Grammy nominated singer and self acclaimed African Giant, Damini Ebunoluwa Ogulu, popularly known as Burna Boy has come for popular and highly celebrated singer, David Adeleke aka Davido.
This is coming after Davido announced that his album will be released in July.
Slamming him, Burna Boy took to his snapchat account and wrote;
“July will be very funny, and I shall laugh accordingly”
“You cannot play football, everybody knows you cannot play football and you are an embarrassment to the team but your daddy bought the football team.”
Recall with NobleReporters that, Davido earlier took to his social media pages to post a photo with Wizkid and tagged it; “The 2 greatest of all time ! No 🧢” . Could this have been what triggered Burna Boy?
Burna Boy and Davido are now currently trending on Twitter Naija and people have been reacting to the shade which they say is for Davido.
British rapper, Stephanie Victoria Allen also known as Stefflon Don, has asked why there have been more reported cases of black people who have died as coronavirus pandemic continues to hit the world.
There are reports that the black people are the highest hit of the deadly virus than other races.
According to Los Angeles Times, black and Latino Californians ages 18 to 64 are dying more frequently of COVID-19 than their white and Asian counterparts, as shown in a Times analysis of state health department data.
In reaction, Stefflon Don wondered if anyone could give a scientific explanation to the disease as she is confused about whether to go along with what is been shown in the news or to fight for answers.
Hurtin’ Me crooner and Burna boy‘s girlfriend wrote: “Can someone explain the scientific reason on why ‘Black” people are dying of Covid-19 more? Or we are just going to run with the news. With no explanation?”
Nigerians took to their social pages to slam African Giant – Burna Boy for saying they deserve any bad thing that happens to them as they do not hold their leaders accountable enough.
The Odogwu singer added that Nigerians should use the same energy they used in reporting Funke Akindele for holding a house party, to hold politicians accountable for their actions.
According to the popular opinions making the round on Twitter, Burna Boy is wrong for saying Nigerians, who drag their politicians every chance they get, don’t do that enough. According to Nigerians on Twitter, Burna Boy does not use his platform as much as he should for positive activism as they believe he should. His attitude of superiority, according to many stirred from being compared to the legendary Fela, who without the help of social media, criticized the government and public figures during his time.
Nigerians online pushed #EndSARS, Nigerians online pushed bank reforms, We pushed for #LockdownLagos and asked govt to close all borders.
Pls where was Burna?
Can anyone tell me ONE positive activism Burna has ever done with his huge platform?
"I'm not saying what burna boy said is wrong" Oga shut up. what burna said is wrong on all levels. we drag FG everyday here, end sars, not too young to run, reform police, etc. burna boy has never jumped on any of these campaign and he's yarning okoto. African giant without sense
Nigerian Grammy Nominee, Bura Boy has revealed his decision to drop an Album this year.
He made this known in a Question & Answer session with fans on social media yesterday.
The Q&A session was controversial though. Some gbas gbos occurred between him and Reekado Banks, a warning to Ceeza Milli and WizKid FC.
Oops!! by the way he praised WizKid though) but most importantly guys, there is a new Burna Boy album coming!
When he was asked how he felt losing the Grammy Awards, Burna Boy said he felt sick for loosing but because Anglique Kidjo already educated him on Grammy Awards, he now feels “Twice As Tall“, exactly the name of his forthcoming album to be released in July.
Burna Boy took some time off his self-isolation to do a questions and answer (Q&A)session with fans on Twitter. This comes after Burna Boy had voiced his frustration at the limitation of his movement on March 27, 2020.
During the Q&A, he spoke about Wizkid, Fela, early days, new album in 2020 and ‘Odogwu (Remix)’ featuring Phyno, Zoro, Illbliss and Nigga Raw.
Nonetheless, something dramatic happened when Burna Boy replied a fan who told Burna Boy that, “With all this fela songs yhu dey drop back to back shior.”
Burna Boy who had obviously had enough bit back and replied, “The Fools that say this shit don’t even really know Fela songs. Fela went through much more hate from you fuckers than I currently do and all he did was speak the truth even more than I do. U are just pained that I’m King and I’m Flawless with the vibes. Unstoppable.”
Singer Burna Boy has said that it is not his job to help people and make their lives better as Nigerians battle coronavirus outbreak.
The singer stated this in reaction to a troll who slammed him on social media after he said he wanted to go live on Instagram.
The troll said: “We don’t need you to go here. Go back to your community and do something meaning fort hen during this period of coronavirus”.
Burna Boy responded saying: “Even though I do my best as many as I can (and I urge everyone who can to do the same), the fact that I do does not mean it’s my job. That is the government’s job not mine. So don’t come here to advice me, advice your government and see if they will answer you”.

Former Big Brother Naija housemate, Gifty Powers has slammed the Nigerian government while praising Ghana.
She opined that Ghana should be called the Giant of Africa, and not Nigeria.
She said this as she shared a screenshot of an article stating that “Kolkota International Airport is Africa’s best and most improved airport.”
Gifty then wrote: “Honestly ehn, Ghana should be called the giant of Africa, because they make good use with their heads and not with their belly/selfish interest.
“Every country does politics (corruption), I get it, Ghana hides theirs but Nigeria opens theirs like say na we own the Galaxy, say nothing fit happen. Like say na we own “ODESHI”. No respect at all. SMH.
“Why can’t our government for once just forget about their stomachs and f***ing put things straight in this country.
“It’s annoying when i see people, especially foreigners, talking good about some African countries, and when Nigeria is mentioned in the topic, they’ll be like, ‘hell nooo, not Nigeria. You people scam all the time’… It’s f***ing annoying.”
