He had made a tweet in the afternoon of Thursday, 23 where he raised an alarm about some Fulani men going on rampage and asking questions about why the protest was going in a tribal conflict way.
After he was called out by a Twitter user, Abubakar Hidima Ph.D.@Realoilsheikh, who said Burna Boy’s tweet was offensive.
“This is your @burnaboy and his expressive hypocrisy born out of bigotry & rancor. He deleted the tweet though, but it has been saved. Then see his second tweet in the 2nd frame.”
However in a swift response, Burna Boy apologised for his tweet despite that he had deleted it even before he was called out.
“This is from the bottom of my soul. I did not mean any harm by what I said. I sincerely apologise for coming across that way. I’m already in a dark place inside. You are my Brother and I LOVE YOU. Please don’t be offended. We are all hurt, angry, afraid and confused right now.”
