Popular Nigerian Afro-fusion singer and songwriter, Damini Ogulu known better by his stage name, Burna Boy as usual gave his view on the socio-economic challenges facing the African continent. He did this via his instagram story.
The “Gbona” singer who is known for not holding back when it comes to expressing his mind, took the current natural disaster affecting Mozambique to question the African hierarchy on why it depends so much on the westerners for help when any country in Africa falls victim of natural disasters.
He went ahead and revealed how disappointed he was that a continent so blessed with abundant riches and resources would not be able to attend to its own problems excepts it calls for help from the west.
Here is what he wrote:
“There must be a way to help ourselves, how do we donate funds? We need our own AFRICAN emergency AID systems for AFRICA by AFRICANs . We are so rich in Africa, why must we always wait for help from Europe, America or even the “UN”?
What do you all think? Do you think the singer is actually making sense here?
