Burna Boy returns to Kenya one year after Peasant comment


By Annette Amondi

Nigerian dancehall-reggae artiste Burna Boy is scheduled to perform in Nairobi on Saturday.

The singer is back in the country a year after he infamously described Kenyans as peasants.

The artiste, known for his hits Yawa-Dey, Soke and Tonight  was in Kenya last year in April 2017 when he gave what KOT termed as a disappointing performance.

The singer angered fans at Club Privee in Westlands when he showed up for a show at 3am and performed just for an hour.

After being called out by KOT, Burna Boy reacted to the criticism with a tweet that described Kenyans as “peasants”.

Burna boy also threatened a media personality saying he would buy his media house and turn it into an ash tray.

Burna  boy will perform at the Uhuru Gardens for the Thrift Social-Athleisure Edition. The event is a showcase of creatives, art, leisure and fashion.
