Burna Boy: "I'm Not A Nigerian Artiste. I Don’t Make Money From Nigeria" by nwekeugochukwu: 6:17pm On May 18
Nigerian singer and Grammy Award winner, Burna Boy has stated via his Twitter handle that he is not a Nigerian artist because he doesn't make his money from Nigeria, IgbereTV reports.

He stated this while reacting to a discussion about his achievements as an international artist.

A fan of Davido on Twitter with the username, "A Better Time", made the following statement about Burna Boy during the conversation:

"He was *just an average star back in Nigeria and Africa at large, more like an artist with prospects, unlike his peers who had to do it on their own from day one."

A fan of Burna then defended the Grammy-award winner and Burna tweeted, telling his fan to ignore the "delusional fanbases."

Burna wrote:

"Bro. Don’t get worked up. It’s Nigerian Twitter with 2 delusional fanbases, trust me You are not talking to actual people if their handles look like that."
https://twitter.com/burnaboy/status/1394647405346402308?s=20

A follower responded to the discussion, saying Burna will soon leave Twitter Nigeria for Nigerians.

And Burna replied:

"Me wey no even be Nigerian artist."

When a follower told Burna that he's denying his motherland and Burna responded:

"I’m from here and I live here because I love my home and my people, E no pass like that. I don’t make money from Nigeria. Na only cruise dey here."

Another follower retorted, telling Burna that he made money from Rivers State governor Wike during the homecoming ceremony organized for him in Rivers state.

Burna denied this, writing:

"Lol. I didn’t get a dime. Only the artists who honoured me by performing at my homecoming were paid. Get your facts right."

In as much as the gains of Marijuana outweighs the ills, It is still a lethal herb that can distort reasoning, common sense, dressing and communication.

Dumbo. The fact that your grandpa managed Fela and your mum fvcks Fela doesn't make you greater than any adeleke

Adeleke and Davido's family conquered Politics providing governors and senators

They conquered Nigerian energy sector with omotosho plant and Pacific energy

They are one of the biggest tertiary education scholarship sponsors

Their company in Atlanta services the whole world

If you have a family that loves you, a roof over your head and a warm meal, you’re actually doing better than you think.

Without Nigerians you're not an artist!

Your music/career will not survive outside Africa.

Forget the Grammy you got!

I've never liked this thug.

He looks unkempt, disheveled, and brash.

His arrogance isn't also helping his looks.
