Nigerian singer Damini Ogulu better known as Burna Boy felt disrespected over what happens to be a glitch (not intentional) on the part of Coachella for writing his name in small fonts for a forthcoming event sponsored by Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.
The singer whose hit single Like to Party won the best new act in the MTV African Awards 2013 in his own words has reprimanded the event organizers’ that they “fix the thing quick” because he is an ‘African giant.’
In a now-deleted Instagram Story, the Ye Ye crooner spat furry on the Coachella organizers, who have placed him below Cirez D, Chvrches, and Dillon Francis and written his name in a small font on the Sunday line-up.
“@coachella I really appreciate you. But I don’t appreciate the way my name is written so small in your bill. I am an AFRICAN GIANT and will not be reduced to whatever that tiny writing means. Fix tings quick please,” Burna Boy wrote on his Instagram page.
He vented his irritation further by writing:
“I represent a whole generation of SOLID AFRICAN creatives going global. Not the soft, low self-esteem Africans with the slave mentality. I will grant an interview soon to make myself understood. Nothing I say comes from any place of “pride” or any sense of “entitlement”, it comes from my vision of the future of AFRICA, not just AFRICAN music,” the 27-year-old later added.
Mr Eazi who happens to have his name in small fonts and also features in the event seems to be very at ease with himself.
The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival (commonly referred to as Coachella or the Coachella Festival) is an annual music and arts festival held at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California, located in the Inland Empire’s Coachella Valley in the Colorado Desert.
