Burna Boy

I am not Fela, leave me out of your schemes – Burna Boy fires back at Omoyele Sowore after being invited to #RevolutionNow protest.

The media personality and former Presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC) sent out the invitation via a tweet in which he stated how Burna Boy has been described as a revolutionary musician and also compared to late music legend, Fela Kuti.

Sowore tweeted:

Hello @burnaboy, everywhere I turn people describe you as a revolutionary musician, the foreign media even celebrate you compare you to Fela Kuti, but I am yet to see you lead anyone to a police station carrying a coffin for head of state! Join #Oct1stProtest #RevolutionNow.

Burna Boy however declined the invitation by insisting that he is not Fela Kuti. He also recalled how people stayed away from his mother’s family for associating with Fela.

Burna responded by tweeting
