Grammy award-winning Nigerian singer, Burna Boy has been called out for allegedly snubbing the ‘only Nigerian correspondent’ at the Met Gala recently.
Recall that the self-styled ‘Odogwu’ made his debut appearance at the glamourous fashion event held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday night, May 1.
After the Gala, a journalist from Arise TV news named Kachi accused him of snubbing her, which she interpreted as an insult not just to herself, but to Nigeria as a whole.
A video of the moment Burna Boy allegedly ignored her has been shared on social media, and it seemingly tells a different story.
In the video, the “Last Last’ crooner can be seen climbing the stairs in his bespoke Burberry outfit when Kachi started calling “Odogwu” to catch his attention.
He advanced to the media booth and granted a brief interview to another journalist. Despite Kachi’s repeated requests for an interview, Burna Boy left the scene, but looked back and politely told her that he needed to leave.
This didn’t sit well with Kachi who criticized the singer for ‘ignoring’ her. She said she was livid and almost broke down in tears right there at the media stand because she felt embarrassed for calling Burna Boy “Odogwu, and still getting snubbed.
