Burna Boy threatens to hire 100 lawyers, sue bloggers who pushes him
Afrobeat star, Damini Ogulu, aka Burna Boy, has threatened to hire over a 100 lawyers to sue Nigerian bloggers, stating that he is being pushed to do so.
The Grammy-award-winning artiste made this known in a post via his X handle on Wednesday.
This is coming almost two weeks after the “I Told Them’ crooner offered to give Nigerian bloggers money to stop reporting about him.
Burna Boy noted that although he had never paid any media house to publicise his brand, he was open to doing so in exchange for no publicity.
“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!” he tweeted on November 3.
This comes almost two weeks after the “I Told Them’’ crooner offered to give Nigerian bloggers money to stop reporting about him.
Burna Boy has now said he would instead use the money he had wished to pay the bloggers to instead hire 100 lawyers to face off with the pesky Nigerian bloggers while also noting that he was being considerate because he knows they (bloggers) are trying to make ends meet.
At an interview on Kiss FM in London last month, the famously short-tempered singer stated that everywhere would be ‘shaking’ if he had access to his X account.
He said, “If I had access to my account, everywhere would be shaking every day. The ground will be elevated based on my feelings and I don’t like disrespect.
“They always try to disrespect me on the internet. So, my team didn’t let me at them. If not, then the ground will elevate. I will spend too much time there; honestly, I will spend a lot of time there.”
The African Giant, as he is widely known, has secured four 2024 Grammy nominations across various categories, including Best African Music Performance, Best Melodic Rap Performance, Best Global Music Album, and Best Global Music Performance.
