He attended the symbolic market closing ceremony,  in the company of his mother and manager, Bose Ogulu, and his sister, Ronami Ogulu.

Burna also had a media chat with CNBC Africa, which was broadcast live in forty-eight countries, as well as Channels Television. He met with investment advisers, fans at NSE, brokers and more during the ceremony.

As the race ambassador for the 2016 NSE Corporate Challenge, Burna will also join in the fun-filled 5-kilometre walk, run and jog competition designed to raise awareness and funds for the purchase of 37 Mobile Cancer Centers (MCCs). The challenge, tagged “eRace Cancer”, will be held on Saturday, May 14, 2016, at the Muri-Okunola Park, Adeyemo Alakija Street, Victoria Island, Lagos state.

Burna Boy has been working non-stop since the release of his sophomore album #OAS (On A Spaceship) last November, releasing videos and gaining acclaim in different African cities. Earlier in the year, he won the One Africa Award and two more at the Metro FM Awards in South Africa. Only last weekend, he lit up the Lagos NYSC camp with a string of sensational performances.
