Burna Boy joins #EndSARS protest amidst knocks from Nigerians

Afrobeats singer, Damini Ogulu aka Burna Boy, has finally joined the #EndSARS movement which seeks the scrapping of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad of the Nigeria Police Force.

The ‘On the low’ singer issued a statement on Saturday amid blows from Nigerian youths who had expressed displeasure over the musician’s silence.

The self-acclaimed African giant said the demonstration should not be about him but about deeper issues.

He wrote, “I have taken the past week to gather my thoughts. I usually respond to these matters with my emotions and frustrations. This time I have chosen to ignore the attempts; well-meaning or derogatory to draw me out. This is not and should not be about me. It is about a fundamental problem that affects us all Nigerians, as Africans, and as human beings.

“The state of our country, Nigeria, is tricky; it has been from before I was born. My greatest concern in all of this is that SARS will end now as it allegedly has several times in the past (I recall giving calls to end SARS during my USA tour in April 2019 and morph into a different entity down the line with a different form or a different name. In my opinion, abolishing the unit is a definite first step but we cannot afford to stop there.”

The singer also commended the protesters for exercising their right to demonstrate.

He also stated that he had created a fund that would be used in helping protesters that are wrongfully arrested by the police.

The singer added, “I have created a sub-fund under my charity- The Reach called (@ProjectProtectng) to help protesters that are wrongfully harmed/arrested by SARS during and after these protests. This is a fund for the people by the people.”
