The Burnaboy twitter meltdown looks like it’s not going down anytime soon, as different angles to the conversations keep surfacing every time.
So the backstory is this, sometime last week the Grammy-nominated artiste shared a lot of opinions via his twitter about being the best thing since Fela. This did not go down well with Nigerians who rushed at him for his arrogant outburst and disrespect towards those that came before him.
And now Veteran musician, Eedris Abdulkareem has come out in an interview to share his opinions on the controversy that Burnaboy stirred on social media about paving the way for the Nigerian music Industry.
In an interview with TVC’s “Entertainment Splash”, Eedris expressed that Burna Boy needs to apologize because Fela made it happen for him. He spilled further that the “African Giant” stole lots of Fela’s song to fame.
Eedris reacted to Burna’s claims saying he sampled most of Fela’s song which was very notable for the messages it communicated with relevance to existing situations.
Slamming Burnaboy further, he shared that most of his songs hold no value and content, whereas Fela’s was riddled with wisdom and the need to create social consciousness.
Concluding, Eedris advised Burna to apologize for his outburst and also give credit to the late singer, as it was a disrespect to all the efforts at pioneering African and Nigerian sounds equipped with value to enrich people.
