Grammy Award nominee, Burna Boy is being tongue-lashed on social media for blowing his own trumpet.

He claimed to be the best after the afrobeat legend, Fela Anikulapo Kuti and clearly stated that no one paved the way for him. This tweet has got Nigerians on Twitter channelling their energy towards making sure Burna Boy finds his statement wrong and pompous.

A twitter user who took it upon himself to fight for older artistes in the industry, asked where he was when afrobeat was “crawling” between 2010-2018. In response, Burna Boy claimed that nobody paved the way for him. He added that Nigerian singers were begging and paying the western world for their songs to be heard before he brought Africans the respect they now have.
