Nigerian singer, Burna Boy has announced that he is leaving social media platforms permanently. In an Instagram post, the singer noted that all of his handles will now be controlled by his management.
The announcement might be linked to his recent altercations with Twitter users after one called him out for his comment on streaming numbers.
Recall that Burna Boy had tweeted that some musicians actually think streaming numbers is equivalent to talent, which led many fans to believe it was a shade thrown at Mayorkun whom recently celebrated 70 million views across all platforms.
One particular Twitter user reacted:
“‘Burna Boy is overrated’
‘Burna Boy needs to blow’
This was y’all in 2018.
First he pisses on you all. Calls you “backward unprogressive fools.
Then disrespects Tiwa.
And now Mayorkun.
Man is clearly messed up.
You people hyped a wallgecko he started to think he’s a crocodile.”
In response, Burna Boy shared the below series of tweets.
Lol. Nice comedy. But really If I wanted to call out someone. It won’t be on twitter or Instagram, I’m more of the real-life type. I State Facts, I don’t expect people like you to understand cuZ I do not speak unless it’s the TRUTH and I know ur not used to that so I get it.
