Grammy-winning singer, Damini Ogulu, popularly known as Burna Boy, has recently expressed his willingness to compensate Nigerian blogs to cease publishing news about him.
Despite acknowledging that he has not paid any blogs in Nigeria before, the self-proclaimed “African Giant” urged bloggers in the country to determine a fair price and provide it to him so that he can settle them and prevent any further coverage about him.
On his X handle on Friday, Burna Boy wrote, “How far. all these Instablog, PulseNg e.t.c, abeg make all of una do meeting then decide how much I go give all of una make una forget my name totally. I know say I never pay any of una before so I say make I just run am finally. I greet you bros!!”
This announcement stirred up mixed reactions, with some fans warning Burna Boy that he risks being forgotten if bloggers stop featuring news about him.
The strained relationship between Burna Boy and Nigerian bloggers originated from his previous caution against bloggers offering free downloads of his music on their platforms.
