Is Burna Boy Now The The Greatest Nigerian Music Artiste Alive?

Taiwo Oluwafemi | - Leave A Comment

Burna Boy got nominated for the 62nd Grammy award yesterday with his “African Giant” album entering the “World Music Album” category and since then, there has been opinions about him now taking up the position of the biggest Afrobeat artiste in Nigeria.

The tag of the biggest artiste in Nigeria is being sent the way of Burna Boy. Although that has been happening ever since he had a massive 2018. There are a lot of people that believe he has flown past the level of Davido and Wizkid in terms of his musical influence and the fan base he commands in the country. This notion however has been countered by many as they believe he is still yet to get to the level of Davido and Wiz.

But there could now be a strong claim to Burna’s dominance over David and Wiz after his latest achievement which is the Grammy nomination.

It has always been the dream of every music lover that a Nigerian music artiste one day gets a nod at the Grammy awards. That dream has however turned reality via Burna Boy as his “African Giant” album sits comfortably in the nomination category for “World Music Album” for next year’s Grammy award ceremony and this definitely has now re-opened talks about him being the greatest Nigerian artiste alive right now.

Davido and Wizkid used to be Nigeria’s biggest hopes for the Grammy, but Burna takes away that hope from them as he gets nominated. For this reason, we have decided to ask you guys if the Grammy nomination now means that Burna is ahead of both Wizkid and Davido. Has he overtaken them to become the greatest Nigerian music artiste alive?

    Because he got nominated for a Grammy right? Sunny Add, Femi and Seun Kuti have also been nominated in the past. Stop been petty OK. Awards aren’t the only criteria for measuring an artist worth.

    IF he eventually wins he will be the greatest and the first home base Nigerian to win it . Grammy is a big deal . It’s the highest musical award on earth

    I have always thought burna boy is a far better artist than wiz and davido…but those other guys have had it good with managements like Eme backing wiz and OBO’s HKN that has been pumped with enough cash to sky rocket them into the limelight…go back and listen to his hits back in the days …songs like like to party…tonight…run my race …won da mo…pre mee…check and balance…and so on…burna has always been the better artist in terms of lyrics and delivery…it just took the right team of management to make him shine…and that’s why most of y’all think he is just blowing up…and the Grammy nomination is prove to back that claim

    I keep seeing comment about how an award doesn’t make a great artist! how can someone possibly think that? do you think if his album has consist of dumb song it would have been nominated?? so yes, he went mainstream last year the impressive thing was he didn’t have to rub shoulders with Drake or meek Mill to gain it… he did it him self and now his bigger than both Wizkid and davido, he command respect for himself and for Africa entirely, he doesn’t dick ride.

    Hottest at the moment but not the greatest alive. ?

    Burna Boy is definitely number 1 at the moment, but make no mistake Wizkid and Davido are the greatest artist in Africa. Could he overtake them in time? Definitely, but he isn’t on their level just yet.

    He has produced hits ,he makes great music ,but will he be able to keep the flow like davido and wizkid have been doing it for the past years , we can’t compare him with them, let’s give him time then we will know.if he is consistent for 7 years plus like wizkid and davido then we will crown him

    We Nigerians should appreciate what we have, every musician has his own season, this is Burna boy’s season. Whizkid and Davido has been making us proud and will still do more so as others , but this is Burna boy’s time. He is too talented and his style is unique , he got nice lyrics. For now he is unarguably the biggest star in Africa.
