Nigerian Afro-fusion singer and songwriter, Burna Boy, who was on ‘The Daily Show’, hosted by South African comedian, actor, televison host, writer and political commentator, Trevor Noah explained how he felt to Trevor when he couldn’t find his name on the Coachella poster.
Burna said he was literally searching for his name on the Coachella poster but couldn’t find it and he started wondering if he was really supposed to perform at the show.
After a futile effort searching, he said someone helped him find his name and had to circle it for him with a pen because the name was typed in small fonts.
He revealed he was disappointed that his name wasn’t printed boldly like that of other artists who had their names printed boldly on the poster.
“Basically, that has never happened to me before. I’m used to being the African giant,” he said.
Trevor admitted that something people don’t understand is how big Burna Boy is. “You’re huge. You’re huge in a country with one of the largest populations on a continent with one of the largest populations all around the world and then they put you in a very small place,” he said (talking about the coachella poster).
