Brymo slams Burna Boy, Wizkid and Davido
He said Afrobeats is not a genre, and added Fela struggled to bring it to life. Brymo knocked Burna Boy for claiming Jesus of Afrobeats when, in fact, he "is a sleazy, cheap and unoriginal creative".
He argued that most of the self-acclaimed African Giant's songs are either samples of other people's songs or a stolen slogan and wondered how he got a Grammy.
