Grammy Award winning artiste, Burna Boy has been urged to apologise for the shooting at Club Cubana, Lagos, instead of ‘displaying rudeness’.
Ossai Success, the Special Assistant to Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, on Media, made the statement after hearing of the incident.
on June 8, 2022, the singer’s police escorts were alleged to have shot and wounded two people at the club after one of their partners turned down his offer to join him and his friends in their VIP section.
According to reports, the lady in question had faulted the club and Burna Boy’s “lack of remorse or accountability” for the incident which almost claimed two lives.
In reaction to the incident, the renowned music star made comments on social media few days after the incident. “Nigerian Social media can say BURNA BOY started Boko haram, e no go shock me,” Burna Boy tweeted.
Meanwhile, the multiple award winner got a different response from Success who took to his verified Facebook page on Tuesday, telling the talented artiste to publicly apologise for the incident.
In his words, “Burna Boy should apologize for the shooting at Cubana Night Club publicly. As a public figure, it’s your responsibility to take the blame and apologise whether you are wrong or right.
“Burna Boy keeping silent over what happened at Cubana club shows the pride in him. While investigations are ongoing, he should apologise to us all.
“What happened that night did happen because he was there and the officers attached to him did the shooting, so it’s paramount he tender his apology instead of displaying rudeness.
“Victims are in hospital and yet his pride doesn’t want to allow him to apologise. Burna Boy has no justification for not apologising.”
