Burna Boy in trouble with Nigerian music fans



Burna Boy has once again found himself in the news for wrong reasons, after a recent interview he was featured in, spilled into the public space.

The African Giant, as Burna Boy is sometimes referred to, in an interview with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe in New York, claimed that most Nigerian songs lacked substance, and that Nigeria artists talk about nothing in their songs.

“90 percent of them (Nigerian musicians) have no real life experiences which is why most of Nigerian music or African music or Afrobeats as people call it, is mostly about nothing, literally nothing. “

“There is no substance to it like, nobody is talking about anything in it. it is just a great time. It’s an amazing time. But at the end of the day, life is not an amazing time. No matter how nice of a time you are having now or you had at some point or you plan to have, you are still going to face life.” Burna Boy had declared in the interview.

On social media, many people didn’t waste time in letting Burna Boy know that he needed to slow down on creating bad images about other Nigerian musical artists, and painting himself as the messiah of Nigeria music.

On Instagram he got most of the knocks, as even lovers of his music felt his recent interview was one off the rails.

It should be recalled that Burna Boy won’t be the first Nigerian artist to shade his colleagues this year, as Davido earlier this year, classified Burna Boy and some other artists as ‘new cats ‘ in the entertainment industry.
