Nigerian singer Damini Ebunoluwa Ogulu, best known as Burna Boy, has made a stirring demand from his country’s media.
The Last Last hitmaker took to social media with a humble plea, asking journalists and bloggers to refrain from covering events about him.
This is coming days after he made headlines for rejecting a Dubai gig of N4 billion because he wouldn’t be allowed to smoke “grass” in their country.
The influential musician, known for making headlines, proposed that media organisations convene a meeting to discuss a specific financial arrangement. He expressed his willingness to compensate them for their cooperation.
Burna, however, noted that although he has not made any payments to any media organisations in the past, he has decided to address this situation now.
“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!!”

Twitter Critic Daniel Regha criticises Burna
Daniel criticised the musician’s post and pointed out that the Nigerian media played a role in the growth and success he is experiencing today.
“Burna, the Nigerian blogs u are trying to discredit have contributed to ur growth in life; Some news might be wrong but just like fans, u owe ’em a lot of thanks.
“Many people won’t hear about u, ur wins, or projects if they hadn’t promoted it. Stop acting like u are self-made, many people paved a way for u..”
The self-styled Odogwu still maintained his stance as he added Daniel Regha to the payroll he proposed.
“Oga how much be your money?? Make you sef develop amnesia for my matter. You follow for people wey I dey talk about,” he replied.
