Is this the best apology Kenyans will get from Nigerian singer Burna Boy?

Kenyans have been arm-twisting Nigerian singer Burna Boy into offering an apology after he called them peasants last time he was in the country.

Many had vowed to boycott his show but Kenyans were shocked after learning it was sold out despite him refusing to apologize.

Among those who called out Burna Boy to apologize was State House Director of Brand Strategy and Events Big Ted.

On Instagram he said:

“I have run concerts in Kenya for many years and one thing I have seen with many of the even so called “divas” is the respect they accord a visiting country..even in the past when the artist would leave the country without payment they would curse the promoter BUT NEVER the citizens… So I gather that @burnaboygram is in town for another collection from “peasants” first of all on MASHUJAA day…brathe listen our djs may play your songs…we may even dance to it see Kenyans are a cool lot we live with many of your brothers and sisters here happily and chop life together..We slide easy but we don’t forget.. And we are also a very very proud people.. We work hard for every peasent cents we pay to see you…but we also party hard… We may be gullible to the lies and stories told to us by politicians but we are NOT STUPID…we demand an APOLOGY from you yes you @burnaboygram before you take to any stage in this peasant country…”


It seems Burna Boy has made a U-turn and decided to say something nice about Kenya. He didn’t really say he’s sorry, but said that something nice about Kenya.

Here’s what he said:
