Best After Fela: Nigerians Berates Burna Boy On Twitter For Refusing To Protest

Nigerians to Burna Boy: To Be Fela Is Not By Mouth Alone

Burna Boy has been criticized by Nigerians on social media for rejecting a request to join the RevolutionNow protest.

Former presidential candidate, Omoyele Sowore had invited Burna to join the protest owing to his comparison with Fela Anikulapo Kuti. However, Burna Boy turned down the offer, stating that Nigerian politicians cannot be trusted.

His comments stirred reactions and backlash from Nigerians on Twitter. Some Nigerians called out the ‘African giant’ for making songs about bad governance but refused to join the protest.

Here are some of their comments gathered by NAIJALOADED from Twitter:

“ Sowore called on Burna, Burna replied, “I’m not Fela, leave me out of your schemes. Does that mean Burna is only using Fela ‘bodies of work’ for financial gains only?

“Sowore equally called on Don Jazzy & Rude Boy. Did they answer his clarion call? Why are Nigerian celebs so jittery?
