Burna Boy’s Controversial Remarks on Davido: Social Media Erupts in Response
In the latest twist of Nigerian music industry drama, Grammy-winning sensation Damini Ogulu, popularly known as Burna Boy, has sparked controversy with what appears to be a subtle dig at his fellow artist Davido, referring to him as a “joke.”
The incident unfolded when a Davido fan took to social media to taunt Burna Boy over his recent loss of four Grammy awards. The fan, sporting Davido’s image as their profile picture, derisively commented, “Ode, bottled four Grammys.” Burna Boy wasted no time in firing back, quipping, “The actual joke is in your display pic.”
However, Burna Boy’s response didn’t end there. After the fan changed their profile picture from Davido to Burna Boy, the latter decided to delete his comment. When questioned about this move by another fan, Burna Boy clarified that he did so because the troll had altered their display picture.
But the story didn’t stop there. In a subsequent exchange, a fan questioned Burna Boy’s decision to delete the comment. Burna Boy defended himself by highlighting the change in the profile picture, sarcastically asking, “Didn’t you notice the switch to my picture? Who’s the joke now?”
Despite the deletion of his comment, Burna Boy’s statement triggered a wave of backlash on social media. Users flooded platforms with various reactions, expressing a range of opinions on the matter.
@NuTyrant condemned Burna Boy’s actions as immature, suggesting that such behavior contributes to his continued classification as a newcomer in the industry.
@jah_boi drew attention to Burna Boy’s history of direct insults toward Davido since 2020, noting the preference of some fans for Burna Boy over Wizkid.
@Owiggy called out what they perceived as hypocrisy among Burna Boy’s fans, speculating on the differing response if Davido had made a similar comment.
The incident underscores the ongoing tensions and rivalries within the Nigerian music scene, igniting discussions and debates among fans and observers alike.
