Burna Boy secured great albums and music releases which gave him great acclamation. It includes the sixth studio album ‘Love, Damini’, which debuted at number 14 on the Billboard Top 200. It persisted in ranking high on Apply Music in around 47 nations.

Further, another Nigerian musical star Omah Lay, will also boom the stage of WCF and brim the audience with his afrobeat tunes like ‘Lo Lo’, ‘You’ and ‘Do Not Disturb’.
