Grammy Award winning Nigerian musician Damini Ogulu aka Burna Boy, has said he can’t perform in Nigeria anymore until world class infrastructure is put in place for him to perform following his show in Lagos.
The artiste took to his Instagram stories to offer an explanation for the way the show turned out as it saw him condemn concert goers and even kick a fan.
Burna who was said to have kept fans waiting for over 7 hours said he and his band were not late and that the show was actually scheduled for 11pm.
He blamed the organizers for the lack of good sound system which he wasn’t used to across the world. He said he’d had to make the most of what he had.
Burna however said he was working with corporations and other organizations to create a world class sound environment to enable him provide performances on par with his international ones.
He also asked Nigerians who they’d be voting in the forthcoming elections.
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 lipm 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.
