Beware of fake drinks in clubs – Nigerian artiste BNXN warns

Nigerian Afro-fusion singer, songwriter, and record producer Daniel Etiese Benson, known professionally as Bnxn and formerly known as Buju, has called out a lounge for selling him fake drinks at the same price as the authentic ones.

BNXN, in a series of posts on his X account on Sunday, stressed the importance of respecting his health and money, urging the lounge to deliver what customers pay for.

BNXN who didn’t disclose the name of the lounge warned that if it happened again, he’d take the microphone from the club’s hypeman to expose them.

He wrote, “Stop selling us fake drinks after spending so much money on the overpriced drinks. You’re killing us.”

“Respect my health. Respect my money. Give me what I pay for. If you don’t have it, don’t bring a fake one!”

“The next club or lounge that does this to me, I promise I will take that microphone from the hypeman and let you know!”

BNXN was introduced to Afropop through artists such as 2Baba as a child, and he credits Burna Boy as his inspiration for becoming a musical artist.

Just a few months ago, the 26-year-old singer buttressed Burna Boy’s controversial statement that most Nigerian artists make music without “substance.”

Speaking during an interview, Burna Boy sparked controversy after insinuating that Afrobeats is “literally nothing” and has no lyrical “substance.”

Reacting during an Instagram live session, BNXN said Burna Boy was on point, stressing that only a few of them (including himself and Burna Boy) make music with “proper substance.”

He said, “You see why I connect so much with Burna Boy is because he is so different,” BNXN said.

“When I listened to him and I listened to anyone else, you can just tell that he is doing his own thing. Same thing when you listen to me. Except you want to be whining yourself sha. What we are doing here, you can’t get it anywhere else. I promise you.”

“It’s only a few of us [artistes] that are real and doing this music thing with proper substance and having something to say in it.”

“The other day, I was watching the Burna interview, and I was wondering why everybody got him so misinterpreted. What you don’t understand will always confuse you. So, it’s okay.

“Personally, I didn’t have a problem with what he said o. The only issue there is that he failed to say he is also part of what we do [afrobeats].”
