Before we get to the reactions, see the Coachella lineup below.
After the Coachella lineup was announced, Burna Boy took to Instagram to share this.
He received a lot of backlash from fans and eventually took down the post. Burna Boy then went on to share another post on the 'gram.
See the different ways Nigerians are reacting below.
1.) This Guy Thinks Burna Boy Has More Fans Than Ariana Grande
Burna Boy shud care about font size as long as he's collecting his bag. He probably has as much fans as Arianna Grande if not more tbh but he shud just swallow his pride and focus his energy on killing it.— pALMWINE Papi (@senor_timi) January 3, 2019
2.) We Just Want To Know Who Did This
Who did this. You deserve 10k from me pic.twitter.com/h0RlSTnTIF— DREYLO BOY (@RealDreylo) January 3, 2019
3.) Of Course There Are Many People On Burna's Side
I agree with Burna Boy 100%! And this isn’t about Burna himself, this is about the culture this side of the world. Wiz refused to collect an award because presentation would be backstage. The following year, Davido collected it on stage. These are necessary battles! https://t.co/Mzw5HtpuP6— JJ. Omojuwa (@Omojuwa) January 3, 2019
4.) Those That Are Stating Facts
Black people need to stop worrying about white man’s approval. We were once kings and the white man came to us for approval.— Chukrulle, PhD (@chuckrulle) January 3, 2019
Burna boy does not need to strive to headline coachella for Us to know he is a mega star
5.) We've Got Jokes
Still don't understand why y'all are dragging burna boy?, mans longsighted and couldn't read his name on the bill ffs— Nigerianbadass?? (@Badass_nigerian) January 3, 2019
6.) Honestly Fear Nigerians
Nigerians I fear who no fear Una. Just yesterday Burna was a king with a ye louder than any ye— Uncle Stephen (@ItsUncleStephen) January 3, 2019
Today y’all dragging him by his dada. Wow!
7.) He Definitely Thinks Burna Boy Is Over Reacting
Burna boy. No notable award to his name.. No Billboard appearance. No BET nomination.. Just one breakthrough year and he gets picked for coachella for the first time in his life and this nigga thinks he's Drake. You want your name in caps like Ariana that has 141m followers on IG— BREZZIDENT (@OlaTheOG) January 3, 2019
8.) Some People Think It's A Matter Of Pride
Please don't compare Burna Boy to wizkid. Wizkid fought for African acts, Burna Boy is fighting due to pride. If the small fonts were reserved for just Africans, I would have agreed with his point. There are ppl bigger than him with smaller fonts. Rest— Doc C (@tweetMOPOL) January 3, 2019
9.) Let's Not Forget That Last Year Some People Thought Wizkid Should Have Headlined Instead Of Beyonce
Twitter hype has gotten into Burna Boy’s head and now he thinks he’s an African Giant and his name should be written over Ariana Grande?— African Giant - Ladi (@LadiSpeaks) January 3, 2019
10.) Some People Just Drop The Stats And Go
Wait, someone had the effrontery to say Burna boy has a larger fan base than Ariana Grande, even wizkid in his full glory would never say that... Check their stats, for example, YouTube subscribers of Ariana, Burna and Wizzy pic.twitter.com/OIFQN2JbTq— IA_Olami (@Iyun_Olami) January 3, 2019
11.) Why So Savage?
Coachella should remove Burna Boy and put Skibii because the whole world needs to hear the masterpiece that is "Sensima".— Ngozi. (@BiggieMonzie) January 3, 2019
12.) Well, This Might Just Be The Best Solution
Coachella will soon stop booking Nigerians since Wizkid didn’t show up last year and Burna Boy is already complaining— JAGS (@EtniesJags) January 3, 2019
They will tell us to carry our wahala and be going
13.) That's All He's Saying
Coachella, not Abule Egba street carnival. https://t.co/ZZCmcqivy0— FAVOUR ONYEOZIRI (GCFR) (@Rouvafe) January 3, 2019
14.) Nobody Is Your Friend On Twitter Oh!
Even the people Burna paid to run Ads during his concert are mocking him about this coachella saga moral lesson: nobody gives AF bout you, they just want your money.— IYAWO THICKER BODY (@sleeky4) January 3, 2019
Twitter is a dangerous zone
15.) Last Last, Everything Na Publicity
Now, Burna Boy’s name is on people’s lips everywhere. He’s a major talking point on shows worldwide. Now more people are curious about him. More people are now listening to his music.— Iseunife The First (@Shawnife_) January 3, 2019
There are actually positives to what he said about the Coachella text.
