Nigerian afrobeats singer Burna Boy has made it clear that nobody paved the way for him in the afrobeats music lane, claims he is the best and brought his colleagues the respect they are currently enjoying.
The singer made it clears that everybody get his own lane and nobody paved way for him to get an easy ride, or else he should be the one that paved the way for them.
In a recent tweet posts by Burna Boy, he mentioned that he is the best Nigerian musician after the late Afrobeat icon Fela Kuti. A statement which did not sit well with some persons on Twitter who antagonised him bringing to his notice that many people paved the way for him. He then continued that some people paid money to get the west to like Afrobeat but he did that organically and brought respect to the genre.
