Grammy award-winning singer, Burna Boy, has apologized to his fans for the delay at his Lagos Love, Damini concert on Sunday held at Eko Energy City. During the last 24 hours, angered fans took to social media to express their displeasure especially after having to wait over nine hours for their favourite to show up. Reacting to the outburst, the Grammy-award winner wrote on his verified Instagram handle, “I love you but I can’t do this again. The organizational structure and infrastructure are not there for the complexities of my audio and production needs.

“Let’s be clear. I wasn’t late, my band wasn’t late. We pride ourselves on being highly professional, especially with our stage craft. There were three options available to me; wait for the audio to be fixed and delay the show, come out at 11 pm as planned with no sound or call a breach of contract and pull the plug.

“I know I can’t go all over the world and neglect my own people so I’m taking matters into my own hands!

“I’m gathering the troops to work on building world class infrastructure in the Nigerian entertainment business.

“Investors and stakeholders interested pls hit me up, we need to make some changes.

“I apologise to my fans for how hectic it was, thank you for staying and weathering the storm with me.

“I commend my band fromtheoutsiders for making lemonade with the worst lemons we’ve ever seen!

“Wonder X, KC Kennedy: Olisa Adibua and Creative Economy Catalyst (CEC) did an abysmal job of executing anything and my fans should never have had to go through that.

“I’ll see you all again, on spaceship time! No one else’s. Love, Damini.”
