Following recent controversies trailing him over his alleged involvement in Mr. Kay’s robbery incident, Burna Boy’s concert scheduled for Sunday, December 17, has been postponed.
The singer was declared an accomplice and wanted by the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) in the incident that took place at the Eko Hotel &Suites, Lagos after the said victim had finished performing at the “Buckwyld N Breathless” concert.
According to the press statement released by the promoters of the concert, due to the allegations the singer needs time and space even as he and his management are working to clear his name from the case.
It further states that the new date for the concert will be communicated soon while all tickets purchased will remain valid and disinterested persons have the option to demand for full refund from the ticketing partners immediately.
Read the press release below:
“Bavent Street Live, promoters of The Burna Boy Concert Show, scheduled for the 17th Dec. 2017 at the Balmoral Convention centre wish to inform all fans and lovers of Nigeria’s top-most afro-fusion artist, Burna Boy, and our corporate partners and sponsors of a shift in the date of the above scheduled concert.
This is solely due to the recent allegations leveled against Burna Boy, which are as of now, unfounded and are yet to be proven. Burna Boy and his management are working assiduously within the ambits and requirements of the law to clear his name in these investigations.
He therefore needs time to come back and promises an incredible performance for his fans. For now, he needs the time and space to deal with these allegations, which have arisen at such a crucial and sensitive time when he’s working on his album and his concert.
We ask that we respect the time he needs during this challenging period.
The new date for The Burna Boy Show will be communicated in the near future, (all tickets purchased will remain valid, however you have the option to receive your full refund from the ticketing partners immediately).
We thank all Burna Boy fans, our great partners and sponsors for your continued love, trust and support.”
