Grammy award-winning artist, Damini Ogulu, popularly known as Burna Boy, has taken to social media to offer Nigerian bloggers money in exchange for not reporting on him.
In a post on his Twitter account, the artist stated that while he has never paid any media houses to promote his brand, he is now open to doing so if it means not receiving any publicity.
This unexpected request from Burna Boy has sparked a debate on the ethics of accepting money in exchange for silence, with some arguing that this goes against journalistic integrity.
Burna tweeted, “How far. All these instablog, PulseNg e.t.c abeg make all of una do meeting then decide how much I go give all of una make una forget my name totally. I know say I never pay any of una before so I say make I just run am finally. I greet you, bros!!”
