Burna Boy has given reasons why he was silent when the #EndSARS protest started last week.
Nigerians took to Twitter last week to blast the singer for being ”silent” on the protest.
In a series of tweets posted this evening, the singer said he was dealing with a personal family problem when the protests began. According to him, his mum had surgery last week and he had to focus his attention on her health.
I was Dealing with a Personal Family issue at the Beginning of these Protests . My mum Had Serious Surgery last week! We were all invested in making sure she recovers! i am not about that “put it all out on social media” life.We decided the focus must solely be on this protest.
