Nigerians are reading the New York Post for filth after the American outlet tweeted their publication in which they said that Burna Boy’s excellent new album, Twice as Tall, is Beyoncé-endorsed.
Here’s what how the outlet introduced Burna and his album:
“Burna Boy is, well, on fire.
As you can imagine, the Nigerian artist felt like worldwide royalty when he was approached by the Queen B — um, yes, Beyoncé — to work with her on last year’s “The Lion King: The Gift” album.”
And this has offended many Nigerians, because Burna didn’t need Beyoncé’s endorsement or validation. Check out some of the reactions on social media:

So Burna Boy cannot do anything by himself except endorsed by Beyoncé? And Afrobeat didn’t go international with Fela Kuti in the late 60s. It did in 2020. Awon oniyeye. https://t.co/5le937ingp
