Popular singer Burna Boy has come out to say that he is not a Nigerian artist despite being from Nigeria.

He recently revealed this via his Twitter handle and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to him, he believes this is the case because he doesn’t make money from this country, even if he still loves his home.

Burna added that he is only cruising in this part of the world, and majority of his income comes from abroad.

His words, “Me wey no even be Nigerian artist.”

“I’m from here and I live here because I love my home and my people, E no pass like that. I don’t make money from Nigeria. Na only cruise dey here.”

On the amount he recently got from Nyesom Wike in Rivers State, “Lol. I didn’t get a dime. Only the artists who honoured me by performing at my homecoming were paid. Get your facts right.”

WOW.
