Pop musician, Burna Boy, has announced his ‘permanent’ exit from social media.

He announced his exit early Wednesday via Instastories.

“I am leaving all social media platforms permanently. They are now strictly for my show dates and new music. My social media will now be in the full control of my management. Love and positivity to all,” he said.

The 27-year-old singer did not give reasons for his action.

Burna has been blighted by controversies in recent times. One of which is his criticism of organisers of world music festival, Coachella, whom he claimed disrespected him by writing his name in small fonts on the festival’s poster.

He had insisted on a change and stirred discussion on social media after calling himself an ‘African Giant’.

In May, he was also criticised when he knocked local artistes who sign international deals.

His comment about such deals had come in the wake of Tiwa Savage’s new deal with Universal Music Group.

The singer also got blows from Nigerians when he slammed his colleagues who boast about their music streaming numbers, saying that it was not a reflection of talent.

His comment was seen as targeted at DMW’s star Mayorkun.
