- Burna Boy had on many occasions claimed he does not get the kind of respect he deserves from Nigerians and that his treatment by his countrymen borders on hate.
Grammy award winner, Damini Ogulu, better known as Burna Boy, has doubled down on his assertion that he is hated by some people in the music industry.
Recall that Burna Boy had on many occasions claimed he does not get the kind of respect he deserves from Nigerians and that his treatment by his countrymen borders on hate.
In ‘Thank You’, a track from his recent album, ‘I Told Them,’ he insinuated that he was not being appreciated enough despite making the country proud.
He also claimed that Nigerians chose to spread rumours that his mother was one of the dancers of the late Afrobeat pioneer, Fela Kuti.
There have also been insinuations that the absence of a baby mama in his life, unlike many of his contemporaries, might be due to impotency.
However, the Afrobeats sensation on Sunday disclosed why he’s hated by his pwers.
In a post via X, the Afrobeats superstar said he was hated by his “inferiors” for having no “superiors.”
Sharing a photo of himself, the 32-year-old singer wrote, “Hated by my inferiors for having no superiors.”
Burna Boy came to limelight in 2012 after releasing “Like to Party”, the lead single from his debut studio album L.I.F.E.
In 2017, he signed with Bad Habit/Atlantic Records in the United States and Warner Music Group internationally.
His third studio album Outside (2018) marked his major-label debut.
He is widely regarded as one of the most influential African artists of all time.
