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.
You see what I told you about this fake Jamaican wannabe Burna Boy. The hype is getting into his head, instead of going to Coachella to prove himself he is ranting about font size. Wizkid fought for African artists to be given award on stage your MCM is fighting over font ode 😂 pic.twitter.com/VLKHYrbEDP

You people hyped Burna Boy so much throughout December. See how he's now behaving in January.
Plis dear, African giant not global giant.
Manage the small print and your ego and perform excellently.
