Grammy winner, Burna Boy has come under a barrage of attack from Nigerians for saying he does not make money from Nigeria.
Burna Boy irked his fans when he took to Twitter to say that he is not a Nigerian artist and does not make money from here and he uses Nigeria just for the cruise. This comment did not sit well with his fans as they slid under the post and lambasted him.
I’m from here and I live here because I love my home and my people, E no pass like that. I don’t make money from Nigeria. Na only cruise dey here.
@Enacruzly “You are indirectly saying, we the fans in Nigeria streaming your music are not adding anything to your growth.”
@Bright_r “Burna Boy says he’s not a Nigerian artiste but can’t make a hit song without stealing lines from Fela music. The irony. Someone should remind him that 60% of his biggest songs came from Fela.”
@ DavidRegha “Burna Boy you are still a Nigerian artiste, winning a Grammy and having collaborations with foreign artistes won’t change that; Nigerians are the reason you are thriving in the music industry so stop feeling pompous. This attitude is the reason a lot of people dislike your personality.”
@Iamcandychief “Does that mean the person that said your success is tied to Atlantic is right? If you don’t make money from Nigeria, so why the Naija concerts? If you don’t make money from Nigeria so why are you using Afrobeats to make money?
@DekingKudos “If that’s the case, I think you should just make your next album unavailable for your Nigerian audience and let’s see how far you will go.”
@Greatkd2 “Na only Burna Nigeria fans I pity Sha
All your efforts wey you dey use stream that zoo album Burna still say he no dey make money from Nigeria.”
@Carbon3_0 “Sigh but I dey stream your music with money.”
@Innovativenig “You changed your dealer? You shouldn’t be caught tweeting this man! A lot of us including myself pre-ordered your albums. So how about your endorsements chief?
