Burna Boy, the Grammy-winning Nigerian artist, has responded to reports that he suggested black Americans lack culture.
Burna Boy stated in a recent interview with the American media source Complex that he was misquoted.
According to the artist, his goal is to build bridges and bring the world together.
He stated that those spreading false information about him have an agenda.
Burna Boy stated:
“My mission is to bring us [the world] together. My mission is to build a bridge that can’t be broken, a bridge that should have always been there.
“People that said that [I alluded that Black
Americans don’t have culture] have their own agenda.
“Coming back to the point of that I said black people have no culture or whatever. Does that even make sense? If you watched the video of the interview, if you can show me the part where I said black Americans don’t haveculture. That is all I need. If somebody can just show me that part.
“There is nothing I said that Malcolm X didn’t say. But obviously, it’s Burna Boy saying it and he is from Africa and it fits the agenda for your little group or whatever.”
