New York Post Faces Backlash Over Report On Burna Boy

Top US publication, New York Post has been at receiving end of a backlash following its post on Afro-fusion artiste, Burna Boy.

In the report, New York Post said Burna Boy rose to stardom on the influence of Beyonce.

The publication made the post moments before Burna Boy dropped his new album “Twice As Tall” on Friday.

Recall that the self-proclaimed African Giant worked in Beyonce’s 2019 Lion king-inspired album, having a track called ‘J Ara E “ for himself.

New York Post in its post wrote “As you can imagine, the Nigerian artist felt like worldwide royalty when he was approached by the Queen B — um, yes, Beyoncé — to work with her on last year’s “The Lion King: The Gift” album.

“Now, as people all over the planet are still streaming Bey’s “Black Is King” on repeat — and hearing Burna Boy’s smooth but funky jam “Ja Ara E” — the international sensation, born Damini Ogulu, is embracing his own ascending stardom with his new album, “Twice as Tall,” out Friday.”

The post, however, did not go down well with Nigerians who stormed the publication’s Twitter page to criticize them on the claims.