She added: “Person wey dey steal regularly no dey tell person say e dey thief. He tells people that he is a business man.
“Make we dey hide our yansh small naa. Imagine a whole giant of Africa is banned from entering USA. SMH. Kpele ooo we really do have a long way to go.”
Damini Ogulu, Nigerian Afrofusion sensation better known as Burna Boy, says comparison between him and Fela Kuti, Afrobeat legend, is not honourable.
The award-winning singer disclosed this while speaking with GQ, a New York-based men’s magazine, where he reflected on his music career so far.
Burna Boy recently caused a stir on social media when he described himself as the best in the country’s music industry since Fela.
Many including, Seun Kuti, son of the late music legend, had aimed digs at the ‘Ye’ crooner, noting such comment was uncalled for.
But in the recent interview, the 28-year-old music superstar resisted the comparison with Fela, saying it makes him feel “weird”.
He that noted the late music icon was his inspiration while growing up, adding that there wouldn’t have been him without people like Fela.
“I don’t think anybody in their right mind would compare me to Fela,” he said.
“Fela is my inspiration and my childhood hero, so if you think comparing me to Fela is honorable, it’s actually not.
“It actually makes me feel weird. Fela was Fela, and if it wasn’t for Fela, there probably wouldn’t be any me, so I don’t understand the comparison.”
The ‘African Giant’ crooner also reflected on the controversies that trailed the cancellation of his trip to South Africa for the ‘Africa Unite’ concert during the heat of the xenophobic attacks in the country.
He pointed out that his rants on the issue was borne out of his passion for a united Africa, adding that the continent needs to wake up towards building a peaceful atmosphere.
“It’s all just very f*cked-up and twisted, and I wish to God that it wasn’t so, but it is, and all I can do is try and do my part to change it, no matter how small that part is,” he said.
“It’s almost as if the oppressors have won when the oppressed start acting like this. Do you understand? My family is in Africa, which is why you will hear me speaking on the South Africa issue, which is why it strikes a nerve.
“It’s almost like having your whole body, and your hand is not working. That’s what it feels like… Everybody should wake the f*ck up. South Africa and the whole of Africa needs to wake the f*ck up.”
Nigerian Grammy-nominated artiste, Damini Ogulu also known as Burna Boy has disclosed that sitting for interviews makes him very uncomfortable more than going on a tour.
The singer made this known in an interview with Nigerian-American entertainment journalist Lola Ogunnaike, where she sheds new light on the often reserved artist, his Grammy nomination, among other issues.
The story, entitled “Burna Boy, Global Giant” which featured in the latest issue of GQ magazine also sees the African Giant addressing hopes for a united Africa, comparisons to the Nigerian legend Fela Kuti, and touches on the comments he made last year about refusing to perform in South Africa following a spate of xenophobic attacks in the country.
According to Ogunnaike, she had been warned that Burna isn’t a fan of Interview, and he didn’t prove her wrong.
“Initially his answers are terse, his eye contact scarce, his wariness palpable. Baus and Burna’s music-label publicist, who have insisted on being present throughout our entire discussion, shift awkwardly in their seats. If Burna’s intention is to make us all uncomfortable, he has succeeded,” Lola Ogunnaike wrote about Burna Boy’s demeanor during the interview.
Burna Boy later explained during the course of the interview that he finds Interviews stressful.
“It’s not that I hate interviews,” he told Lola Ogunnaike, “It’s just that I find them stressful. I find them more stressful than going on tour. Because most of the questions you all ask are very direct, simple questions. But then I answer simply, and then you’re waiting for the rest like there’s supposed to be a rest of the answer when there really isn’t.”
He also disclosed that he was in Paris for the tour of his album, “African Giant” when he received the news that he had been nominated for the Grammy awards.
“My uncle ran into my hotel room screaming that I was nominated. We were all so happy,” he shared.
Speaking about comparisons between him and the iconic Nigerian musician Fela Kuti, Burna said, “Fela is my inspiration and my childhood hero, so if you think comparing me to Fela is honourable, it’s actually not. It actually makes me feel weird. Fela was Fela, and if it wasn’t for Fela, there probably wouldn’t be any me, so I don’t understand the comparison.”
Burna Boy also addressed the comments he made last year about refusing to perform in South Africa following a spate of xenophobic attacks in the country, which led to the cancellation of the ‘Africans Unite’ concert, which he was set to headline.
“It’s all just very fucked-up and twisted, and I wish to God that it wasn’t so, but it is, and all I can do is try and do my part to change it, no matter how small that part is. It’s almost as if the oppressors have won when the oppressed start acting like this.
“My family is Africa, which is why you will hear me speaking on the South Africa issue, which is why it strikes a nerve. It’s almost like having your whole body, and your hand is not working. That’s what it feels like.
“There’s too much going on in the world for everybody to just care about being fucking rich and fucking Instagram-clouded; everybody can’t be that. The more of that there is, the more the world suffers, and what’s important just goes down the drain and the downward spiral continues. It’s even accelerated. Now is the time. Everybody should wake the fuck up. South Africa and the whole of Africa needs to wake the fuck up.”
On Uniting Africa with Music: “The reason for everything I do and how I do it is for one goal and one goal only, and that’s the eventual unity of Africa. One day we’ll have one passport, one African currency, one Africa. Then and only then will my mission be complete.
“But that’s why I’m going to keep on fighting for it, and that’s why I’m going to keep pushing this message in my music. Because I want my children and their children to be proud to be African, to own a part of Africa. What I don’t want is for my children to still feel like foreigners in their own home.”
