COVID-19: Burna Boy tells fan it’s govt’s duty and not his to make lives better for citizens

Burna Boy

Singer, Damini Ogulu popularly known as Burna Boy has taken time out to explain to a Twitter user why it is the responsibility of the government to make lives better for people amid the outbreak of COVID-19 virus.

The Afro-fusion singer had taken to Twitter on Tuesday to inform that he’ll be live on Instagram for the first time in a long time asking his followers on social media to hook up with him on Instagram.

“Imma go live on Instagram today for the first time. Feel free to holla,” Burna Boy wrote on Twitter.

However, @declean07 who didn’t find his post to be pleasant replied Burna Boy’s post saying; “We don’t need you live here. Go back to your community and do something meaningful to them during this hard time of coronavirus.”

After reading through the comments of @declean07, Burna Boy replied thus; “Even though I do my best for the many as I can (and I urge anyone who can to do same), the fact that I do, doesn’t mean it is my job. That’s the government’s job not mine. So, don’t come here to advise me, advise your government and see if they answer you”

The spat between Burna Boy and the Twitter user comes after standup comedian, Funnybone has threatened to sue a photographer who attended the recently staged Africa Magic Viewer’s Choice Awards (AMVCA) despite testing positive for COVID-19.

The humour merchant took to his official Instagram page late on Sunday to call out the attendee who arrived from London sick and still decided to attend the award ceremony despite knowing the state of his health.
