I Did Not Burn Nigerian Currency – Orezi Claims After Backlash

After receiving a lot of backlash following the concept in his new photo/video , popular singer , Orezi has reacted.

Orezi was seen in a new photo released recently to promote his new single , ‘Born Broke Die Rich’ , burning a one thousand naira note. This did not go down well with many of his fans , as they took to his Instagram page to express their disgust , and calling the act an utter disrespect to Nigeria and it’s currency.

However , in a swift reaction , Orezi has claimed that he did not burn country’s legal tender , insisting that it was all a work of graphics.

“I never burnt the N1 , 000 note like people thought , it was just graphics; an edited picture. I did not burn the Nigerian currency. If you look at the picture ,

you would see that the fire almost got to my eyes.

If it were real , I would not have been able to withstand the heat. I cannot allow fire to burn my eyes because I want to take a picture. I replied some comments when people were criticising me because of the picture.

“I told them that it was an artistic paper and I did not burn the Nigerian currency. Why would I burn money to promote my music? A lot of my fans also tried to explain to those that were abusing me that it was an edited picture , but they would not listen.

Some people went as far as saying that they would arrest me because it is against the law , but I did not burn the money. It is not everything that you can explain to people; sometimes you just have to keep quiet” he said.
