Burna Boy, whose real name is Oluwadamini Ebunluwa Ogulu had earlier announced that he would be opening the year with his Lagos concert.
On the 1st of January, 2023, the proposed concert failed to kick off in time, due to a 7-hour delay by the Grammy-award-winning singer.
Rather than take full responsibility, Burna Boy said ‘sour’ words to his already agitated fans adding that “God will punish those of them who do not love him.” However, things took a different turn last night, after Odogwu tendered an apology to them.
Read Burna’s apology below;
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 our stage craft. There were three options available to me; wait for audio to be fixed and delay the show, come out at izpm 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 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’ll see you all again, on spaceship time! No one else’s.”
