Burna Boy, the renowned Afrobeats sensation, has taken a daring step to break free from media attention, expressing his frustration with various news agencies and blogs. In an unexpected move, the artist has proposed a financial arrangement to make them cease reporting on his activities entirely.
Venting his discontent on social media, Burna Boy, using his X handle, addressed media houses and blogs directly. It appears that the artist has grown weary of being in the public eye and is willing to pay a price to regain his privacy. He urged these outlets to convene and collectively decide on the amount of money required to stop featuring news and updates about him.
In his own words, Burna Boy tweeted: “How far. all these instablog, PulseNg e.t.c abeg make all of una do meeting then decide how much I go give all of una make una forget my name totally. I know say I never pay any of una before so I say make I just run am finally. I greet you bros!!”
The tweet sparked a reaction from controversial social media commentator, Daniel Regha, who pointed out the role of Nigerian blogs in Burna Boy’s career. Regha emphasized that while some news might be inaccurate, these blogs have played a significant role in the artist’s success by promoting his achievements and projects. He urged Burna Boy to acknowledge the contributions of these outlets.
In response, Burna Boy delivered a cutting retort, dismissing the commentator’s perspective with the question, “Oga how much be your money?? Make you sef develop amnesia for my matter. You follow for people wey I dey talk about.”
The social media exchange continued as users weighed in on the debate. One user, @naturalboifilmz, highlighted the potential consequence for Burna Boy, stating, “If they stop posting about you, you’ll totally be forgotten, bro.” Another user, @NobleBenz, offered advice, suggesting that the artist focus more on his music and less on the opinions of bloggers.
