Afro-fusion singer and multi-award winning songwriter, Damini Ogulu aka Burna Boy has announced his exit from all social media platforms.
The “On the low” crooner also made it known that his exit from all the platforms will be permanent.
Burna Boy shared the news on Wednesday, May 15th, via his Instagram page, explaining that his page will only share information on music and upcoming shows henceforth.
He said, “I am leaving all social media platforms permanently. They are now strictly for my show dates and new music. My social media will now be in the full control of my management. Love and positivity to all.”
Although no reason was given for this exit, it comes after fans called the singer out for using his handles to shade other artistes over music deals and streaming.
Recall that the singer has on several occasions used his social media handles to air controversial statements on trending issues.
In January, he accused Coachella of disrespecting him by writing his name in a small font on the Festival’s poster. He insisted on a change and called himself an “African Giant.”
Fans promptly called on him to apply caution and make good use of the global stage.
The singer remained relatively peaceful on social media until May when he expressed sadness over the excitement of Nigerian artists when they sign foreign deals.
Fans were angry at the statement because it came in the wake of Tiwa Savage’s new deal with Universal Music Group. His stance was also described as hypocritical as Burna Boy, once had a foreign music deal.
His most recent debacle involved him slamming his colleagues who boast about their music streaming numbers, arguing that it was not a reflection of talent.
