Nigerian Afrobeat sensation Burna Boy, is facing criticism from fans for his long and loud silence during the recent election tribunal proceedings.
Burna Boy’s music has been vocal and expressive of Nigeria’s economic plight. His songs have become anthems for all people, resonating with many Nigerians who are dissatisfied with the current state of affairs. However, his seeming absence at a critical juncture in Nigerian politics has left some supporters disappointed.
The electoral tribunal, which was the center of national attention yesterday, made numerous headlines throughout the day.
Burna Boy’s earlier songs have spoken out loudly on the country’s injustices, therefore his silence during this moment has surprised many.
Fans and followers of the artist took to social media platforms to express their disappointment and frustration. They criticized Burna Boy for leveraging the situation of things in Nigeria to promote his music.
Some even went as far as labeling him a “user” who exploits Nigerians for his album sales but fails to engage when real change is on the line.
