Singer Orezi has denied burning the Nigerian currency. This week, the singer released a new single ''Born Broke Die Rich'' and the artwork used for the promotion of the single was a burning naira note. Orezi has now said it is nothing but artwork and he never burnt the Nigerian currency. Speaking to Saturday Beats, the singer that said he will be releasing more than enough songs this year said;

“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”.
