Singer Burna Boy has announced that he would be leaving social media and that his handles will now be controlled by his management.
According to him, I’m leaving all social media platforms permanently. They r now all strictly for my show dates and new music. My social media will now be in the full control of management. Love and positivity to all.”
The announcement might be linked to his recent altercations with social media users after a Twitter user called him out for his comment on streaming numbers which appeared like he was shading 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 70 million views across all platforms.
he wrote: “This streaming shit be making people think they are actually talented. If joke things like ‘Baby Shark’ and “Gangnam Style” can do more numbers than everyone, don’t think you are talented or respected cuz of your streaming numbers. Everyone with real working brains know what is a joke and what is real. Anyway, plenty talk no dey full basket. Let time reveal all.”
