Rapper Erigga says many Nigerian musicians were happy Burna Boy did not win the grammy.
Burna who sparked off controversy yesterday, claimed he paved the way for himself as no one did anything for him.
He lost the nomination in the world music category to Beninios legend, Angelique Kidjo.
Burna was attacked by a fan when he 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”.
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. https://t.co/oPS1HjPrEl
