Burna Boy has been having a great 2019 so far, from winning a BET award to performing at Coachella. In addition, he has been doing songs and shows with other world acclaimed artistes. Furthermore, his songs have been used as soundtracks in popular series, and his efforts have also been formally recognized by The Grammys. However, this is not what’s making Burna Boy go viral today.
ICYMI, @burnaboy legit refunded someone his ticket money and told him to go home at his show in ATL yesterday.

A video shared on social media recently shows Burna Boy kicking a fan out of his show in Atlanta. The popular Nigerian singer was captured as he asked the unknown man to get out and leave space for true fans at the front. Burna Boy also called the man’s face discouraging and reached into his pocket to refund his ticket money.
This incident is thought to have been provoked by the fact that the man was just standing around and not singing along to the performance. Burna Boy then went on to insist that he worked very hard to make his true fans happy. In addition, he said that if anyone was just there to stand, then they should have gone to church instead.
Fans of Burna Boy were quick to take to social media to defend his actions, as well as disagree with how the whole situation was handled. This comes barely a day after his new single with Jorja Smith was released, which has more than 600,000 views on YouTube already.
You must feel my anointing or go back home. Burna no go kill person 🤣🤣🤣

People paid to come watch you @burnaboy perform and you told them to leave your concert because their face is not encouraging? You think your face is cute? You embarrassed them for laughs? Giant? That was very little of you. You have a disgusting character. Fix up
