Grammy nominee, the African Giant, Burna Boy has sensationally claimed he is the best and stated it as a fact.
The Ye hitmaker who is headed to Zimbabwe for a performance, courtesy of Kayse Entertainment, says everyone you think is the best knows that he is the best since Fela Kuti, the late Nigerian multi-instrumentalist, musician, composer, pioneer of the Afrobeat music genre and human rights activist.
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.

this of cause stired a lot of backlash from his fans who thought the artist is being too proud.
“I am ur fan no doubt, u are big and doing great but 4 being the best after Fela, I vehemently disagree , b4 u started pple laid the foundation of wat u are leveraging on today and bro those dudes were greater yet never bragged about being the best. I come in peace.” one fan replied.
Others though supported the artist.
There is none better than you right now… keep flying the flag high Burna. We are with you
