Nobody: …

 

Absolutely Nobody: …

 

Burna Boy: I am the best since…

 

Twitter Nigerian: [email protected]#k … ):

 

Nigerian Afro-fusion sensation Damini Ogulu popularly known as Burna Boy has sparked outrage on social media for declaring himself the best in the country music industry since Afrobeat legend Fela Kuti.

 

In a post shared via his twitter, the Grammy award nominee also said he didn’t care about being the best because “the world can do without the best.”

 

 

 

The ‘Ye’ crooner also claimed he brought respect to the Afrobeat genre while others were begging for mainstream recognition.

 

 

 

This claim by the self-acclaimed African Giant has not gone unnoticed and many Nigerians on social media are coming out to give their 2 Kobo on the matter.

 

Some outrightly called him proud and arrogant.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Some others believe there is nothing wrong in what he has said.

 

 

 

 

And because a part of the conversation touched on the foundations of music in the country, CoolFM's Do2dtun reminded us of previous work done by some 'OGs'.

 

 

 

Some brought up his back and forth on social media and advised his phone be collected from him. 

 

 

 

 

Any man who must say, "I am the King", is no true king.

And someone suggested that this might just be another publicity stunt, similar to the events that led to his African Giant brouhaha
