Nigerian Singer Doesn’t Like How Small His Name Is On Coachella Poster—So People Fixed It For Him 😂

Childish Gambino, Tame Impala and Ariana Grande will headline this year’s Coachella festival at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California in April 2019.

But one artist is not happy with how he appears on the bill.

Shortly after the line-up was announced, Nigerian singer Burna Boy complained on Instagram that his name was “so small” on the festival poster, urging them to “fix tings quick please”.

He said:

“I really appreciate you. But I don’t appreciate the way my name is written so small on your bill.”

“I am an African giant and will not be reduced to whatever that tiny writing means.”

Here is a copy of the poster.

Can you find Burna Boy’s name?

Here’s a hint. Burna Boy appears on Sunday’s line-up.

After the comments went viral, some Twitter users then took the opportunity to make jokes, Photoshopping his name to look enormous.

Meanwhile, others went even further—putting him in every single slot on the bill.

Many, however, backed Burna Boy, who has more than two million Instagram followers and grew up in London before finding huge success in Africa with his breakthrough hit “Like to Party.”

JJ Omujuwa tweeted the singer, whose real name is Damini Ogulu, was making a wider point about the esteem in which African culture is held in the west.

Adonai Jonathan tweeted:

“Burna said ‘I’m an African giant’ not ‘I am the only African giant’. But because you don’t like him, you feel the need to come online to bash him.”

Despite his relatively low billing, fans of the singer still managed to find his name in its tiny font, and are undeniably excited for his performance.

But some thought Burna Boy should be grateful for the opportunity then make sure his name was bigger next time based on an amazing performance at the festival.

And some fans pointed out that other artists’ names were printed even smaller.

The event is held in California on two consecutive three-day weekends in April with identical line-ups.

Other names appearing at the festival are Janelle Monae, The 1975, Solange and Aphex Twin.
