Burna Boy Silent Amid Steel Pulse’s Claims of Disrespect at Summer Jam Festival

News Americas, New York, NY, Weds. July 10, 2024: Burna Boy has so far chosen to remain silent as Steel Pulse’s David “Electric” Hinds claims his band was disrespected by the security and crew of the Grammy-winning Afrobeats star at the 37th Summer Jam Festival in Cologne, Germany.

In a social media post, Hinds detailed how Steel Pulse was allegedly mistreated. Tagging his band, Burna Boy, and the festival’s official page, he wrote that Burna Boy’s security team and crew tried to evict them from their dressing room to accommodate the African singer’s large entourage.

Hinds mentioned that original band member Selwyn Brown was furious, and the team stood their ground, shocked by the treatment of a band that has significantly contributed to Reggae music. He criticized the Summer Jam Festival organizers, demanding an explanation for the perceived bullying by Burna Boy’s team. He also questioned the decision to erect a barricade, splitting the dressing rooms and making them feel like prisoners.

Hinds concluded by warning Reggae festival organizers that such behavior from Burna Boy’s entourage should not be tolerated in the Reggae community, a genre that stands for peace, love, and unity.

As of now, neither Summer Jam nor Burna Boy has responded to the allegations.

Summer Jam 2024, held from July 5-7, headlined Burna Boy and featured top Jamaican acts like Skillibeng, Konshens, Busy Signal, Lila Ike, Beenieman, and Ky-Mani Marley, among others.
