Media personality and social activist, Shade Ladipo has joined Nigerians to slam Grammy award-winning singer, Burna Boy over his nonchalant attitude towards the 2023 general election.
According to reports, Burna Boy broke his silence concerning election matters after his fans slammed him for being mute. He took to his Instagram story to urge the Independent Electoral Commission (INEC) to be transparent and also emphasize that the electoral body allows Nigerians to choose their preferred presidential candidate without any external influence freely.
However, Nigerians who were not satisfied with his method of concern hurled insults at him. Reacting to the insults, the singer who had asked his fans earlier this year who they would vote for said he does not understand why people want him to be vocal about the elections.
Burna Boy stressed that personally, he does not have a preferred candidate he believes in.
Meanwhile, Shade Ladipo while lending her voice about the attitude of Burna Boy into a matter of national concern, she said the singer needs to understand the importance of the Nigerian election if he is a true pan-Africanist.
Ladipo went on to tag Burna Boy as a clown and an opportunist who only uses Nigerian/African issues to promote his music, adding that without canvassing for any political candidate, he could have admonished Nigerians to vote.
She wrote: “Your African ant is a clown. If you are a true pan-Africanist as you claim with your music then you must understand the importance of these elections. Promoting voter participation doesn’t involve supporting any candidate. You are a clown and an opportunist who only uses Nigeria/African issues to promote your music. F*cking fraud with fake dreads”.
