Damini Ogulu, Nigerian singer better known as Burna Boy, has provoked outrage on social media over his thinly-veiled dig at Davido who declared himself and Wizkid as the “two greatest musicians” in the country.
On Friday, Davido took to his Instagram page to share a photoshopped image of himself and Wizkid with the caption, “the 2 greatest of all time.”
Shortly after Davido’s declaration, the ‘African Giant’ crooner took to his Snapchat page to pen a cryptic message.
“You cannot play football, everybody knows you cannot play football and you are an embarrassment to the team but your daddy bought the football team,” he wrote, in a now-deleted post.
His comment has however sparked a plethora of criticism on social media platforms, especially Twitter, where users have since been expressing their annoyance.
“Dice Ailes was also born with a silver spoon, he didn’t rise to fame with the aid of his father’s wealth or influence, and mans been dropping steady hits, from Miracle to Dicey to Ella to Otedola Burna needs to check himself, his envious reasoning won’t move him forward,” a Twitter user said.
“Burna boy is that oversabi student who always wants to be recognized as being top of the class by dragging those at the top yet the class toppers, Balogun Wizkid, Adeleke Davido & consistent student Adedeji Olamide, keep relegating him cos they’ve sealed top spot,” another user said.
Here is what some Nigerians had to say:
If Burna Boy Made his comment because of Davido’s post, then it’s funny.
Everyone knows Davido’s dad tried to ruin his music career from the onset, Davido Hustled for everything he has today.

I really like Burna, but if he ever thinks that he is somehow somewhere close to the level of Davido and Wizkid then he needs to change his dealer. Jst bcos his girlfriend's connections are getting him international nominations doesn't mean he can disrespect his Elders.

I know Burna Boy is a Giant and that's why Davido is better. David will surely defeat Goliath…It's God's engineering.

Reekado bankz, Kizz Daniel, Small Doctor should be the ones Burna Boy should be comparing himself with. He’s no mate to Davido, Wizkid nor Olamide!
— Chemical Boy (@Chemicalboyy) May 22, 2020
You paid boys to beat Mr 2Kay
You quarreled with Mayorkun
You publicly embarrassed Reekardo Banks
You constantly undermine other Nigerian artist
Blamed Nigerian For not winning Grammy
Today you are throwing shades at Davido.
Even Fela no do reach Burna boy 😏
— STAN (@OBaStann) May 22, 2020

Because I'm a die hard Davido fan don't mean I won't speak the truth.
Burna is a son to Davido and #AGT is pure diamond and every single deserves a video.😄

Yes Burna is proud but davido has no right to say burna isn't his mate, dude was just 1step away from being greater than all Nigerian artiste put together
BTW davido has his own wahala, that's how he compared himself to wizkid initially until it was clear to all.#davidovsburna pic.twitter.com/vziQWa2OXX

Lmaaaao, someone said if Burna is an African Giant, Davido is David. Lmaaaaooooo.
— Patricia. (@kafui_komla) May 23, 2020
It's proven time and time again that Burna's fans are not as loyal to his personality as much as they are to his music. Even his fans will be putting him down every moment he brags. #odogwu pic.twitter.com/qEmUmmdRPH

Forget about Davido, Wizkid and Olamide.
Note to Burna Boy:
A proud man is always looking down on things and people; and, of course, as long as you are looking down, you cannot see something that is above you. Take note of this African Giant!

Being a burna fan is quite tough, every two weeks person go just come online see say e don do new nonsense
— Shirley (@jesuishirley) May 22, 2020
If I’m rich & my son wants to play ball with no talent. I will buy a club &pay Jose to drill him to stardom. Acquired talent. But he may still not make it if he doesn’t work hard. Leveraging privilege isn’t a crime. Even Burna leverages his grandfather’s history as Fela’s manager

If burna boy sign you. Forget, you can never be bigger than him.

Burna gradually becoming less 'African giant' and more 'village people'.
