Congratulating Burna Boy, Reno Omokri, the former presidential aide on New Media to Goodluck Ebele Jonathan said many Nigerians and the world in general never liked Burna Boy, adding Burna Boy liked himself and believed in himself.
“Let us be perfectly honest, many Nigerians never liked Burna Boy from the get go (be honest enough to admit it).
“The world also did not like Burna ab initio.
“You know who liked Burna? Burna! He liked and believed in himself.
“And when you like and believe in yourself, that self belief is so infectious, that others just can’t help but like you back.
“Learning to love yourself is still the greatest love of all.
“That is why Christ said ‘love your neighbour as yourself.
“Because if you don’t love yourself, you can’t love your neighbour or your neighbourhood, and they in turn, will not love you”, Reno said.
Reno Omokri also called on every Nigerian across the globe to celebrate Burna Boy and Wizkid for the Grammy award to paint Nigeria image in good light just the way foreign media presented Nigeria image negatively when FBI arrested Hushpupi and Obinwanne Okeke.
“I urge every Nigerian, in every part of the world to celebrate Burna Boy and Wizkid.
“Don’t say foolish things like ‘rest abeg’. Or ‘e Don do’. When the FBI arrested Hushpupi and Obinwanne Okeke, did you rest?
“Did the world rest? Did CNN rest? Did BBC rest? Was it not back to back negative coverage for weeks?
“Let us use these heroes to cancel out those villains.
“Increase their stock, because as you do so, you are also increasing your stock and adding respect to your green passport!”said Reno Omokri.
