The acclaimed Nigerian musician, Burna Boy, recently addressed his followers on social media to dispel the misconceptions caused by the widespread sharing of dated images suggesting he had recently shaved his beard. In a direct message posted on his Instastory, he emphasized that the images in question were from 2021, firmly stating,

"To all those who rely on @theshaderoom, @shaderoomborough, and similar platforms for their daily news, I shaved my beard in 2021, not recently."

Burna Boy expressed his frustration over the media's focus on trivial aspects of his personal life, such as his grooming choices, while seemingly neglecting his significant achievements in the music industry. He pointed out that despite setting and breaking numerous records and making history in his field, the attention from certain media outlets remains fixated on superficial topics.


He further criticized the quality of reporting, initially attributing such behavior exclusively to Nigerian blogs, only to realize that the influence of Western media has perpetuated this trend globally. Burna Boy's remarks highlight a call for media outlets to prioritize substantive news over sensationalism, reflecting his desire for a shift towards more meaningful journalism.
