Popular Nigerian artiste, Burna Boy, has knocked the organisers of Coachella, an international music and arts festival for writing his name in small font on its event flyer.
Burna Boy, who rose to great fame following the success of his album, Outside, took to his Instagram handle on Thursday, January 3, 2019 to rant about why his name was written so small.
Burna Boy described himself as an “AFRICAN GIANT”, and also called on the event organisers to “fix things quick”.
“@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 be reduced to whatever that tiny writing means. Fix things quick please,” Burna Boy wrote on his Instagram story.
Messages on Instagram story disappear after 24 hours.
