Grammy-nominated Afrobeat singer Burna Boy hailed himself as the best Nigerian musician after the legendary Fela Kuti.
Taking to his verified Twitter handle, the self-acclaimed African Giant said that he had always known that he was ‘the best’, adding that every other person thought to be the best knew he was actually the best.
Shortly after Burna’s tweet, the Nigerian Twitter space went into flames with reactions to the “Ye” crooner’s tweet.
While some attacked the singer for appearing to have disrespected his older colleagues, others backed his claim.
Reacting to one of the fans who insisted that the Grammy nominee was not the best but that the best paved the way for him to shine, Burna Boy maintained that nobody paved way for him.

You are a big fan of Zlatan Ibrahimović and his arrogance on and off the pitch but it becomes a big problem to you when Burna exhibits such. 🤡🤡🤡

Burna boy can only be mentioned if it’s about artists that have been delivering for like 3 years ago.

And this is not hate, if Burna Boy had won the Grammy, he would have told his crew and everyone around him to always lie down so he can walk on them. Relax boy, humility is everything. Learn from D'banj and co.

Where Burna Boy will get me angry is when he will say he’s the BEST thing that has come out of Nigeria, better than bread and beans. I will be pissed 😡

Burna’s actually the BEST . It’s a FACT Burna shldnt be saying though . And to be fair , in my opinion, Eazi has done / is doing a lot for the culture and he doesn’t even get a quarter of the credit he deserves
