• The Grammy-nominted afropop star had in August 2020 promised to star Erica and Neo in the Onyeka music video after watching their expectational performance during Pepsi Turn Up Task in the Lockdown House.
Nigerian superstar musician, Burna Boy has probably failed to fulfill his promise to Big Brother Naija season 5 Lockdown reality television stars Neo and Erica.
It would be recalled that in August 2020, Burna Boy hinted on starring Erica and Neo in the official music video to the song, Onyeka, one of 15 tracks off his album, Twice As Tall.
The singer disclosed this after a fan asked him on Twitter if he watched Neo and Erica’s performance during Pepsi Turn Up Challenge in the Lockdown House.

In his response, the ‘Ye’ crooner stated that he might have to hit them up to star in Onyeka music video.
“They did! Might have to hit them up to star in Onyeka video 👀 🤔#PepsiBBNTurnUp #TWICEASTALL,” Burna Boy replied.
Now, the official music video was released on Friday, February 12 and there was no sight of the two BBNaija stars, even though there were just few people who reacted the day Burna boy announced the video is on the way.
A social media user identified as itzSochiLL asked Burna Boy if Erica and Neo are still to appear in the video, but no response from the singer.
“Hope Neo and Erica are in the video… I still remember your promise after their Pepsi performance… 🤔🤔,” the user asked.
