Some Nigerian social media users are calling out popular Instagram blog, Instablog 9ja over its report on the alleged breakup between Burna Boy and his English girlfriend Stefflon Don.
The blog had reported on Monday that the singer was cheating to Stefflon with his ex-girlfriend Princess Shyngle and also posted a video of the duo together allegedly having a good time in Lagos.
The report swiftly went viral with many Nigerians condemning Burna Boy for cheating on the UK rapper.
Stefflon, however, shared a video on her IG page later on Monday night to clear the air on the alleged breakup.
WuzupNigeria reports that in the IG post she said everything is going fine between her and Burna Boy.
Following Stefflon’s reaction to the allegation, social media users didn’t spare Instablog as they took to Twitter to drag and lambaste the platform.
The backlash against Instablog was torrential, with a lot of Twitter users calling the blog a purveyor of fake news.
Some users also alleged that the report may have been sponsored by Shyngle to cause problem between her ex-boyfriend and his new beau.
See the reactions:
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🙄

Instablog is the bearer of bad news, the page flourishes because people like bad news, so Burna and Steff are still dating. Wow, please where are those girls that said Men are Scum? It is your boyfriend that is scum.

This Burna & Steff palava is proof that Instablog has intentionally caused plenty unnecessary rifts in the entertainment industry.
That’s how they started unnecessary beef between Davido & Wizkid until the young Kings were wise enough to come together and kill it!

Nigerians need to stop being dumb for once !! Its so clear Shyngle paid Instablog to make that post about Burnaboy & Steff London just to get attention for her new youtube show , and y’all are just falling for it . We need to smart in this country for once.

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.
