Burna Boy, the Grammy award-winning singer, recently stirred up a whirlwind of reactions on social media after announcing the release of a music video for his song “City Boys.” This track is from his latest album, “I Told Them.” The music video is set to be released on Friday, but the exact date remains unspecified.
The announcement, however, has been met with mixed reactions from the public, especially as the nation is still in mourning over the tragic passing of singer Mohbad. Many netizens have taken to social media platforms to express their views, with some questioning the timing of Burna Boy’s announcement.
A user, papivincci, commented, “Allow him to drop it first… then you all can report the video. Don’t advise someone who doesn’t have sense.” Another user, emmjayxchange45, expressed skepticism about the video’s potential viewership, stating, “He will look for viewers, but he won’t find any. Let’s bet on it.”
While some criticized Burna Boy for appearing insensitive, others defended the artist. A comment from iam_craftboy read, “I swear you people are doing too much. Did Burna Boy kill him? Nigerians want to overdo things now.” Another user, florishbaba, pointed out that life goes on, saying, “Burna shouldn’t drop his song, but you’ve been going to work.”
The controversy doesn’t end there. In a related development, a group of youths in Ikorodu has taken it upon themselves to guard Mohbad’s grave against any unauthorized access. This protective measure comes in light of reports suggesting that the police might exhume Mohbad’s body for further investigations.
The team, led by Assistant Commissioner of Police Saheed Kassim, is expected to conduct various tests, including autopsy, toxicology, and histology, on Mohbad’s remains. As the community awaits the police’s arrival, the youths remain steadfast in their commitment to safeguarding the late singer’s final resting place.
In conclusion, as the nation grapples with the loss of a beloved artist, the controversies surrounding other artists and their actions serve as a reminder of the complexities of the entertainment industry and public sentiment.
