I am the best after Fela Kuti- Burna Boy

Grammy-nominated artiste, Burna Boy, is being roasted on the internet after proclaiming himself as the greatest Nigerian musician ever after Afrobeat legend Fela Kuti.


Burna Boy gathered all the confidence on Wednesday night and took to Twitter to say “fact! I always know I was and I am the best. Everyone you think is the best knows I’m best since Fela Kuti.”

The tweet didn’t end there, it continued with: “But Timaya told me something a long time ago that made me not to care about being the best [because] the world can do without the best and the world will still spin regardless.”

The ‘African Giant’s’ statement didn’t sit well with some people, especially Nigerians who think Wizkid, Davido among others paved the way for him to attain the limelight.

One bothered Twitter fan, Jezzy Joseph, in a riposte asked Burna Boy where he was when Afrobeat was struggling to hit mainstream between 2010 to 2018.

He added that, “the best paved the way for you. You came in when the table has already been set and here you’re claiming the BEST since Fela.”

Jezzy provoked Burna Boy who came back to hit him hard:

“Lol. Nobody paved shit for me. Everybody dey find them own. I bin [sic] out here, if you knew the way they made us look weak by begging and paying the western world to like us you will see that no table was set and I’m the one that brought you the Respect you currently enjoy,” he said.
