In the early hours of Monday, fun seekers who attended a Burna Boy concert expressed their displeasure at the singer as they waited for hours before the singer mounted the stage to perform.
It was gathered that some attendees had been at the venue of the concert since 9 pm on Sunday but the Grammy-award-winning singer did not show up on stage till 3:30 am on Monday.
The unapologetic Last Last singer got on stage without remorse an action that irked the crowd who began to boo the singer. In some videos which are circulating around digital spaces, some of the attendees were seen using curse words at the singer.
However, the singer gave a brief explanation that the organisers of the event were at fault as some things were not properly put in place. He further told the audience that they should be grateful he showed up to perform. Burna Boy stated that for years rumours have been flying about him.
The singer stated that some people alleged that he shot someone at a Lagos club last year, while some others claimed that his mother was a dancer for the late afrobeat legend, Fela Anikulapo Kuti but due to his love for his fans he showed up to perform.
He further said, in pidgin, ‘If una no love me, God punish you.’
Burna Boy further seized the opportunity to advise Nigerians to elect the right people into office in the forthcoming elections next month.
Some tweeps have taken to their social media account to air their opinions.
For instance, the user of the account @Vibes_doctor tweeted, “Imagine what Burna Boy had to say. Zero apologies. He really thinks the concert was a favour to Nigerians.”
However, it was learnt that once the singer began his performance, the tension was doused and the revellers had a fun time at the concert.
Commenting on the incident, the Twitter user @1ucheebuka noted that the mood changed when Burna Boy began to perform. “The mood changed inadvertently when the African giant performed Bank on it. Burna Boy made a prayer with Bank on it and to be honest it resonated with my soul, it gave me hope for the new year,” the Twitter user said.
