Burna Boy Apologizes to Nigerian Blogs Amid Age Controversy

Grammy-winning singer Damini Ogulu, popularly known as Burna Boy, has issued an apology to Nigerian blogs following a recent controversy over his age. Western blogs had sparked speculation by sharing old photos of Burna Boy, casting doubt on his claim of being 32 years old.

In response, Burna Boy took to his Instagram account to clarify that the photos in question were outdated, emphasizing that he had shaved his beard in 2021, not recently. He expressed frustration at the focus on trivial matters by some media outlets, stating, “You parasites only care about who might have fck, who I’m fcking, and stupid shit like ‘Burna boy shaved his beard’.”

Acknowledging his earlier threats of legal action against Nigerian blogs, Burna Boy extended an apology, admitting that he had underestimated the influence of Western media on their reporting. He remarked, “I gotta apologize to Nigerian blogs now cuz I thought their stupidity was unique, I didn’t know they learned all they know from the West.”
