Burna Boy, a Grammy winner, has apologized to fans for his late performance at a Lagos show which saw many people complaining.
Burna Boy was supposed to perform at a show on Sunday night, but he didn’t show up until 4 a.m as the tired and waiting crowd continue to agitate for the show to begin.
Burna Boy took to Instagram to criticize the show’s organizers for doing a poor job, and then promised to build a world-class infrastructure for the Nigerian entertainment business.
He said “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 a 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.
“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.”
