Hmm! One time they called us ‘lazy Nigerian youths’ this time it is ‘backward unprogressive fools’. Nigerians don suffer o.
Burna and Mr Eazi are the only Nigerian singers announced as performers for the 2019 Coachella Music Festival. and they’ll be performing alongside Ariana Grande, Childish Gambino, Wiz Khalifa, Kid Cudi, Solange among others for the 2019 Coachella Music Festival in California.
Burna took to Instagram to call out the organisers for writing his name in a small font, shortly after the announcement, asking them to “fix things quick please”.
The singer who also called Nigerians ”Backward unprogressive fools” because he feels they do not know their rights has since released a statement to clarify his comment stating it is not coming from a place of “pride” or sense of “entitlement” but from his vision for the future of Africa not just African music.
Burna Boy is at it again and this time, the target of his wrath are Nigerians, who he says represent the largest number of ‘unprogressive fools.’
Yesterday was unofficially declared as Burna Boy day on social media following his outburst after he was announced as one of the performers at the upcoming 2019 edition of the Coachella festival.
Burna Boy had an issue with the way his name appeared on the line-up poster, complaining about the size of the character and this generated a lot of reactions all day on Twitter.
Perhaps, taken aback by comments and opinions from a number of his citizens, Burna Boy has taken to his Instagram page to complain about the ‘backward unprogressive’ mind state of Nigerians.
In a now deleted post shared on Friday, January 4, 2018, Burna Boy wrote, ”Don’t worry, I know for a fact that my own country, NIGERIA is home to the largest number of backward Unprogressive FOOLS.
I will still fight for them because they are not mentally advanced enough to fight for themselves. They will Forever have my Genuine undying LOVE.
To the few proud Young AFRICAN Intellectuals who will not conform to whatever bullshit they are given. you are the Only Hope of AFRICA. God bless you all.”
He has also promised to hold a press conference where he will further explain the reasons and justification for his actions.
