Popular Nigerian Instagram news platform, Instablog has come under intense scrutiny after falsely accusing self-acclaimed African Giant singer Burna Boy.
On Monday, August 26, the media platform speculated that the Nigerian recording artist had ended his relationship with girlfriend, Stefflon Don. They alleged that Burna left Stefflon for Gambian-born Ghanaian actress, Princess Shyngle.
The news spread like wildfire on Monday night and Burna was scrutinized on all social media platforms.
Stefflon Don has since debunked claims of Burna Boy cheating on her and also dumping her for Gambian actress, Princess Shyngle.
The reports were based on lyrics of some videos Stefflon Don has been sharing on her Insta-Story.
However reacting to the claims made, Stefflon Don stated that the videos are all old songs and shouldn’t be linked to any break-up. She further stated that she and her Nigerian superstar boyfriend, Burna Boy are good.
In another post, she shared a screenshot of the video call she had with Burna Boy.
See the photos below:
Stefflon Don then released a post on her Insta-story. She claimed the video of Princess Shyngle and Burna Boy was a long time ago.
She wrote, ‘OLD VIDEOS, Please let it rest. We are good over here’.
Since Stefflon confirmed her relationship with Burna Boy is still stable, Nigerians have dragged Instablog for publishing false news.
Read some of the tweets garnered from Twitter below:
Some Nigerian women are so bitter about other people's relationships. Burna and Steff don't even know of their existence. That's why it's easy for breakup rumours to fly cos they use it as an avenue to spew trash.
(Men are trash?) it’s ur bf nd instablog that is trash not us?

If instablog comes out to say God told them that rapture will come tomorrow, majority of you people will say it's True, just the same way you intensively masturbated to this Burna Boy infidelity jist.
