Burna Boy, an Afrofusion artiste, says he has been unable to participate in the #EndSARS protests because of pressing family issues.


The artiste, born Damini Ogulu, disclosed his mother’s health condition while responding to a Twitter user who asked him to join #EndSARS protest billed for Port Harcourt, Rivers state.


He said his mother had serious surgery last week at about the same time when the campaign against the special anti-robbery squad (SARS) started to gain momentum.


“I was dealing with a personal family issue at the beginning of these protests. My mum had serious surgery last week! ” he wrote on Twitter.

“We were all invested in making sure she recovers! I am not about that “put it all out on social media” life. We decided the focus must solely be on this protest.”


Burna Boy reiterated his commitment to the ongoing campaign against police brutality, adding that The Reach, his foundation, is still on course to help protesters.
