Burna Boy: I’m the BEST since Fela Kuti

...The Best paved way for you - Twitter replies

Nigerian singer, Burna Boy almost broke the internet last night with a tweet that many are still arguing about on social media.

Burna wrote on his Twitter account that he is the best singer in Nigeria, since Fela Kuti. The Grammy nominee said even the best knows he is the best.

"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."

He tweeted apparently angered some of his followers, and one of them, @JezzyJoseph questioned his existence when Afrobeat was struggling to come to mainstream.He concluded by saying, ‘the best paved way for you.’

Burna did not it lightly and replied in a swift:

"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."
