Proverbially, just like the Agama Lizard will say with its head always raised high, “If they don’t praise me, I will praise myself”.
Burna Boy has decided to take on the act of an Agama Lizard by praising himself in public glare.
Is it just praises, NO!
He lashed his fellow Nigerian artiste too.
The “African Giant” called out other Nigerian artiste, warning them to stop being pretentious, as he claims to be the best Nigerian artiste since Fela Anikulapo Kuti.
Calling other artistes, jealous, that they pretend they love him but prays he fails so they can feel better about themselves, Burna rants and rants.
His words are too deep to explain in our words.
See for yourself.
After the lashing came the self-extollation.
Burna Boy, stated as we quote inter-alia:
“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.”
Is that all? No!
Burna boy further added salt to injury by throwing shits at Nigerian artistes faces saying that he brought the respect that they enjoy now.
But did it just end here, No too!
Reactions has trailed this rant of Burna as a “Jazzyofficial” on social media has called him out too, saying he will forever be a “second” in the Afrobeat world as Fela did the paving for him.
“Where were you from 2010-2018? I mean where the f**k are you when Afrobeat was struggling to hit the mainstream? The BEST paved the way for you. You came In when the table has already been set and here you’re claiming the BEST since Fela.”
Following this, reactions in various shades have been splashed on the post of Burna boy.
Social media is awashed.
Away from that, come to think of it, who do you think Burna boy is referring to in his first post.
Who in particular?
Nevertheless, the after Grammy Burna boy is clearly taking an “I don’t care” posture as the “African Giant” has indirectly conveyed that he is in his own world now.
But, reason with us, is this act of his, a relic of pride or humility?
As in, is it even bad to praise one’s self?
What about the lashes spewed in ranting?
Why you wait for it, put down your thoughts about this in the comment section.
