I’m the best musician since Fela’ – Burna Boy boasts

In a recent tweet from the African giant crooner, Burna Boy. He boasts that he's the best in the Nigerian music scene after late legendary Fela Anikulapo-Kuti.

Burna, who was nominated for Grammys award but lost to Angelique Kodjo, said this on Wednesday night on his Twitter page.

“I always knew I am THE BEST. Everyone you think is the best knows I’m the best since Fela Kuti."

“But Timaya told me something a long time ago that made me not care about being the best. “The World can do without the Best” the world will still spin regardless."

He lamented the level of hypocrisy in the entertainment industry, adding that ‘the same people that wish you the best to your face are the same people that hope and pray you fail.

"The same people that wish you the best to your face are the same people that hope and pray you Fail so that they can feel better about themselves. That’s just Life.

“That’s why complements mean nothing to me because hate, Jealousy are sugar coated by them."

He further explained that he got where he is today by just sheer hard work, he emphasised that no one paved way for him. 

NOBODY paved shit for me. Everybody dey find them own. I have been 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.”
