He is heavily involved in monitoring the progress of the construction of Nakivubo stadium ahead of AFCON2027.

This is the stadium where Burna Boy will perform at the grand opening in 2024. According to Booking Entertainment, the musician charges $700,000 for every international show as of 2023.

The news has not gone down well with citizens who are protesting that local musicians should be given priority.

The wealthy businessman has also shared the vision Uganda has for the outcome of the constructed stadium. It is a very impressive structure rivaling no other. When he unveiled it, he shared his pride about the project.

"I personally don't look at this as merely a sports project but rather a legacy and a realistic illustration to my fellow Ugandans that if I can do it so you can .....together we can locally develop Uganda as Ugandans within parameters of reason and reality........for God and my Country."

Burna is currently on the ITOLDYOUTOUR, promoting the album worldwide and is breaking all sorts of music records and rocking the airwaves with his megabuster City Boys.

The tune has legions of fans dancing to the challenge on TikTok.
