It’s was supposed to be one of the electrifying performances for Kenyans but things didn’t go as planned from the word go.
Nigerian singer Burna Boy, whose performance had been overhyped, left his Nairobi fans disappointed on Saturday after hitting the stage at 4 am and performing only 4 songs for an hour then he left.
Fans had waited all night as deejay Joe Mfalme kept them busy, with some threatening that they would demand a refund of their Sh1,500 ticket cash. Kenyans started firing back and took the war to Twitter.
It all started after a radio presenter tweeted that he does not play much of Davido’s and Burna Boy’s music, the singer went wild and said that he and Davido could actually buy Kiss 100 radio station and turn it into an ashtray.
He also called Kenyans “peasants” a thing that annoyed them even more. Kenyans started attacking him on Twitter forcing the controversial artist to start unfollowing Kenyans.
I vowed never to play Davido’s songs on my Radio show… Now it’s @burnaboy … N FYI my fans don’t even know you.

Burna Boy now remain with fake naija fans who get music via Bluetooth while Kenyans download them online. I see u die soon of poverty.

You wanna bring in Burna Boy to perform at top dollar yet there’s many Kenyan artistes who could perform way better than that “diva”

If Burna Boy can block 40M Kenyans in 30mins calculate the number of albums he can produce in a year pic.twitter.com/opfAlf8vvR

LMAO! Burna Boy can’t perform for more than one hour but can spend up to 8 hours blocking “fans” on Twitter.
