'Will his performance take people to Heaven?' - Reactions trail report of Burna Boy’s fee, other pricy demands

Burna Boy Burna Boy

Nigerian Grammy Award winner Burna Boy since going international and selling out concerts in the UK and US, among others, seems to be unaffordable now for African show organisers.

This comes as Nation Africa revealed organisers who want Burna Boy will have to pay a performance fee of N221m ($500,000).

Aside from this, the organiser would have to book Burna Boy a private jet which would be vetted by his management team prior to booking.

According to the report, for accommodation, Burna Boy stays at a four- or five-star hotel, which should have reserved a smoking executive suite, among others.

The report added that Burna Boy travels separately from his band, as show organisers would have to book 14 flight tickets in consultation with the singer’s management.

Social media users reacted to this revelation in diverse ways as some angry with the singer while others believed it was appropriate for the singer to be expensive because he is an "African Giant".

See some comments below:
