Coachella: Twitter Users Come For Burna Boy, After Calling Himself “African Giant” And Asks For A Bigger Font

Nigerians on Twitter have advised singer, Damini Ogulu, popularly called Burna Boy, not to believe the hype surrounding him too much. This was in reaction to a slide off his insta stories, where he slammed the organisers of US music festival, Coachella, for writing his name on the artiste line-up in small print. He told them that he was an “African Giant” and went on to advise them to make necessary changes.  Burna Boy was on Thursday announced as one half of the pair of Nigerian artistes, that would be performing at this year’s Coachella in the US. Tosin Ajibade, popularly called Mr Eazi will also be performing at the music festival. While he had shared his excitement about the Coachella performance on his Twitter page earlier on Thursday, his bashing of the organisers got him trending. Even as most Twitter users felt that he was letting his past successes get to his head, there are others, who felt, he had a right to demand the kind of treatment he deserved.

Other twitter users had a different opinion: Burna Boy deserves better treatment:

The Question is, is Burna boy making a valid argument; just last year wizkid fought for African Artist to be presented awards on stage and not backstage, Ibelieve Burna boy is a stand for a just cause. Photo Credit: Getty
