Nigerian Grammy nominated singer, Damini Ebunoluwa Ogulu, known professionally as Burna Boy,is currently a trending topic of discussion on Twitter.
The singer caught the attention of internet users on the platform after he shared a post on his Snapchat page; just moments after Davido came out to describe himself and colleague Wizkid as the greatest African superstars.
Burna Boy in a Snapchat post that has now been deleted said: “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.”
Although the ‘African Giant’ crooner did not mention any name, people easily deciphered the meaning, hence called him out on Twitter.
One Twitter user said: Burna Boy needs to accept that some people are better than him. Plenty people sef. Na so life be. And no be fight. Give it 5 years, a few fresh kids might ‘dethrone’ Davido and Wizkid. Life is turn by turn[SIC].
Another enraged fan, who took offence at Burna Boy’s post, said:
Burna subbing Davido about his father’s money is the same boy sampling Fela up & down. If he wants to test his mettle. Let him organize a free show & let Davido organize a show and charge 2,000 gate fee. We all know who’s gonna sell out despite the handicap. Who is Burna again?[SIC].

Burna Boy is like that friend that is good in his profession but hates seeing others in that profession excel. He knows fully well that the progress of others is not affecting his, but no, he will rather die than hate. First it was Mayorkun, now Davido. pic.twitter.com/JHaDdf9sfV
