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?

Spotify underlines commitment to African music with latest RADAR additions 17

Spotify has underlined its commitment to bringing African music to the world’s ears with the addition of six of the continent’s brightest emerging stars to its RADAR Programme. Among the latest additions to the career-advancing programme are Nigerian artists Ayra StarrVictony, and BNXN.

Spotify Radar

Launched in 2020, RADAR is a programme designed to support emerging artists by helping them to have their music discovered on a global platform and deepen their connection to exciting new audiences across all stages of their careers. The programme offers artists support in a number of areas, including integrated marketing, playlisting, and editorials.

Joining the Nigerian artists in the latest cohort to be added to the RADAR programme are South African DJ and producer DBN GOGO, Kenyan Hip Hop duo Buruklyn Boyz, and Ghanaian musician Black Sherif. Previous African artists to have benefitted from participation in the RADAR programme include Elaine, Rapper Willy Cardiac, Nigerian R&B singer Tems, and AmaPiano star Focalistic.

“Given how much of an impact the RADAR programme’s already had on the African artists who’ve participated in it to date, we’re thrilled to be able to introduce a fresh cohort of artists and expand the programme,” says Phiona Okumu, Head of Music, Spotify Africa. “The six artists added to the programme are exceptional talents and we look forward to providing them with resources that will help them elevate their careers and gain thousands of new fans around the globe.

For DBN GOGO, the inclusion in the programme is a validation of the years of hard work she’s put into becoming a professional musician.

“The artist and DJ I am today was made by a lot of long hours of ferocity, determination, and tears,” she says.

That said, she’s determined to use the RADAR programme as an opportunity to learn and grow as an artist.

“There’s still a lot more I can do and learn, and I have a willingness to learn new things and adapt,” she says, adding that she’s hopeful that her presence on the programme will help her achieve her goal of taking African music to a global audience.

In addition to the on-platform support that RADAR offers African artists, it also provides off-platform support in the shape of shows and events highlighting artists selected for the programme.

RADAR’s artist selection is informed by a combination of data and editorial decision making, with each local team being given the autonomy to choose the artist who makes sense for their region. Spotify will always be an instrumental driver in African artists entering the world stage and reaching audiences outside of their home markets. RADAR will continue to help emerging artists increase their streams and introduce them to audiences they may otherwise not have been able to discover.
