Nigerian Afro-fusion singer and writer, Damini Ogulu popularly known as Burna Boy has announced his exit from all platforms of social media permanently.
‘On The Low’ singer shared the news on Wednesday via his Instagram page @burnaboygram, explaining that his page will only share information on music and upcoming shows henceforth.
According to him, “I am leaving all social media platforms permanently. They are now strictly for my show dates and new music. My social media will now be in the full control of my management. Love and positivity to all.”
Although no reason was given for this exit, it comes after fans called the singer out for using his handles to shade other artistes over music deals and streaming.
Gbona singer has, on several occasions, used his social media handles to air controversial statements on trending issues.
In January, he accused Coachella of disrespecting him by writing his name in a small font on the Festival’s poster. He insisted on a change and called himself an ‘African Giant’.
Fans promptly called on him to apply caution and make good use of the global stage. Burna boy eventually performed at Coachella in April and began the ‘African Giant’ tour.
The singer remained relatively peaceful on social media until May when he expressed sadness over the excitement of Nigerian artists when they sign foreign deals.
He said, “You guys don’t know what you’re doing. I will forever be grateful to my manager/mother for making sure I will never be an “international” VICTIM.”
Fans were angry at the statement because it came in the wake of Tiwa Savage’s new deal with Universal Music Group. His stance was also described as hypocritical as Burna Boy, once had a foreign music deal.
