Delta State Governor's aide Ossai Success has stated that Burna Boy should apologise for the shooting incident at Club Cubana, Lagos, instead of ‘displaying rudeness’.

The incident which happened on June 8, 2022, caught the public's attention and even prompted the Nigerian Police force to issue a formal statement of an ongoing investigation that is currently taking place in regards to the shooting that resulted in the injuries of two people.

Ossai Success took to his verified Facebook page on Tuesday to note that the singer should publicly apologise for the incident.

He wrote, “Burna Boy should apologize for the shooting at Cubana Night Club publicly. As a public figure, it’s your responsibility to take the blame and apologise whether you are wrong or right.

“Burna Boy keeping silent over what happened at Cubana club shows the pride in him. While investigations are ongoing, he should apologise to us all.

“What happened that night did happen because he was there and the officers attached to him did the shooting, so it’s paramount he tender his apology instead of displaying rudeness.

“Victims are in hospital and yet his pride doesn’t want to allow him to apologise. Burna Boy has no justification for not apologising.”

The victim has also faulted the club and Burna Boy's "lack of remorse or accountability for the incident which almost claimed two lives.

However, renowned disc jockey DJ Obi has expressed his support for Burna Boy in relation to the shooting allegation involving his police escorts

The DJ debunked the statement that Burna Boy had approached the woman at the club and had been rejected three times he made the approach.

"The biggest lie of 2022 is when I heard that BURNA BOY tried to talk to another man’s woman. That was where that whole story lost me. There is no woman born of a woman that has that privilege. And not even once but THREE times?! FAT LIE!" he said.
