In 2018, Damini Ogulu better known as Burna Boy was given much recognition because of his back-to-back hit tracks he released which tripled his fan base in no time. It also made him one of the artistes to look out for in 2019.
On the 3rd of January, Coachella announced their full line up for the 2019 edition and they actually recognized burna boy & Mr Eazi, Nigerians were proud about this feat because it actually shows Nigerian music is gaining grounds. ‘Coachella is a Valley Music and Arts Festival is an annual music and arts festival held at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California, located in the Inland Empire’s Coachella Valley in the Colorado Desert.‘
After the Lineup was announced, One of the listed performers, Burna boy calls out the organizers because his name was written in small font. Do You think it was called for?
On his instastory which he has deleted after it was viral, He advised Coachella to make his name bolder and more visible because he is an ‘AFRICAN GIANT’. Really? He wrote: ‘I really appreciate you. But I don’t appreciate the way my name is written so small in your bill. I am an AFRICAN GIANT and will not be reduced to whatever that tiny writing means. Fix tings quick please.’
Though, Burna Boy has the right to demand what he wants but hey! he shouldn’t let past successes get into his head as he is just starting to hit the light. Font Size shouldn’t be a pressing issue right now. Burna Boy is sometimes proud and aggressive towards his fans and that was one of the reason he wasn’t being recognized for what he does and now that his music is being recognized he has started bringing back those characters.
Burna Boy is a good afro-fusion singer but He hasn’t gotten to the time to tag himself and AFRICAN GIANT. How Long will he be able to maintain his stardom?
The Question Here; Is Burna Boy an AFRICAN GIANT that He portrays Himself as?
