Singer Burna Boy has become a trending topic after he refunded a man’s ticket money and asked him to leave the front row during a show.
The “Anybody” crooner was performing at his African Giant tour in Atlanta when he spotted a man in the front row who appeared not to be dancing to the music.
The singer stopped mid-way during his performance to angrily call the man out. “Your face is not encouraging me,” he told the fan. He also refunded his money and asked security to escort him out of the show.
Burna Boy, however, reportedly later told the man to stay and called him to join him for a dance on stage.
This has stirred mixed reactions from Burna Boy’s fans with some applauding the singer for “pushing off negative vibes” and others criticizing him for his actions towards the fan.
One Twitter user wrote, @mrmanhere_, wrote: “Burna boy has got to be the single most petty Nigerian to have ever lived”

If you don’t see anything wrong with what Burna Boy did, you’re clearly not seeing right.

Burna boy refunding a fan who came to his show and telling him to use the back seats or go home. In his words, “I don’t want people who will come to my show to do fashion. I’m not encouraged.”
