Nigerian music star Burna Boy is no doubt one of the celebrities who consistently speak out against the social and political ills that plague the nation.

But the music star has largely been quiet at a time when Nigerians have poured out on the streets en masse to protest against police brutality in solidarity with notable celebrities in the country.

So far Burns Boy has yet to appear in any of the #EndSars protest across the country to the surprise of his fans and Nigerians in general.


He has now come out to explain the reason for his absence. The singer says his inability to join the #EndSars campaign is for personal reasons.

He made this known while responding to fans who requested his presence at the Port Harcourt branch of the #EndSars protest.

“Abeg come for the PH protest tomorrow Burna boy, join us,” a fan beckoned.


The African Giant crooner replied with a shocking response, noting he is currently looking after his mother who underwent major surgery last week and is still in recovery.

Probably my BIGGEST frustration atm. But I have to stay here and make sure my mum recovers fully from her surgery. I dey wit una FULLY! …Pls Dm @protectng2020 if you can volunteer to help at the ph protest #SARSMUSTEND,” he tweeted.

Despite being held back by his mum’s rehabilitation, Burna Boy went on to give the movement his full support.
