Yesterday, Burna Boy made a claim on Twitter, throwing the social media space into a arguments and chaos. Fans have been taking sides since then.
Burna Boy had tweeted yesterday: “FACT is I have always known I am the best.” Shunning a lot of Nigerian artistes and claiming no one paved way for him.
Most Nigerian artistes have been quiet since the statement, choosing the let the heat pass. And the few that has seemingly spoken have been sure to be careful, in giving a full response. But fans are reading into the innuendo as much as possible.
While Erigga was more explicit, saying Burna Boy can say what he wants, and that Nigerian artistes were perhaps secretly hoping Burna Boy does not win the Grammy, others like Adekunle Gold and Reekado Banks have tweeted simply without calling names. With Adekunle Gold tweeting during the debacle on Twitter a simple message: God is the greatest.
Reekado Banks has also tweeted his own implicit response. And fans as usual quickly latched and read into it.
Read fan reactions below. Burna Boy might just be watching.
