In a recent statement, the media personality noted that the music industry used to be filled with singers from different parts of the country. Although he said he was not trying to claim tribalism, he added that now the popular singers are from the southwest.

In response to the media personality and singer, Black shared a post on his Instagram page, telling them why the popular singers are from the southwest.
Black explained that things are like that because the southwest makes better music. He also asked why no one is talking about the best footballers being from the east.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that popular Afro-fusion Nigerian star, Burna Boy, does not place any high importance on legends in the music industry. The singer made this clear in his recent tweets.
According to him, he is the best thing after Fela Kuti and he is the one responsible for the respect Nigerians currently enjoy. The Anybody crooner also said nobody paved the way for him.
He further stated that he learnt long ago from another singer, Timaya, that the world can live without the best.
Nigerians on social media reacted to Burna Boy’s tweets and many of them do not seem impressed by it. Many people described the singer as being arrogant and they rejoiced that he did not even win the Grammy he was nominated for.
