Let’s be clear, I wasn’t late, my band wasn’t late Burna Boy insist

Popular Nigerian and award wining music artist Damini Ogulu also known as Burna Boy has insisted that he did not arrive late for his show as reported.

Recall that some videos went viral on social media where fans were angry at the artist for coming to his own event at 3am when the show was timed at 7pm.


According to the Grammy award-winner in a statement, he mounted the stage late because the organization of the show was not good enough. But he couldn’t turn his back on his own people was the reason why he asked the show to go on.

He explain, there is no way he could have gone across the world performing on first-class stages and entertaining numerous people and abandoned his own people back at home.

“Let’s be clear, I wasn’t late, my band wasn’t late. We pride ourselves on being highly professional, especially with our stagecraft. There were three options available to me: wait for the audio to be fixed and delay the show,” he said.

Burna Boy added that he has not come out at 11 pm as planned with no sound or call of breach of contract, and pulled the plug.

“Lagos, I love you but l can’t do this again. The organizational structure and infrastructure are not there for the complexities of my audio and production needs.”
