Grammy award-winning singer, Damini Ogulu professionally known as Burna Boy has released an apology many of his fans have tagged ‘half-baked’.
Recall that the singer’s concert which took place on Sunday night, January 1st in Lagos was held around 3a.m, rather than 6pm.
Hours ago, in a post on his Instagram story, Burna Boy apologised to his Lagos fans for the disappointment. He vowed that he wouldn’t perform in Lagos again despite his love for his fans.
Giving reasons, Burna stated that the type of organisational structure and infrastructure he needs, isn’t available.
However, he is planning to build a world class infrastructure and is opened to working with investors and stakeholders to bring his vision to life. His statement reads:
I love you but I can’t do this again. The organisational structure and infrastructure is not there for the complexities of my audio and Production needs.
Let’s be clear. I wasn’t late, my band wasn’t late. We pride ourselves on being highly professional especially with out stage craft. There were three options available to me; wait for audio to be fixed and delay the show, come out at 11pm as planned with no sound or call breach of contract and pull the plug.
I know I can’t go all over the world and neglect my own people so I’m taking matters into my own hands! I’m gathering the troops to work on building world class infrastructure in the Nigerian entertainment business.
Investors and stakeholders, interested pls hit me up, we need to make some changes.
I apologize to my fans for how hectic it was, thank you for staying and watching the storm with me.
I commend my band for making lemonade with the worst lemons we’ve ever seen.
Wonder X, KC Kennedy Olisa Adibua and Creative Economy Catalyst (CEC) did an abysmal job of executing anything and my fans should never have had to go through that.
I’ll see you all again, on spaceship time! No one else’s.
In reaction to his apology, many of his fans claim it was half-baked and he should have apologized immediately he mounted the stage instead of insulting his fans. See reactions below:
