We don't respect ourselves-Sauti Sol’s BIEN defends Nigerian singer, Burna Boy, after calling Kenyans ‘Peasants’

Monday, October 22, 2018-Nigerian musician, Burna Boy, was in town over the weekend for a show.

His presence in the country rubbed many the wrong way after he called Kenyans ‘Peasants’ the last time he came to perform in Nairobi.

Among those who demanded an apology from the Nigerian singer is veteran event organizer and State House Director of Brand Strategy and Events, Big Ted.

Taking his Instagram page, Big Ted wrote:

"I have run concerts in Kenya for many years and one thing I have seen with many of the even so called "divas" is the respect they accord a visiting country..even in the past when the artist would leave the country without payment they would curse the promoter BUT NEVER the citizens...

“So I gather that @burnaboygram is in town for another collection from "peasants" first of all on MASHUJAA day...brathe listen our djs may play your songs...we may even dance to it see Kenyans are a cool lot we live with many of your brothers and sisters here happily and chop life together..

“We slide easy but we don't forget.. And we are also a very very proud people.. We work hard for every peasent cents we pay to see you...but we also party hard... We may be gullible to the lies and stories told to us by politicians but we are NOT STUPID...we demand an APOLOGY from you yes you @burnaboygram before you take to any stage in this peasant country...

“Our artists travel the whole world maybe not to your standard or class but we are out there respectfully earning every cent with gratitude to God and that country citizens...to the promoters we shall revisit!”

However, Bien of Sauti Sol defended Burna Boy claiming that we should respect ourselves first before we demand respect from others.

“If you demanded an apology this vehemently from political class. This would be a different country all together" Bien wrote.

“We don’t respect ourselves but we demand respect from others. We (Myself included) have brought this country and particularly our industry to its knees. I don’t endorse Burna Boy behavior.. But feel like we have bigger fish to fry” He added.
