Aristokrat Records ariste and Glo ambassador Burnaboy, in a new exclusive interview with Encomium, finally broke his silence about his underpants performance at the 2013 Felabration celebration.
The video of your performance at Felabration 2013 has
gone viral. How do you feel about it?
My Felabration performance was all about paying homage to the great Fela “Abamieda” himself. People who were there saw it for what it was.
Can you share with us what prompted you to strip to your underpants on stage?
I have said what I want to say on that subject. No further comment.
There’s been a lot of criticisms from various quarters including Seun Kuti that Fela never performed on stage in pants. Were you oblivious of that fact?
No comment on that.
Did you really have an erection on stage, because it seemed so from the pictures and what caused the erection?
How do you cope with female fans?
I love my female fans very much and they love me right back. I have a lot of love.
What’s next from Burna?
My tour is still ongoing, I had to stop in Lagos for a quick show but more videos are coming from the album soon so my fans should watch out for more good things from me.
