Burna Boy made his latest late-night appearance on Trevor Noah’s The Daily Show last night to discuss his latest album African Giant.

During the interview, Burna Boy discussed his African Giant’ album and performed a medley featuring “Ye” and “Anybody” on ‘The Daily Show With Trevor Noah’

The artist appeared noticeably excited as he sat down for an interview with the host to discuss his success, being one of the biggest artists from the continent, appearing on Beyoncé’s Lion King: The Gift album, why he describes his music as “afro-fusion,” and the famous Coachella font incident that inspired the name of his album.

The artist shares that he learned the news while sitting on the toilet and felt he had to say something about how his name appeared on the bill in order to represent for African artists. “I expressed myself, because everyone coming after me shouldn’t have to go through that,” he said. “It’s only right,” he added. To which Trevor responds: “I’m not going to lie, I feel like that was the Nigerian in you kicking in,” before going into his best Naija accent impression.

Earlier in the interview he tells a funny anecdote about how he first came across Trevor Noah while on a boat ride in South Africa.

After the interview, the artist hit the stage to perform a medley of his hit singles “Ye” and “Anybody.”
