“D’Banj, P-Square, Davido, Wizkid Paid & Begged The Westerners To Like & Accept Us” – Burna Boy

Olabimpe O | - Leave A Comment

Grammy-nominated singer, Burna Boy has again bragged about being the African singer to pave the way for other artistes.

The singer made the headlines when he took to Twitter to brag about being the best after Afrobeats king, Fela Kuti. His statement had tongues wagging and a certain user identified as Joseph questioned the singer on his whereabouts when Afrobeat was struggling to hit mainstream. Joseph added that the best paved the way for him to hit it big.

He wrote: “Where Were you since 2010-2018? I mean where the fuck are you when Afrobeat was struggling to hit the mainstream? The BEST paved the way for you. You came In when the table has already been set and here you’re claiming the BEST since Fela

Burna retorted stating that nobody paved the way for him and revealed how African artistes pay just to make the western world like them. He also bragged that the respect that African artistes are getting right now is because of him.

He wrote: Lol. NOBODY paved shit for me. Everybody dey find them own. I bin Out here, if you knew the way they made us look weak by begging and paying the western world to like us you will see that no table was set and I’m the one that brought you the Respect you currently enjoy.

    The writer just want traffic for this site… Burnaboy never mentioned any name.

    The focus of the discussion is simple … Why is Burnaboy thanking Kanye West coz Ye?

    You guys should be objective when writing headlines/ storyline

    Seriously he did not mention names so y’all should stop hating.. He made it to the Grammy, so what he has every right to say what he wants and y’all should go and read his reply again

    Burna boy is allowing pride to get to his head it is true where was he when they made other musicians to recognise that there is Nigerian music
    Tekno davido wizkid you don’t see them talking trash like this
    Wizkid ojuelegba was a massive hit even in that side rihanna danced to it drake remixed it bcus they felt the vibe
    Buenable shud use his brain pls

  32. Avatar

    Whatever it is,its damn wrong to underate your colleagues mostly when there wasn’t any real beef
    He hasn’t pulled shows nor concerts as those mentioned he’s better than. Of a truth with no beef,technically,musically and vocally he’s better than the names he mentioned but then not in germs terns of a break through. Dbanj,davido and WizKid gave us real access and breakthrough after the very legend tubaba featured r-kelly(flex) remix. So this is mere arrogance and pride. Not good for now because this brings beef. Possibly he fears non of them based on one side!!!

    I have never liked this guy though I wasn’t happy when he didn’t win the Grammy and Kidjo did. I don’t like him because his music sound the same and I have always known that he is weak in character since I first heard his interview long ago.Someone nobody knew 3/ 4 years ago and has started behaving like gutter that he is.I have never heard any Nigerian hip- hop/ afrobeats artiste or any Nigerian musician talk shits about him because they felt they needed to show love to one another but only him has being throwing shits,mud at his senior colleagues, yes he his still junior.That guy needs to grow up.Lots don’t like him and I certainly don’t.Even if I tune in the radio and his music turn up I change station.I don’t have his CD,mp3 or 4 and I’m happy in my household none like his flow.He should continue the way he is going.He shouldn’t change so he can see the result.

    You people should stop mentioning West or Yoruba in this matter. Remove sentiment please. Even him, Burnaboy, almost everything about him is Yoruba. Please, leave West/Yoruba out of this.

    Burna is a big fool, for those of you saying he didn’t mention anyone that tooxclusive mentioned, which other people is munu burna boy talking about before? Thank God he lost the Grammy because he didn’t deserve to be there in the first place album that is filled with copyright songs fireboy album shit on African giant. He said these other artists make us look weak to the Westerners and they pay and beg them to accept us so you dry there wen them dey beg for the record Dbanj brought most of these international recognition and it was kenye west that came for him he didn’t beg for that so shut up and grow up Remove fela from your music and you are just another artist.
    You are not even in top ten greatest naija Artist because Time Will tell how long you can stand the test of time as for your music am not downloading any shit you drop again for disrespecting your elders. Idiot

    Wow, personally I don’t like his kind of songs but he is good and I enjoyed some of his songs even if they are one pattern . To me he hasn’t even done what WizKid and davido has done in music industry fuck the fact he was nominated in Grammy award ,he has been relevant just two years what about WizKid and davido that has been since 2011 and some legends like tu face , p square and some others .he has pride as a person how long does he think this kind of songs we rain in Nigeria , others have come and go let’s see if this one will not go too that time I will see if he will still be relevant the way he is now .

    This guy deserve nothing than slap, his song never rich anywhere in the world. When Nigeria have the opportunity to win Grammy is 2012 by the d’banj Oliver twist but we Nigerian did not pay serious antention to him. His top chat in UK which no Nigeria artist never rich till now.
