The National Basketball Association (NBA) announced that Nigerian superstars Burna Boy, Tems and Rema will headline the 2023 NBA All-Star Game halftime show on February 19 with an Afrobeats-inspired performance.

The NBA made the announcement on its official Twitter page on Wednesday, February 15, which set off a chain reaction.

Burna Boy – despite missing out on two Grammy nominations that year – set a record in 2021 when he became the first Afrobeat singer to win the global award.
