Burna Boy has called out Coachella organisers for belittling him after he was named among the performers at the 2019 event.
2018 was indeed a good year for singers Mr Eazi and Burna Boy, as they were bought named among the performers in the upcoming Coachella 2019.
Well, there was something Burna Boy was not pleased about the announcement that he was to perform at the international music show.
Burna Boy took to his Instagram page to share the news. Although appreciative for the invite, Burna Boy is however displeased that his name was written so small on the list against others that were written boldly.
He has however urged the organisers to write his name boldy as he is an African music giant and that he will not allow himself to be belittled.
His post read :
@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 reduced to whatever that tiny writing means. Fix tings quick please
Organisers of the event are yet to respond but we can tell you categorically that we are more than excited to see what the response of the Coachella team would be.
After this Happened, Twitter Came Hard for Him
I Love Burna Boy but I don't think the font size thing with Coachella was anything to rant about.
Go there and murder the stage,that's how you show them you are an African Giant.

Burna Boy is bigger than Ariana.
Yemi Alade is bigger Beyonce.
Tekno is bigger than Chris Brown.
Olamide is bigger than Rick Ross.
MI is bigger than Jay-Z.
Wizkid is bigger than Drake.
Tiwa is bigger than Rihanna.
Buhari is bigger than Trump.
Since 2019 is a year of comedy.

Burna Boy not being recognised as an African Giant by Coachella will not distract us from the fact that ASUU is still on strike after 9 weeks.
What are we saying? #EndASuuStrike
When do we want it? NOW!!

Please don't compare Burna Boy to wizkid. Wizkid fought for African acts, Burna Boy is fighting due to pride. If the small fonts were reserved for just Africans, I would have agreed with his point. There are ppl bigger than him with smaller fonts. Rest

Coachella should remove Burna Boy and put Skibii because the whole world needs to hear the masterpiece that is "Sensima".

H.E.R got 5 grammy nominations just last month. FIVE. And her name is written in the same font size as Burna Boy's. Person wey never even enter Billboard Hot 100 in his career. Just stop being egoistic.
