Burna Boy is no stranger to social media controversies as his latest sees the Nigerian twitter community coming for his neck.
Two weeks after losing the Grammy Award in the best world music category to Angelique Kidjo, The Afrobeat star has ignited a Twitter storm after declaring himself the best since Fela.
Burna Boy started his rants earlier by tweeting about people he perceived to be pretentious before making the declaration. How the tweets did not seem to go down well with Twitter users as many began to question where he had been all along before Afrobeats became a globally acclaimed genre.
While others pointed out that before Burna Boy, there had been Wizkid, Davido, D’banj, 2Baba and a host of others whose works have brought the global spotlight on Nigeria. However, Burna Boy in his reply believes every man was only working for himself and that it was his arrival to the scene that changed the global perspective of Nigeria.
“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.”
