Attendees of Burna Boy’s Lagos new year ‘Love Damini’ music concert were left disappointed on Sunday night after the singer arrived late for his much anticipated performance.
The fans who have voiced their displeasures on twitter claim that the performance began around 9 p.m., but Burna Boy didn’t take the stage until around 3 a.m.
Entertainment commentator, Joey Akan, tweeted, “You queue for six hours for fuel;still stand six hours for Burna Boy. Life tough!”
Sharing a video from the event, @ade_adeayo tweeted, “The situation on ground. Almost 2am and Burna Boy’s concert is basically yet to start.
The situation on ground.
Almost 2AM and Burna Boy’s concert is basically yet to start.
Some people have been around since 9PM.
For an artists with the highest level of international exposure this is beyond terrible and unprofessional. pic.twitter.com/nL3v6FRnV5

“Some people have been around since 9pm. For an artist with the highest level of international exposure, this is beyond terrible and unprofessional.”
Giving an update, the tweep wrote, “The band is playing and Burna Boy appears on stage at 3:30.
“All is forgiven, and the crowd cheers. No lesson learnt. Goodnight guys and happy new year.
“And mind you, there was no apology. He even claimed it was out of goodwill and Seyi Vibez pleading that he choose to remain at the venue.”
As he recalled how he was accused of killing someone in the club in August 2022, Burna Boy lashed out at the fans who came to his event on Sunday in Lagos.
The performer claimed that if it weren’t for Seyi Vibes, another musician, he would have left.
Speaking in Pidgin English, he said, “If no be Seyi Vibes, I for just don dey go house. But I dey here with una, after you na don talk sey I kill person for Cubana, after una don talk say my mama dance for Fela.”
After blowing hot, the artist entertained the crowd by singing his top hits, much to their previous chagrin.
