Afro-pop star, Burna Boy has taken a huge swipe at African artistes who celebrate the streaming numbers of their songs.
The ‘Dangote’ crooner pointed out that when African artistes see their streaming numbers, they feel they are talented. But he believes this is just a farce.
The person perceived to be targeted in Burna Boy’s statement is Yemi Alade, who celebrated on Instagram that her song featuring Rick Ross was gaining a lot of views.
Burma Boy wrote on his timeline:
“This streaming shit be making people think they’re actually talented. If joke tings like “Baby shark” and “Gangnam style” can do more numbers than everyone.
Don’t think you are Talented or Respected cuz of your Streaming numbers. Everyone with real working brains knows what is a Joke and what is real. Anyway, plenty talk no Dey full basket. Let Time reveal All.”
