However, following mixed reactions from fans, some of who berated him for being ungrateful and full of himself, Burna Boy deleted the story.

Consequently, the singer came out to defend himself in another story. “I represent a whole generation of SOLID AFRICAN creatives going global. Not the soft low self esteem Africans with slave mentality,” he posted.

Burna Boy however stated he will soon grant an interview to make himself understood, stating that nothing he said came from any “place of pride or self-entitlement, it comes from my vision of the future of AFRICA not just AFRICAN music.”
