Burna Boy

By Jennifer Okundia

In a tweet, Burna Boy said he has always known that he is the best since Fela Kuti and that everyone knows that. A follower then asked him where he has been from 2010-2018, and that he came in when the table has been set, also that those in the industry paved the way for the ‘Ye’ crooner, the singer said nothing like that happened and he found his lane by himself.

OluwaBurna, as he is sometimes called while replying to the follower, disclosed that those before him made Africans look weak because they begged and paid the Westerners to like us.

See the exchange…


Burna Boy’s African Giant’ album was nominated for a Grammy award in the World Music Album category in 2020 but lost to 59-year-old Beninese singer-songwriter Angelique Kidjo whose album “Celia” won the Best Contemporary World Music award.
