Burna Boy took to Twitter to give an insight into his journey to stardom as he restated that he is the best after Nigerian music legend, Fela Kuti.
The singer disclosed that he stopped caring about being the best after Timaya told him that “the world can do without the best”.
Burna Boy tweeted: “FACT! I always knew I was and I am THE BEST. Everyone you think is the best KNOWS I’m BEST since Fela Kuti. But @timayatimaya told me something a long time ago that made me not care about being the best. “The World can do without the Best” the world will still spin regardless.”
When asked where he was when afrobeat was “crawling” between 2010-2018, Burna Boy affirmed that nobody paved the way for him.
He added that Nigerian singers were begging and paying the western world for their songs to be heard before he brought Africans the respect they now have.
He wrote: “Lol. NOBODY paved shit for me. Everybody dey find them own. I bin Out here, if you knew the way they made us look weak by begging and paying the western world to like us you will see that no table was set and I’m the one that brought you the Respect you currently enjoy.”
