Burna Boy Paid Tribute to Sidhu Moose Wala at Sold-Out Concert at Toronto's Scotiabank Arena

The Nigerian singer held a moment of silence for the late Punjabi artist, who made his mark in Brampton, Ontario, during the second of two shows at Scotiabank Arena.

Burna Boy paused his show for a moment of silence at Toronto's Scotiabank Arena on Sunday night (Feb. 25) in tribute to Sidhu Moose Wala.

In between performing hits like "It's Plenty" and "Last Last" to a rapturous, sold-out crowd for the second night at the arena, the Nigerian musician and Afrobeats star took a pause. The sombre moment was in tribute to Burna Boy collaborator Sidhu Moose Wala, the influential Punjabi artist who was murdered in 2022.
