The ‘African Giant’ star revealed the news on his social media and fans weren’t happy.
As one of the world’s most prominent African music stars, Burna Boy has enjoyed a meteoric rise to the top of the game, with his 2019 album ‘African Giant’ spawning a number of hit tracks.
But Burna Boy shocked fans last night when he claimed that he’s set to go on a musical hiatus until he’s 31 years old.

In a message posted on his social media, Burna Boy wrote, “After the Next Album drops. Imma go on a Hiatus till I’m 31. No Music. No social media. NO videos.”
The ‘Ye’ star went on to say, “I might keep touring tho but that’s it. #TwiceasTall”.
Fans were naturally confused and surprised by Burna Boy’s sudden announcement and took to Twitter to share their feelings.
Burna Boy’s follow up album to 2019’s ‘African Giant’ is believed to be called ‘Twice As Tall’ and the Afrobeats star had announced a 2020 tour under that name before the coronavirus pandemic struck.
As he’s currently 28 years of age, depending on when he releases his next album a hiatus could last for several years.
