Burna Boy Teams Up With Spotify To Launch ‘Burna Bank’


Global Music streaming platform Spotify recently announced that it had teamed up with Afrobeat sensation Burna Boy to launch ‘Burna Bank’ in New York City.

The announcement was made via Instagram with a caption that read;
Peak #AfricanGiant levels: having your own currency 🔥. Check out #BurnaBoy’s ATM this week in NYC and RSVP to the launch through the link in our bio. #BurnaBank

Burna Bank is inspired by the artwork for his [Burna Boy’s] highly sensational African Giant album. “The installation features a unique ATM which will be dispensing custom, collectible bills designed by Sajjad Musa. Each bill is inspired by Burna’s Nigerian roots, and his quest to call out corruption and the disproportionate distribution of wealth.

The artiste equally spoke about the collaboration via Instagram;
See me see trouble ……..🤷🏾‍♂️


@spotify Burna Bank opens tonight in BK. FYI the notes are valid at select retailers and in my Merch shop on the #AGTRETURNS tour 🦍

‘Burna Bank’ which took the form of an ATM was launched yesterday, August 13, 2019 at 419 Tompkins Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11216 between 6:00pm and 9:00pm and will be on the site till Sunday, August 18, 2019.
