Nigerian Afrobeats Star Burna Boy Slams Coachella For Writing His Name With Small Font
Burna Boy isn’t impressed with Coachella for the small font used in writing his name on the line-up. The Afrobeats star clearly frustrated with this, wrote in a now-deleted Instagram Story:
‘@coachella I really appreciate you. But I don’t appreciate the way my name is written so small in your bill. I am an AFRICAN GIANT and will not be reduced to whatever that tiny writing means.
‘Fix tings quick please.’
The Ye hitmaker whose real name is Damini Ogulu, appears on the line-up for this year’s music and arts festival alongside Childish Gambino, Ariana Grande, Tame Impala among others. Burna Boy later added in another story:
‘I represent a whole generation of SOLID AFRICAN creatives going global. Not the soft, low self esteem Africans with the slave mentality. I will grant an interview soon to make myself understood.
‘Nothing I say comes from any place of “pride” or any sense of “entitlement”, it comes from my vision of the future of AFRICA not just AFRICAN music.’
