Burna Boy, Nigerian singer, has denied claims in some quarters that he is competing with Wizkid, a fellow music star.


The ‘African Giant’ crooner spoke when he featured in a recent interview with DJ Whoo Kid, the American–Haitian hip hop disc jockey.

With numerous awards and recognition, the duo have pulled their weights in the global music landscape.

In March, both singers clinched their first-ever Grammy award. They were also nominated for the ‘Best International Act’ category at the 2021 edition of the BET Awards which was won by Burna Boy.


Their heroics have made them the subject of debate on several occasions with fans often arguing over which of them is the better artiste.

But speaking during the show, the ‘Ye’ singer said there is no rivalry between him and Wizkid.

Burna explained that the pair are two different artistes, noting that while he sings about real life, Wizkid mostly explores songs bordering on women.


The ‘Wonderful’ singer said the similarity between them has to do with their country of birth and the love they have for each other.

“No, we’re not competing. We are on two different lanes in life, you know? And the only similarity really, is the fact that we are from the same place and we love each other, you get me?” Burna Boy said.

“That’s what brings us together. It’s where we’re from and the love we have for each other. Other than that, we are on two different lanes… Wizkid is about the b*tches, You get me? I’m about real life and the b*tches…..”
