Burna Boy is currently receiving the bashing of his career on Twitter.
On February 12, 2020, Burna Boy caused a stir on social media when he declared himself the best after Afrobeats King, Fela Kuti. The Grammy nominated singer bragged that he paved the way for artistes and is the main reason why they are respected by the westerners today.
Nigerians reacted by taking to their respective Twitter accounts to bash the singer for claiming to be the best after Fela. Burna has been labeled as proud and rude to have made such a statement. According to them, he is ignoring the hard work that the likes of Seun & Femi Kuti, Wizkid, Davido, D’banj, 2face, Olamide, and Psquare have put in just for Afrobeats to be recognized in the western world.
Here are the some of the tweets;
Immediately we finished hyping his sold out concert, spirit of sise sise just entered Burna Boy. He has been acting like a possessed dude ever since then. Trash talking as if he fell from heaven. Have you ever seen a king ruled forever? Only God Almighty is infallible. Calm down!

This whole Burna boy thing just made me understand how the people in jesus's time must have felt when he said he's the son of God when there were prophets before him.

I don’t have a problem with you tweeting whatever you want about this Burna boy issue, but don’t say his songs are not nice because that’s a big lie!
