After Declaring Himslef ‘Best’ Next To ‘Fela’, Why Is Burna Boy Now Bowing To ‘Wizkid’?

After Declaring Himslef ‘Best’ Next To ‘Fela’, Why Is Burna Boy Now Bowing To ‘Wizkid’? 1

Why would an artiste who claimed to be the best after Fela, the godfather of Afrobeat, hype someone considered to be the messiah of Afrobeats like a king? Does this make any sense? or does Burna Boy want something?

Let’s take a trip down memory lane, shall we? Burna made the headlines a few months ago when he bragged about being the artiste to pave the way for other artistes. He clearly and boldly stated that he was the best after Fela and that the respect other artistes are getting from the westerners is because of his hard work and determination. The man is basically saying he opened doors for everyone.

Lol. NOBODY paved shit for me. Everybody dey find them own. I bin Out here, if you knew the way they made us look weak by begging and paying the western world to like us you will see that no table was set and I’m the one that brought you the Respect you currently enjoy.

Try to remember your reaction to this statement? Were you angered? Excited or neutral? Burna Boy really caused chaos with this statement as music lovers took to social media to bash him. He even lost followers in the process as some fans couldn’t bear to stand a singer with such narcissist behavior-  Burna literally became the most hated artiste overnight.

Wizkid FC were particularly upset and expressed disappointment in the singer. According to them,  Wizkid is the one true artiste who paved the way for Afrobeats and that fact is unarguable. They even considered the singer the next after Wizkid but with his announcement, many felt he was letting his Grammy nod and other international achievements get into his head.

However, yesterday night, Burna Boy did something exceptionally remarkable. He hyped Wizkid before and after his battle against Jamaican singer, Vybez Kartel and even called out his girlfriend, Stefflon Don for supporting the Jamaican singer. Burna also admitted to Wizkid’s debut album ‘Superstar‘ has been the Best so far with great Hits, if he was aware of this why did he disregard Wizkid at first with the saying, No one paved way for me… and Am the best after Fela.

It is no news that the two singers share a special bond as they consider each other brothers but we can’t help but feel that Burna Boy might be up to something.

Why would someone who claims to be the best after Afrobeat King Fela, praise someone like Wizkid like a king? Is this just a strategy to get on the good side of ex fans or Wizkid fans because of his forthcoming album/project?, Add to his army for a stronger force or just get some attention?

I may be wrong though but I can’t shake off this feeling that Burna Boy has something up on his sleeves. Is this just a display of brotherly love or all just for clout? What do ya’ll think?

A 200 level medical student from Bayelsa State, who identified herself as Eva has recounted how she miraculously received healing from alleged Monkey Pox disease at Christ Mercyland Deliverance Ministry, a church founded and pastored by billionaire prophet Jeremiah Fufeyin.
The strange disease, which had already paralyzed her academic activities had left pox all over her body as she was bed ridden from one hospitals to other orthodox medical centers.
Recounting her story, Eva said she noticed the illness after waking up to strange discharge from her body, which eventually developed into pox.

“Since I got admitted to school, I have been facing challenges. I only managed to finish my first year. On a fateful day, I woke up and started seeing pox develop across my body. I rushed to the mirror and noticed that my face had turned to something else.
I called my mum immediately. I felt it would disappear but it got worse by day. We started going to different hospitals but the situation did not get better. At some point my mum couldn’t cope any longer with the bills,” Eva said.

She said she was ridden to church by her mother and a sister and got noticed after several days.
Eva said: “Everything changed the moment Prophet Jeremiah Fufeyin spotted me in the congregation. I was surprised how he saw me. “Although I was doubting in my mind, he prayed and sprinkle water and asked me to work. I didn’t believe I would walk. I was doubting but everything changed when I started walking forward.
A video of the healing seen on the internet showed how the man of God prayed for her. The lady was totally healed and had recovered when she was sharing her testimony in the video.
This is indeed a paradox and a prove that God is alive.
