I don't think Burna Boy should be in the hall of fame just yet

The question is, will any of the current crops of musicians be remembered 23 years after they are no more.

The rock and roll hall of fame is not just for rock and roll musicians. It is for any musician that have had a huge impact in music.

Wetin den dey look since all these days when he still dey alive, na now wey e don die dey con dey say den wan put am for hall of fame, As far as me I'm concern it's not worth it. Fela was and is still fame himself, if not for the way this country is, we are suppose to have FELA HALL OF FAME where will now be adding american singers inside, imagine fela competing with Mary j blige for hall of fame, c'mon, mary j blige should be under FELA HALL OF FAME. When did mary j blige starts singing?

You are meant to be a rock artiste, this rock and roll hall of fame is trash. I won't be shocked if someone like Chuck Berry isn't there rubbish.
