After compliments from Nigerians for Grammy nomination, Burna Boy says it means nothing to him

Afrobeat singer, Burna Boy has said that compliments mean nothing to him after he got loads of it for a Grammy nomination he got.

The singer made this known after receiving backlash for saying he's the best thing after Fela.

He had tweeted: "FACT! I always knew I was and I am THE BEST. Everyone you think is the best KNOWS I’m BEST since Fela Kuti. But @timayatimaya told me something a long time ago that made me not care about being the best. “The World can do without the Best” the world will still spin regardless".

His words didn't sit well with many Nigerians who lash out at him for forgetting that the Nigerian music industry still has the likes of Wizkid and Davido whom they say are better than him.

They also reminded him of how they supported him with compliments when his African Giant album got nominated for the Best World Music Album which he lost to Angelique Kidjo.

In response, Burna Boy tweeted: "The same people that wish you the best to your face are the same people that hope and pray you Fail so that they can feel better about themselves. That’s just Life. That’s why compliments mean nothing to me cuz hate, Jealousy and “it should have been me” are sugarcoated by them.
