Nigerian singer and Grammy winner Burna Boy has been trending on social media for days over the alleged shooting of two people at Club Cubana in Victoria Island, Lagos State.

In as much as fans love their music stars for giving them great songs to vibe to every time, these superstars also get themselves in some sandals.

Some Nigerian artists have been dragged online after their encounters with people they relate with on the streets.

In this article, we take a look at some Nigerian music stars who have been accused of assaulting various people in recent times.

1. Timaya

Nigerian singer Timaya got himself into trouble during the fuel scarcity period earlier in the year.

A young lady accused Timaya of hit and run after the singer allegedly hit her car but didn't wait to settle things and chose to drive off instead.

The scenario landed the woman in hospital with the dancehall singer releasing a statement about the incident.


Music superstar, Davido also sparked reactions during his much talked about 29th birthday party in Dubai as the event allegedly turned bloody following an outburst at a club.

The DMW boss allegedly signaled his dissatisfaction at a regular club-goer who was recording him with his phone.

When he continued, the singer's gang swung into action by attempting to seize the device which resulted in a fight at the club, the incident got fans divided online as some stood with the singer, and others lampooned him.

Wande Coal got into the spotlight after an online activist, Folarin called him out for assaulting his brother.

Folarin said Wande Coal and his gang beat his brother making the young man cry like a baby with a swollen face and black eye.

The activist further vowed that the singer will definitely pay for what he did, and fans condemned his actions.

4.Burna Boy

Burna Boy and his entourage were called out for shooting at fun-seekers in a club.

The problem started when the Grammy-award winner allegedly made advances at a married woman in a Lagos club and things got messy when his entourage shoot at people.

The shooting incident left two people hospitalised and Burna Boy was heavily criticised.

The police have since commenced a probe into the incident and have invited the singer for interrogation.
