Kiddwaya, a Big Brother Naija contestant, caused discussion online when he said Burna Boy’s song helped outsiders understand Nigerian music.
The millionaire son says Afrobeats’ appreciation abroad on Twitter and said that Burna Boy’s Last Last made the music industry relevant.
A Twitter user named @iamnotfredrick responded to Kiddwaya’s tweet “All these people wey start to dey hear Nigeria songs around 2017 make una dey know wetin una dey talk, we go soon dey beat ourselves on top opinions.” @shodekeGbenga, “A Kid will always be a kid because they were never taught history. Even Burna will never say this. Pathetic!!!!” Ezeqwesiri, “lol These guys been jamming to Fela / 2baba/ Wiz … Love Nwantiti – Ckay… Davido – If and Fall and of course AKPI the GOAT 🐐 made us more popular” Dan, “This is the problem of Africans always trying to downplay others and give the glory to one person, is this really important, for me everyone of them contributed to the breakthrough including baba Fela, 2face and others who softened and watered the ground for Davido, Wizzy, Burna etc.”
