Nigerian Grammy award-winning singer, Damini Ebunoluwa Ogulu, popularly known as Burna Boy, has apologised to his fans for coming late for his Lagos concert.
Wakadaily reported that the music star was scheduled to perform at his concert in Lagos on Sunday night, the show started at 9pm and Burna Boy didn’t show up on stage till about 3:30am, instead of apologing for the lateness, Burna lashed out at his fans, adding that he only decided to attend the concert out of goodwill and that he would have gone home if not for pleas from Seyi Vibez.
However, in a statement on Monday night through his official Instagram account, the ‘Last Last’ crooner said he wasn’t late for his concert, adding that organisational structure and infrastructure were responsible for the delay.
According to him, “Lagos, I love you but I can’t do this again. The organisational structure and infrastructure are 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 stagecraft.
“There were three options available to me; wait for the audio to be fixed and delay the show, come out at 11 pm 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.
Burna Boy added that “Investors and stakeholders interested please 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 see you all again, on spaceship time! No one else’s. Love, Damini,” he wrote.
