By FYI Staff

Derik John Baker returned to hometown Toronto last week with his band Virginia To Vegas, performing at the iHeartRadio Jingle (Bell) Ball at the ACC on Dec. 9 where he was bushwhacked by the Wax Records team armed with a trio of big shiny awards.


A platinum award for “We Are Stars,” f. Alyssa Reid, and two gold certifications marking the success of “Lights Out” and “Selfish" were presented. VTV’s latest, “Emotions,” is off to a solid start too, Wax Records’ Andrea Guernsey assures.

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.
