Speaking as a lifelong football enthusiast, I can say without a doubt that the UEFA Champions League is the pinnacle of the sport. This is why I can’t wait to take the Pepsi stage at this year’s final,” Burna Boy remarked on the UEFA website.
You know I’ll be in Istanbul to bring the vibes and work my musical magic because music and football are the best of friends. You guys aren’t ready for what we have planned.
