Fortnite, the popular online adventure video game, has recently introduced a new emote inspired by Nigerian Afrobeats sensation, Damini Ogulu, better known as Burna Boy. Players can now make their characters perform the renowned Afro-moonwalk, a dance move made famous by the Grammy-winning artist.
Released in 2017, Fortnite offers three unique game modes and has garnered a massive following for its engaging gameplay, which features 100 players battling to become the last person standing. The game is known for integrating pop culture trends and various emotes, which are short, character-driven actions that players can use to express themselves in the virtual world.
In the latest update, Fortnite developers have incorporated Burna Boy’s iconic Afro-Moonwalk as an emote, enabling players to showcase the Michael Jackson-inspired dance. As a heavyweight Nigerian singer, songwriter, and performer, Burna Boy has captivated audiences worldwide with his distinctive style and captivating performances.
This collaboration between Fortnite and Burna Boy is a testament to the cultural impact of the Afrobeats genre and a nod to the global influence of the Nigerian artist. With this new emote, Fortnite players can now channel their inner Burna Boy and celebrate the fusion of music and gaming in a fun and engaging way.
