigerian artist, has taken over Accra’s Makola billboard in a heartfelt tribute to the vivacious Makola Market women.
This touching act was inspired by a TikTok video performed by Official Starter, a Ghanaian dancer known for his “Happy Town Project.”
Official Starter worked with the vivacious market women to develop joyous dances to popular music. Their most recent creation included the women passionately dancing to Burna Boy’s ‘City Boys.’ The video instantly went viral, showcasing their contagious love of music and movement.
Burna Boy was moved by their spirit and wanted to express his gratitude by adorning the Makola billboard with their photographs. This act of acknowledgment honored the women’s passion of music and dance while emphasizing music’s ability to bring people together.
Burna Boy has been praised on social media for honouring these unsung heroes, demonstrating the great impact artists can have on their fans and communities.
