The Publicity Secretary of the State chapter of the defunct Action Congress Joe Igbokwe has slammed Burna Boy after he stated a few days ago that he is not a Nigerian.
It would be recalled that a few days ago, the Grammy award winner Burna Boy said he is not a Nigerian artist because he doesn’t make his money from Nigeria. On the 18th of May, Burna Boy took to his Twitter page to denounce his nationality as a Nigerian and also disclosed that he does get his money from Nigeria.
He tweeted, “I’m from here and I live here because I love my home and my people, E no pass like that. I don’t make money from Nigeria. Na only cruise dey here.” His post caused a stir on social media with many of his fans lambasting him over his comment.
However, Joe Igbokwe has reacted to the comment of Burna Boy and has called him to redraw his statement and apologize to the nation or plot his own downfall without his knowledge.
In his words he wrote….
My dear Burna Boy, IF IT IS TRUE YOU SAID THIS GET IT INTO YOUR HEAD THAT YOU HAVE STARTED PLOTTING YOUR DOWNFALL WITHOUT KNOWING IT. IF I WERE YOU I WILL DENOUNCE THIS SCURRILOUS DRIVEL AND APOLOGIZE TO THE NATION. SOME FUNNY PEOPLE ARE STILL UNDERRATING THE MOST EDUCATED BLACK NATION ON EARTH.”
“THEY ARE STILL LOOKING DOWN ON THE BIGGEST ECONOMY IN AFRICA. THEY ARE STILL IGNORING THE MOST ENDOWED BLACK NATION ON EARTH. THEY ARE STILL BELITTLING THE MOST ADVANCED BUSINESS HUB IN AFRICA. THEY ARE STILL LOOKING DOWN ON THE MOST POPULOUS COUNTRY IN AFRICA.”
“THEY ARE IGNORING THE MOST TRAVELLED CITIZENS IN AFRICA. THEY ARE STILL NEGLECTING THE SMARTEST, THE MOST SKILLED, AND MOST TALENTED PEOPLE IN AFRICA.”
