On Saturday, 2 May 2020, the REACH project which is a NPO in Nigeria revealed distributing food parcels to one of the local communities most affected by the restrictions put on the country due to the global Coronavirus pandemic. The team posted their efforts and thanked Odogwu musician, Burna Boy for his donation that made the charity run possible. The caption revealed that Burna Boy was the primary sponsor that made the day’s outreach possible.

In response to the touching post Burna retweeted the post in a show of humility which he is not for thanked the organisation for their work writing, “No! Thank you for your hard work and persistence.” But the comments on the post were not from social media users commending Burna Boy for his acts of benevolence; on the contrary the comments questioned whether the person typing was even him.
Many of the comments rehashed his previous statement that he will no longer handle his Twitter account and handed it over to his management team. The proclamation came after his headlining Twar with South African rapper, AKA during the 2019 violent unrest in AKA’s homeland. The fight between two of leading African artists had polarised South Africans and Nigerians.
