American rapper Rick Ross has replaced Burna Boy at the Afro Nation in Puerto Rico after Burna pulled out of his scheduled performance at the 2022 AfroNation Festival.
The singer announced his withdrawal from the festival on his Instagram handle on Thursday, stating that he wouldn’t be able to make it to the festival due to circumstances beyond his control.
“I am extremely gutted that I wouldn’t be at the AfroNation Festival in Puerto Rico, due to circumstances beyond anyone’s control.
I will make it all to you all for sure! Love Damini.”
Hours after the disappointing announcement, the organisers of Afro Nation Puerto Rico made a statement announcing that Rick Ross will be replacing the “Twice as Tall” singer.
Afro Nation wrote: “Yesterday we were informed by Burna Boy’s team that it was impossible for him to make it to Puerto Rico for his performance at ANPR2022.
“We have spent the last 24 hours attempting to secure a replacement and are hugely thankful to Rick Ross for stepping in at the last minute to deliver you an incredible show.”
Rick Ross graced the stage with his hit song ‘Ima Boss’.
The Afro Nation Festival in Puerto Rico kicked off from Thursday, March 24, 2022, to Saturday, March 26, 2022, and featured Davido, PSquare, Olamide, Omah Lay, Ckay and so on.
