Grammy nominee, Burna Boy has courted controversy after claiming in a tweet that he’s the best to ever to come out of the entertainment industry in Nigeria since Late legendary singer and Activist, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti.

Burna Boy who lost out in winning an award at the 2020 Grammys, had earlier tweeted this:

“FACT! I always knew I was and I am THE BEST. Everyone you think is the best KNOWS I’m BEST since Fela Kuti. But @timayatimaya told me something a long time ago that made me not care about being the best. “The World can do without the Best” the world will still spin regardless.”
