Singer Burna Boy has announced that he would be leaving social media and that his handles will now be controlled by his management.
The announcement might be linked to his recent altercations with social media users after a Twitter user called him out for his comment on streaming numbers which appeared like he was shading Mayorkun .
Burna Boy had tweeted that some musicians actually think streaming numbers is equivalent to talent, which led many fans to think it was a shade thrown at Mayorkun who recently celebrated 70million views across all platforms.
A Twitter user reacted:
“Burna Boy is overrated”
“Burna Boy needs to blow”
This was y’all in 2018.
First he pisses on you all. Calls you “backward unprogressive fools”.
Then disrespects Tiwa

In response, the singer shared the below series of tweets.
Lol. Nice comedy. But really If I wanted to call out someone. It won’t be on twitter or Instagram, I’m more of the real life type. I State Facts, I don’t expect people like you to understand cuZ I do not speak unless it’s the TRUTH and I know ur not used to that so I get it.
FYI Hype is NOT what got me here neither is is what will keep me here. Same ppl that hail you will tear you down so it never mattered to me. I just do what’s true to me that’s all. “Overrate or Underrate” doesn’t change shit! Truth needs no validation from ignorance.
