Grammy Nominee, Burna Boy says he’s the ‘best since Fela’ , Nigerians.

Nigerian Singer and African Giant, Burna Boy, got himself and a host of other big names in the music industry trending after he sent a tweet out claiming he’s the best to ever do it since Late Legendary Singer and Activist, Fela Anikulapo-kuti.

Burna Boy who lost out in winning an award at the 2020 Grammys, had earlier tweeted this

FACT! I always knew I was and I am THE BEST. Everyone you think is the best KNOWS I’m BEST since Fela Kuti. But @timayatimaya 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.

Everything Burna Boy said is FACT ! and applies to every industry and sect of life . When you are winning among a range of people doing the same thing , you should know only you & God truly has your back . The same people that cheer you might stir the soup that would kill you .
