Burna Boy, the Grammy-winning Nigerian singer, has claimed he is richer than Wizkid and Davido.


The trio are considered to be the biggest artistes in Nigeria in contemporary times, with their fans often divided over who is superior.

Burna Boy earlier reignited the lingering superiority debate when he declared himself as the highest paid artiste in the history of African music.

His claim, however, did not sit well with many people, particularly fans of Davido and Wizkid.


Amid the dust trailing his comment, the ‘African Giant’ crooner called out his critics in an Instagram live session on Saturday.

“I don’t know why you think I’ll be joking when I said I am the highest paid, it’s not a joke, this is fact. Anyone wey e pain, go and get more money than me, work hard,” he boasted.

“I do know how much everyone makes that’s why I’m saying that. And if they do any disrespect, I’ll expose them, I don’t care.  Let’s get that clear, when I say combined, I’m not beating around the bush, everybody is included.”


Not satisfied with his claim, a fan had said “but Wizkid is richer than you.”

Responding, Burna Boy said: “No, he’s not but that is my man though.”

Another fan had also argued: “but Davido get money pass you” to which he replied: “how? how?”.
