"Burna Boy is a global star" - Osi Suave
Amidst the recent online shades and subtle jabs between Nigerian music stars Burna Boy and Davido, Legit.ng reached out to a popular radio personality, Osi Suave, to share his thoughts about the rivalry between both artists.
Osi noted in a chat who he thinks is a bigger star between both artists and if they were on the same level, he said:
"Burna Boy has indeed gained international recognition as a global star, but whether Davido is at the same level depends on various factors such as chart success, global reach, and critical acclaim."
Where will Davido sit at the 2024 Grammys?
Legit.ng recalls reporting when a video that showed the seating arrangements at the 2024 Grammy Awards went viral.
It stirred a lot of reactions online when it was revealed that Davido would sit very close to his arch-rival, Afro-fusion specialist Burna Boy.
Neither of the two Nigerian musicians had been on good terms for a long time.
