The Africa Giant, Burna Boy, has responded to the criticism he has received as a result of his choice to shave his beards.
Burna Boy has responded to those who have attacked his choice to chop off his trademark beards.
The musician had uploaded a photo on his Instagram account revealing his decision to cut his beards.
His new look drew a lot of attention from Nigerians on social media, who thought he looked much better with the beards than without.
The Singer responded by urging his supporters to love him for who he is, not what he looks like, in an Instagram post on Sunday.
He stated in his statement that he does not want people to appreciate him for superficial reasons such as money or his signature beards or dreadlocks.
He also urged them not to push him to further cut his entire hair off.
On Sunday, October 24th, 2021, he posted this on his Instagram story.

Burna Boy’s signature look has always been a thick beard and a large lock of hair. This has always been his distinguishing feature.
Although he did not take off his distinctive dreadlocks, he does appear to be a different person without facial hair and beards.
Sharing his response to the recent criticism of his shaved beards via Instagram, Burna Boy threatened to also let go of the dreadlocks. He wrote;
“I love you all too but don’t make me cut the hair on my head too.
“If you love me for my hair, beards or some sh*t I bought with money then that’s great. Anybody can buy anything including beards. Stop building your life on conditional love.
“Build on family and those who have shown no sign of potential disloyalty. Build on talent, build on God”
