Popular Nigerian singer Burna boy who recently got a Grammy nomination has incurred the wrath of his country men with a statement he recently made on twitter which they consider as an abomination.
In a tweet the one time Grammy nominee stated emphatically that he is the best in Nigeria musically and anyone who is best also knows he best after Fela Kuti-a late Nigerian musician. After he made this tweet, majority of Nigerian music lovers got furious and have descended heavily on him for saying he is better than the likes of Davido, Wizkid, Naira Marley and others.
Many have labelled him as boastful who thinks he has seen it all. Others even thanked God Burna boy never won the Grammy because he is proud and arrogant.
After incurring the wrath of Nigerians, he didn’t keep shut but continued to spew words that will make Nigerians angry. He stated that he is the only artist who has been able to bring respect to Nigeria.
Do you think its right for an artist who gets his support from his country men to talk this way?

And this is not hate, if Burna Boy had won the Grammy, he would have told his crew and everyone around him to always lie down so he can walk on them. Relax boy, humility is everything. Learn from D'banj and co.— Wale Adetona (@iSlimfit) February 12, 2020
