Burna and Mr Eazi are the only Nigerian singers announced as performers for the 2019 Coachella Music Festival. and they’ll be performing alongside Ariana Grande, Childish Gambino, Wiz Khalifa, Kid Cudi, Solange among others for the 2019 Coachella Music Festival in California.
Burna took to Instagram to call out the organisers for writing his name in a small font, shortly after the announcement, asking them to “fix things quick please”.
The singer who also called Nigerians ”Backward unprogressive fools” because he feels they do not know their rights has since released a statement to clarify his comment stating it is not coming from a place of “pride” or sense of “entitlement” but from his vision for the future of Africa not just African music.

This attitude right here is the obvious reason why I only subscribe only to the MUSIC and not to the ARTIST that made the song.

“Backward unprogressive fools” because you were corrected to embrace the pyramid pattern of how things works
First feature and you want to be the headline artist.
One can overreact but failing to admit one’s mistakes is where the problem lies
He thinks he’s Mandela too.

They put your name in a small font because you’re not as big as the artistes in bigger fonts, but you’re calling your fans backward unprogressive fools
