Nigerian music sensation Burna Boy recently expressed his frustration with certain blogs.

In a post on X (formerly known as Twitter), he hinted at the possibility of legal action due to what he perceives as misrepresentation.

“Dat money wey I wan give dem Instablog dat time, e be like say na to give like 100 lawyers now. But I know say na hustle everybody dey hustle so e go pain me if I run dat kind tin. Why una dey push me an?”

The Last Last hitmaker further expressed displeasure over a situation involving Instablog, a popular Nigerian blog. He acknowledged the financial implications of legal action but conveyed his disappointment at the alleged misrepresentation.

The tweet suggests that Burna Boy had initially intended to support Instablog financially but is now reconsidering due to perceived negative actions. While he recognizes the challenges everyone faces in their hustle, he expresses his discomfort with the situation and questions why he is being targeted.

The tweet has sparked conversations within the entertainment industry and among fans about the role of media in shaping public perception. Some argue that media outlets should be held accountable for their content, while others emphasize the importance of responsible reporting to maintain trust.

As the situation unfolds, it remains to be seen whether Burna Boy will proceed with legal action or if a resolution can be reached through dialogue.
