Nigeria Singer and Grammy award winner, Burna Boy, has set tongues wagging as he claims he is not a Nigerian artiste but he is from Nigeria.
The singer made this confusing statement following a Twitter discussion about his achievements as an International artiste.
A Davido fan account identified as, A Better Time, coined from Davido’s album “A Better Time”, called Burnaboy an average star back in Nigeria and Africa at large.
He said of Burna during the discussion:
“He was just an average star back in Nigeria and Africa at large, more like an artist with prospects, unlike his peers who had to do it their own way from day one”.
One of Burna Boy’s fan slammed him and defended the singer. Reacting to this, Burna Boy told his fan to ignore him.
“Bro. Don’t get worked up. It’s Nigerian Twitter wiyh 2 delusional fanbases, trust me You are not talking to actual people if their handles look like that”.
A follower responded to the discussion saying Burna woul soon leave Twitter for Nigerians.
Burna replied to his tweet saying:
“Me wey no even be Nigerian artiste”.
A follower told him that he ia denying his motherland and Burna responded:” I’m from here and I live here because I love my home and my people. E no pass like that. I don’t make money from Nigeria. Na only cruise dey here”.
Another follower who was angry with his response slammed him, as he stated that the singer made money from Rivers State governor Woke during the homecoming ceremony following his Grammy win.
Burna denied this saying:
“Lol. I didn’t get a dime. Only the artists who honoured me by performing at my homecoming were paid. Get your facts right”.
