Disc jockey DJ Switch has condemned Grammy Award-winning singer Burna Boy’s reaction to the shooting at socialite Obi Cubana’s club.
The popular DJ and rights activist took to Twitter on Monday to express her disappointment in the singer over his reaction to the saga.
She wrote: “Burnaboy, our youths have very little to look up to & emulate. As an African giant, you wield power & influence & so ur attitude towards the incident is sad & condemnable. We must act better to deserve better. The police shld investigate thoroughly (if they are capable)@burnaboy.”
Qed.ng reported the Lagos State Police Commissioner’s Special Squad detained five policemen attached to Burna Boy for attempted murder after they shot two clubbers Lawrence Irebami, the husband of the woman Burna Boy allegedly made sexual advances to and another identified simply as Tolu, at Club Cubana in Lagos on June 8.
Police sources said the singer allegedly fled the country immediately after the incident to avoid questioning, adding: “Already, five police escorts attached to the singer have since been arrested and are being detained at the Lagos State Police Command, Ikeja.”
Addressing the matter in a Twitter post on Wednesday, June 15, Burna Boy pointed out that he was not shocked about the reports linking him to the incident.
“The Nigerian social media can say Burna Boy started Boko haram, e no go shock me,” he tweeted.
