Nigerian Afro-fusion star Burna Boy, born Damini Ogulu, has rubbished reports that he is scheduled to perform in Uganda on 25th December 2022 at Kololo airstrip.
KAMPALA | NOW THEN DIGITAL — In less than a month following the release of Burna Boy’s sixth full-length album Love, Damini, there are reports that Burna Boy will perform in Uganda at Kololo airstrip on the 25th of December 2022.
- According to reports on social media, Nigerian Afrofusion star Burna Boy born Damini Ogulu will perform in Uganda on 25th December at Kololo.
- In his latest statement, Burna Boy has clarified that he has been falsely presented at a concert called “Burna Boy Live in Uganda on 25th December”. This would be his second appearance in Uganda since his show back in March 2019.
- Many fans have commented that Burna Boy’s event poster is not as good as local artists’, while others say that tweeting “I won’t be there” is rather harsh a reaction to the fake news.
- As of right now, Burna Boy has a heavy schedule. He and Jhene Aiko will be performing this weekend at the KULTURELAND Festival in the 6ix. KULTURELAND is the largest Afro-fusion festival in Canada and also features Latin Urbano, dancehall, and R&B music.
Burna Boy, who is known for his song “Love, Damini”, responded to the advertisement on Twitter by saying it is fake and false. He went on to assure fans that he would not be coming to Uganda anytime soon.
On his Twitter account, the ‘Kilometer’ singer posted a fake event poster that reads: ”REDBULL AND OUMA PRESENTS BURNA BOY LIVE IN UGANDA DATES OPEN 10 AM 25th AIRSTRIP NEWS sh5,000.000 RE CALL: 256753730167.”
Then later discredited it:
“Uganda my People! Please disregard this show it’s fake and False advertising I won’t be there”, he said.

On the event poster, some fans commented that local artists have better quality concert posters than Burna Boy’s, while others said tweeting “I won’t be there” was rather harsh a way to disassociate yourself from the fake news.
"I won't be there" is rather too harsh a way to disassociate yourself from the said fake news.
Better still you would've said 'My Ugandan fans are great people, but I currently have no show scheduled for Uganda. However, I look forward to coming asap.
Love, Damini aka Burna.
