Burna Boy Apologises for late Performance at Concert

Nigerian Afrobeats sensation Burna Boy has apologised to fans after being criticised for a late performance at a concert that saw him take to the stage in the small hours of Monday.

In a statement on Instagram, the musician blamed organisers for his lateness at the Love Damini Concert held in Lagos.

“The organisational structure and infrastructure are not there for the complexities of my audio and production needs,” the musician said.

Burna Boy added: “I apologise to my fans for how hectic it was, thank you for staying and weathering the storm with me.”

He said he would be working with investors to build world-class infrastructure in the Nigerian entertainment business.

“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 apologise to my fans for how hectic it was, thank you for staying and weathering the storm with me.

“I commend my band @fromtheoutsiders 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’lI see you all again, on spaceship time! No one else’s.

“Love, Damini,” he wrote.

The singers statement was met with mixed amongst his fans with one user commenting, “Still doesn’t explain why he had to insult fans who stayed up for hours waiting for him to show up. He finally showed up and rather than apologize or shame the organizers, he scolded the fans for feeling disappointed. Make it make sense.”

Another one added, “Omo. Nothing amazes me more than the ‘aww, we forgive you’. This apology isn’t even apology. He’s still standing by what he did and insinuating he had the right to. What happened to addressing the crowd while they fixed the issue ooo…omo, we deserve our leaders”

The singer is one of the most successful African musicians in the world.
