Grammy award winning Nigerian musician, Burna Boy often divides opinions online and while his frustrations are sometimes understandable, his rants can be considered a tad exaggerated at times. But that’s basically what we’ve come to know about social media posts.

Burna went on tweeting spree on Tuesday, May 2021, going as far as alleging he is not an indigenous musician. It all started when the Grammy winner received a shout of from British musician Kners, who reminded his followers of his unwavering belief in the Nigerian musician and that Burna’s success has come as a result of hard work, determination, and resilience.

However, trust Nigerians to have their own counter-opinions. When it comes to music on Nollywood, there are of course, two major fanbases on Twitter- Wizkid’s and that of Davido. If you’ve been a frequenter on Twitter, you’d have stumbled upon one or more hilarious threads about who’s the best musician in Nigeria. According to verdicts from most debates, Wizkid and Davido are hilariously often considered first tier, while Burna ranks just below them.

Nonetheless, Kners was seemingly trying to prove to the responders who questioned Burna’s achievements, saying the foundations were already laid for his success, but Burna didn’t want him expelling all that energy unnecessarily. So he replied Kners.

Burna Boy on Twitter: “Bro. Don’t get worked up. It’s Nigerian Twitter with 2 delusional fanbases, trust me You are not talking to actual people if their handles look like that. https://t.co/rIyMiPTWax / Twitter”

However, it didn’t end there as it seemed the Kilometre singer was in the mood to catch some trips. Burna hilariously replied to a fan who alleged the singer would be leaving Nigerian Twitter for his doubters, saying he’s not even a Nigerian musician with two laughing emojis accompanying the tweet.

In another reply to a disgruntled Twitter user who accused the singer of using Nigeria and Africa to move his trade, Burna insisted he doesn’t get most of his revenue locally, something only he can attest to, at least for now.

Burna Boy on Twitter: “I’m from here and I live here because I love my home and my people, E no pass like that. I don’t make money from Nigeria. Na only cruise dey here. https://t.co/szpomnHHO1 / Twitter”

In another tweet, the 29-year-old once again reiterated he did not receive money to appear at his homecoming ceremony following his Grammy win. His mother and part-time manager, Bose Ogulu was the first reveal that information in a recent interview with TV host, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu. You can find the full details here.

Burna Boy on Twitter: “Lol. I didn’t get a dime. Only the artists who honoured me by performing at my homecoming were paid. Get your facts right. https://t.co/9ip2SCjdGA / Twitter”

It’s not certain whether some of Burna’s iterations- like not being a Nigerian artiste are genuine or mere jokes. However, the singer spends quite a lot of time here in Nigeria has lots of fans and believers who value his craft and hold his personality at apex esteem as far as Afrofusion is concerned.
