In a video clip making the rounds on social media, the rapper said should apologise because Fela made it happen for him.
He said, “Burna Boy needs to apologize. At least, Fela made it happen for you. And you stole from Fela’s songs to become who you are. “You stole from Afrobeat to become who you are, even though Fela’s songs are strictly about messages that add value to the lives of people.”
On February 19, 2020, Burna Boy lost the Best Male International at BRIT Award 2020 to Grammy-winning American rapper, Tyler The Creator.
