Burna Boy is trending on Twitter for funny reasons after he refunded a guest’s ticket money and sacked him from the front row at his concert last night.
The incident happened during the Atlanta stop of the Afrofusion artiste’s ‘African Giant’ tour on Tuesday.
Video clips widely circulated on social media showed Burna Boy taking a break from his energetic performance to address the fan over his unencouraging demeanour while he entertained patrons.
He then ordered security to see off the man from the venue saying, “Security, carry this guy commot for my front. He can go to the back though. He can’t stay in the front. I don’t come here to play so if you want to come and do a fashion show and stand and look at me, go to a f**king church. Your face is not encouraging me.”
ICYMI, @burnaboy legit refunded someone his ticket money and told him to go home at his show in ATL yesterday.

Another video that has also emerged shows Burna Boy performing on stage with a fan who many say it’s the same person the musician had sent out of his concert moments before.
Although we cannot immediately confirm the reports, the two appeared to have had a good time entertaining patrons as they effortlessly did the popular Zanku dance to the admiration of all.
So after Burna Boy got mad at a fan for not putting on an encouraging face, he called him up to the stage to shut the show down 🦍🚀 pic.twitter.com/3kBTATi1IZ

Hey @burnaboy, don't be stupid please. Even as a joke, this is a sour tart. Some people go to concerts just to be there. I'm not trying to sweat and ruin my shirt. He may have just gotten bad news and just wants to preoccupy his mind, you don't know that. Besides, he paid you.

I think it’s fair that @burnaboy eject that ‘discouraging face’ during his concert.
His concert, his rules.
What I think would also be fairer is the ‘discouraging face’, using e money+video evidence, to sue Burna’s ass for the humiliation and distress suffered.

I never heard or saw any rapper or performer do something so idiotic, he just made one of his own fans a fool , but for all that’s infront of a Burna boy show next time please dance 💀

Burna boy refunding a fan his money and sending him to the back cos his face was discouraging seems funny to a lot of people.
I still don't get the joke.
A much better joke would be the clowns trying to make Burna look good by saying he invited him back on stage.

Everybody there should have asked for a refund.
Let's see if he can keep up with the energy.

If it was Nairamarley that did what Burna did to that guy on stage now, moral twitter will rise up but since its someone else they're suddenly blind. Talking about "he can't do no wrong in my eyes".
Una hypocrisy here ehn

Big ups to you Burna Boy for this, I'm so doing this in my future shows.
When U despise a performer to cross a thousand miles with just a little support from real fans, he is never scared of losing you.
Shouts to my real fans, you'll be happily in the crowd hooting at them 👊😂 pic.twitter.com/vATS40qCy3
