Burna Boy has given reasons why he was silent when the #EndSARS protest started last week, IgbereTV reports.

Nigerians took to Twitter last week to blast the singer for being ''silent'' on the protest.

In a series of tweets posted this evening, the singer said he was dealing with a personal family problem when the protests began. According to him, his mum had surgery last week and he had to focus his attention on her health.

He wrote:

"I was Dealing with a Personal Family issue at the Beginning of these Protests . My mum Had Serious Surgery last week! 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."

Why are all these celebs giving one excuse or the other for not being part of the protest?

To me, it is not necessary. I may choose to be a part of it or not be a part of it. it's my choice.

I don't even know what to say to the silly comments above me, honestly, a lot of mentally unbalanced people on Nairaland.

Burna, take all the time you want, you are not an elected or appointed government official; it's your prerogative to protest or otherwise.

Kudos to Burna Boy for looking after his mum, despite his situation he still made money available for billboards to be erected in many bus stops which sent a strong message to the authorities.
Just like in Catholic church, some are chosen to become priests who spread the gospel in distant lands as missionaries, others duty is to fund the priests and take care of those they are leaving behind at home, some provide funds to train seminarians and other Church activities.
Not everyone is expected on the streets and I commend BB for doing his part while taking care of Mama
