We all did something sweet for Burna, for him not to rate is an absurdity.
Check and Balance, Yawa Dey were not hits when they came out, they were only songs for stoners. Ye

Burna Boy's Vibe is original and can't be remixed. Haven't you noticed people barely do covers of Burna's songs? Its cos if you do that you'd make yourself look stupid cos you'll definitely sound wack. Only Burna can do what he does but arrogance has always been his undoing.

Arrogance is Burna Boy's media personae.

Donald Trump etc.

Nigeria never loved Burna from the beginning.
He was barely supported by the industry but man stuck to his game plan. You might hate him but he's BETTER than your fave when it comes to quality music so you don't expect him to kiss your ass
#Burna , the best since 2BABA

Nobody supported Burna boy when he was struggling. I repeat Nobody! Burna kept on doing his thing even when y'all wasn't listening until God came through for him. Everything he said is true! Y'all just hating cos you don't like hearing the truth!
