Nigerian music rave of the moment, Burna Boy’s comment about the streaming numbers, following his recent advise to artistes to snub international deals, is attracting a lot of negative reactions.
Report says that Burna Boy supposedly took a jab at top Nigerian singers saying that streaming numbers are not the reflection of a singer’s true worth or talent.
He shared on his Instastories,
“This streaming shit be making people feel like they are actually talented. If joke things like “Baby Shark” and “Gangnam Style” can do more number than everyone, don’t think you are talented or respected because of your streaming numbers. Everyone with real working brains know what is a joke and what is real. Anyway, plenty talk no dey full basket. Let time reveal all.”
His response has drawn criticisms across Twitter, especially with the indications that he is taking the jab at Wizkid, Davido and/or Mayorkun.
Infact, One angry Twitter user @itzbasito called Burna Boy a “hypocrite,” “insecure” and “fraud.”
“Burna Boy is a Motherfvcking hypocrite and an insecured fraud.
He should STFU and mind his bus.
