Burna Boy denies claim DMW's Yonda, Peruzzi wrote some of his songs

Controversy has erupted over who the writers of Burna Boy's famous songs 'Dangote' and 'Pull up' are.

Influencer @ObongRoviel shared on Twitter that Burna Boys' famous songs ‘Dangote’ and ‘Pull up' were written by songwriters Yolanda and Peruzzi, who are signed to Davido's DMW record.

The post reads; "I bet you didn’t know Yonda wrote Dangote and Peruzzi wrote Pull up."

The Twitter user's comment would suggest some songwriters have been denied credits for their works.

He said, "Maybe when these artists start giving credits you will know the truth about your Faves."

Shortly after, the Award-winning musician Burna Boy responded to the claim thereby questioning @ObongRoviel, “Who wrote what for who???,” accompanied with a laughing emoji.

Below are some tweets reacting to @ObongRoviel’s tweet.

"You people should educate yourselves. Even great songwriters like Taylor Swift and Jon Bellion don't write their songs alone."

@youngskalo said:

"Burna acknowledged that Peruzzi actually wrote pull up for him."

@IDachem commented:

"Who cares? The people selling their songs were not threatened with a gun to their head. You people will just be ranting."
