Uche Jombo has called out popular American media platform, New York Post, for inferring that Beyonce’s alliance with Burna Boy made Afrobeat go international. The media platform recently published an article about Burna Boy, who just dropped a new album “Twice as Tall”, with the headline, ” Beyonce-endorsed Burna Boy makes Afrobeat go international”.
The headline didn’t settle in well with a number of Nigerians, and they tool to twitter to make it clear that Burna Boy was already an international artiste before working with Beyonce. The headline made it looked as if it was Beyonce’s endorsement that made him and his works go international.
Uche Jombo reacted to the post on Twitter, by quote-tweeting New York’s post, saying, “I love Beyonce as the next person, but you are wrong with this – Beyonce-endorsed Burna Boy ‘makes’ a whole Afrobeat go international, such a thin piece let down by the headline. Do better.”
