Self-acclaimed ‘African Giant’ Burna Boy has lashed out at fans after arriving late to a concert in Lagos.

Born Damini Ebunoluwa Ogulu, the Grammy award-winning singer held a concert on January 1 at the Eko Energy City, Lagos where he put up a display that has set tongues wagging.

Not only did the Afro-fusion singer arrive late, but he also did not immediately make peace with fans.

Burna explained he would have gone home if not for Seyi Vibez, a younger colleague who knelt to beg him not to disappoint the fans who had been waiting hours for him.

He faulted critics who claimed he killed someone at a popular Lagos club and that his mom was one of late Fela Anikulapo Kuti’s dancers.

‘Odogwu’, however, noted despite all of the hurtful things said about him and his family, he still loved his fans, but that God will punish them if they do not also love him.

“Just to show you say I still love una, I no go even lie for you.

“If no be Seyi Vibez sef I for don dey go house but I dey here with una after una don talk say I kill person for Cubana.

“After una don talk say my mama dance for Fela. After una….no wahala.

“I still love you na why I dey here, so if you like no love me, na God go punish you,” he said.

In June 2022, a London-based lady, Briella Neme, stated she was traumatised after aides of Burna Boy shot her partner at the Cubana club in Victoria Island, Lagos.

Recounting her experience, she accused Burna Boy and his security details of ruining her vacation.
