Burna Boy said “London Stadium is going to be my fairground! I’ve been told that I couldn’t
achieve anything because of where I came from, I hope this can show people that when you have a dream it doesn’t matter where you’ve come from, your dream can come true.
This is going to be legendary, it’s history and I can’t wait for you all to be a part of that.”
