Nigerian singer Burna Boy was in the country this past weekend to perform at an art gig at Uhuru gardens.
Burna boy allegedly walked out of a TV interview after he was asked to apologize to Kenyans regarding his peaant comment last year.
Many had vowed to boycott his show but Kenyans were shocked to learn that the event was sold out despite him refusing to apologize.
State house director of brand strategy Big Tedd called out Burna boy after his Mashujaa day arrogance forcing the singer to send some love to Kenyans moments later.
“I have run concerts in Kenya for many years and one thing I have seen with many of the even so called “divas” is the respect they accord a visiting country..even in the past when the artist would leave the country without payment they would curse the promoter BUT NEVER the citizens… So I gather that @burnaboygram is in town for another collection from “peasants” first of all on MASHUJAA day…brathe listen our djs may play your songs…we may even dance to it see Kenyans are a cool lot we live with many of your brothers and sisters here happily and chop life together..We slide easy but we don’t forget.. And we are also a very very proud people.. We work hard for every peasant cents we pay to see you…but we also party hard… We may be gullible to the lies and stories told to us by politicians but we are NOT STUPID…we demand an APOLOGY from you yes you @burnaboygram before you take to any stage in this peasant country…” wrote Big Tedd
Burna boy did not openly apologize but shared a tweet thanking Kenyans for the huge turn out and another one saying people judge him because they do not know him.
“Just woke up and I still can’t believe how amazing last night was,Just wanted to say a big thank you to everyone involved that made it possible and especially my Kenyan fans.” he wrote
