Nigerian musician, Burna Boy awed by the performance of the Makola Market women to his song ‘City Boys’, has put up a billboard at Makola in Accra, as a gesture of appreciation for their participation in the challenge.

In the viral video, the excited women joined the ‘City Boy’ challenge by the Nigerian singer. The video was first shared by popular Ghanaian dancer, Official Starter, who is also widely known for his viral videos with the market women dancers.
The video quickly went viral after it caught the attention of Burna Boy, who reposted the video on his Instagram story for his 15 million followers across the globe to catch up with the challenge entry from Accra.
Touched by their spirit, Burna Boy decided to show appreciation by adorning the Makola billboard with their images.
