“For all Davido’s hard work, in fact, nobody is as hardworking as him if you give him a song, he’s going to turn it into a jam, a hit, an anthem, he wants to jump on every trending song just so he can remain on the charts but one thing that will never change is that Burna Boy is the most talented Nigerian artist of his generation and people are pained because he’s a better performer, he’s a better singer. Probably Davido is the most influential artist in Africa, yes he has the numbers but the truth is people keep sh!tting on Burna a lot.”
