The Afrobeat superstar expressed regret to his supporters and gratitude for sticking by him while he waited and weathered the storm.
Burna Boy, a Grammy Award winner, has apologized to his fans for keeping them waiting for seven hours during his concert in Lagos.
He received criticism and calls from supporters on January 1 for keeping them waiting for several hours before taking the stage.
In a post on his Instagram story, Burna Boy claimed the delay was due to a lack of infrastructure on the part of the show’s organizers to accommodate his audio and production requirements.
However, the Afrobeat icon expressed regret to his supporters and gratitude for sticking by him until the storm passed.
Read the statement below;
I love you but I can’t do this again. The organizational structure and infrastructure is not there for the complexities of my audio and Production needs.
Let’s be clear. I wasn’t late, my band wasn’t late. We pride ourselves on being highly professional especially with our stage craft. There were three options available to me; wait for audio to be fixed and delay the show, come out at 11pm as planned with no sound or call breach of contract and pull the plug.
I know I can’t go all over the world and neglect my own people so I’m taking matters into my own hands! I’m gathering the troops to work on building world class infrastructure in the Nigerian entertainment business.
Investors and stakeholders interested pls hit me up, we need to make some changes.
I apologise to my fans for how hectic it was, thank you for staying and weathering the storm with me
I commend my band @fromtheoutsiders for making lemonade with the worst lemons we’ve ever seen!
Wonder X, KC Kennedy, Olisa Adibua and Creative Economy Catalyst (CEC) did an abysmal job of executing anything and my fans should never have had to go through that.
I’ll see you all again, on spaceship time! No one else’s.
