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.
