Burna Boy made the announcement on his instagram account that he will be leaving social media for good. He continued to reveal that his accounts will now be in full control of his management strictly for show dates and new music.
The announcement came few days after he was attacked by some social media users for the manner he appears to be shading other artists in his posts.
He tweeted that high streaming numbers does not mean that your are talented, and some social media users concluded that the tweet is aimed at DMW singer Mayorkun.
A popular Twitter user reacted:
“Burna Boy is overrated”
“Burna Boy needs to blow”
This was y’all in 2018.
First he pisses on you all. Calls you “backward unprogressive fools”.
Then disrespects Tiwa
And now Mayorkun.
Man is clearly messed up.
You people hyped a wallgecko he started to think he’s a crocodile.
In response, the singer shared the below series of tweets.
Lol. Nice comedy. But really If I wanted to call out someone. It won’t be on twitter or Instagram, I’m more of the real life type. I State Facts, I don’t expect people like you to understand cuZ I do not speak unless it’s the TRUTH and I know ur not used to that so I get it.
FYI Hype is NOT what got me here neither is is what will keep me here. Same ppl that hail you will tear you down so it never mAttered to me. I just do what’s true to me that’s all. “Overrate or Underrate” doesn’t change shit! Truth needs no validation from ignorance.
BTW anyone that thinks I just “Blew” last year. NewsFlash – I been HOT since 2012 NON STOP! Doing it ALL. Touring, getting Money, TREND setting, Big Billboards for ur favourite brands, Feeding as many as I can on the streets and ALL. E.T.C. – AFRICAN GIANT no be mouth.
