Grammy-winning musician Damini “Burna Boy” Ogulu has been labeled as “the most uninspiring artiste” by Nigerian TV host Lerin Nicodemus.
This comes on the heels of his recent controversial statement that Afrobeats lacked “substance.”
Burna, according to Lerin, is the “biggest fraud” for latching on to Afrobeats to benefit in the global arena, only to reject the genre now that he has international fame.
The YouTuber called the musician a hypocrite for basing his brand on Pan-African activism, which he learned from Fela but does not practice anytime there is socio-political unrest in Nigeria or Africa.
She accused him of belittling people at every opportunity he gets, in comparison with his counterparts, Wizkid and Davido who promote Afrobeats and uplift upcoming artists.
“Burna Boy is the biggest fraud and most uninspiring artiste in Nigeria, his entire brand is built on Fela’s Pan Africanism but when there is a social activity, he either keeps quiet or mocks the people,” she said in a part.
