2020 will always be remembered as the year Burna boy came very close to winning a Grammy. Unfortunately, he lost the award to his fairy Godmother, Angelique Kidjo.
It’s a fact that no new generation Afro-beats artist has ever gotten this close to the adorable gramophone, but is that enough reason to validate Burna boy’s claim that he is the best Nigerian Artist after the Legendary Fela Kuti? Who by the way, never got a nomination for a Grammy award? It was 6:54 pm Nigerian time two day to valentine 2020.
Twitter users were about their daily routine making savage comments and post. It was at that time that Burna boy thought he should share his thoughts on twitter. He started by tweeting “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 compliments mean nothing to me cuz hate, jealousy and ‘it should have been me’ are sugar-coated by them.” So, with that, we pose the question, Is Burna the best artist Nigerians have seen since Fela? Should we even use the world THE BEST?
