Though he could have been anywhere in the world, Nigerian superstar Damini Ebunoluwa Ogulu (we know him as Burna Boy) chose to celebrate his 32nd birthday on the island he fell in love with back in December: Jamaica.

The days-long birthday getaway included an appearance at Weddy Weddy Wednesday, the shooting of a music video, and a private celebration at Pearly Beach on Friday, July 14.

The Friday night fête saw dancehall's best hitting the stage to help the African Giant celebrate. A highlight of the event was Burna Boy and friends taking to the stage to vibe to the African artiste's songs.
