Burna Boy just announced that he will be leaving social media permanently. His management will now be in full control of his accounts to post mainly about his tour dates and other official dates about his brand.
There are speculations that he made this decision because of his recent altercations on social media users. A twitter user called him out on a recent comment that Burna Boy made about Mayorkun’s streaming numbers. The argument is that is he was using it to throw some sort of shade over Mayorkun.
Burna Boy had tweeted that some musicians actually think streaming numbers is equivalent to talent, which led many fans to think it was a shade thrown at Mayorkun who recently celebrated 70million views across all platforms.
A Twitter user reacted:
“Burna Boy is overrated”
“Burna Boy needs to blow”
