A tweet to have either Burna Boy, Wizkid or Davido to perform at this year’s edition of the UEFA Champions League final is gaining traction, with over 4000 likes and 800 retweets in just an hour.
Europe’s premium club football showdown will take place on the 29th of May and will see Chelsea and Manchester City faceoff in what would be the eight one-nation final and the third all-English final in the history of the competition.
This year’s final is slated to hold in the famous Ataturk Stadium in Istanbul, Turkey. Liverpool came from three-goals down to beat AC Milan there in the 2005 Champions League final. However, there is growing pressure on Europe football’s governing body, UEFA to move this year’s showpiece to England, given it’s an all-English affair and travelling to Turkey is not allowed for now due to COVID-19, meaning that fans will not be able to attend the event unless it is moved to another venue.
One fan wrote: “If UEFA decides that Davido, Burna & Wizkid will perform at Champions League final, Burna Boy should perform first so the audience can feel energized, followed by Wizkid. Davido should give the closing performance so winners can have “A Better Time” celebrating their victory…”
Another one said: “Burna boy has 80% chance tho. @PepsiGlobal make burna boy perform at the Uefa finals.”
UEFA is yet to alter the venue of the occasion and have not revealed the full event flow. Nonetheless, no Nigerian musician has ever performed at the event since the history of the competition. It would certainly be a huge achievement if any of the 3 get called by UEFA, especially Burna, who keeps soaring and soaring.
