‘Burna Boy fake, very unoriginal, didn’t deserve to win Grammy’ – Brymo
Mavericks singer, Lawale Folfr, popularly known as Brymo, has described Grammy-winning musician Burna Boy as “sleazy, cheap, very unoriginal, and very fake”.
Speaking in a recent interview with TVC, the ‘Ara’ crooner also said that Burna Boy didn’t deserve to win the Grammy for his fifth studio album, ‘Twice As Tall,’ stressing that he lacks originality and most of his songs are samples.
He also called out Wizkid and Davido, describing them and Burna Boy as “thieves” who are stealing from Fela’s afrobeat sacrifices.
Brymo said, “I saw a video where he [Burna Boy] was saying that he was the Jesus of afrobeats. And he put Davido and Wizkid on some other mountains like that.
“I think he [Burna Boy] is sleazy, he is cheap, and he is a thief. Very unoriginal. Very fake. Every one of his songs is a sample or a stolen slogan. Who does that? And who awards you a Grammy for that?
“Afrobeats is a music style. It’s not a genre. Fela’s afrobeat is a genre. And it’s disrespectful that a new generation of musicians came and just added's'. And I tried to create another set of numbers: ‘Wizkid is the first. Davido Burna Boy…’ No, no, no. They are all thieves.
“Do you know how much struggle Baba [Fela] went through to create afrobeat? Anyways, I think it’s a whole big problem that we have.”
