Singer, Buju Changes Stage Name To ‘BNXN’, Pronounced As Benson

Nigerian musician, Daniel Benson who is better known as Buju or BNXN has released a statement to deny claims that he spat on a police officer.

Buju has written in a Twitter post on Wednesday that he spat on a police officer. He has since deleted the tweet.

In a volte-faced post shared on Thursday, August 18, Buju revealed he never spat on an officer, instead, he only engaged in an altercation with them.

My since-deleted tweet stating that I spat in a police officer’s face was an idiomatic expression to say I disrespected a police officer to his face and not the literal way people may have taken it on social media. I do not support violence or abuse against the police in any form,” he tweeted.

He continued;

Yesterday I was in a life-threatening situation which caused me to lash out due to the physical assault on me by some policemen who have now been brought to book. However, I just want to focus on what’s important to me, my music. Thank you for all the love and concern.”

Buju said he is happy that he stood up for himself during the altercation with the police.

I stood on my right as a responsible Nigerian, despite the violence against my person and I do not want my deleted tweet to be taken seriously. I appreciate the swift intervention of some reputable police officers on this matter too. Love,” he concluded.
