Nigerian Afrobeats superstar, Burna Boy has voiced his opposition to the proposed military intervention in Niger Republic following a coup.
Speaking through an Instagram live session hosted by his aide, King Manny, the Grammy award-winning musician called upon Nigeria’s President Bola Tinubu to address the pressing fuel crisis in the country, which resulted from the abrupt removal of subsidy.
