Burna retorted stating that nobody paved the way for him and revealed how African artistes pay just to make the western world like them. He also bragged that the respect that African artistes are getting right now is because of him.
He wrote: Lol. NOBODY paved shit for me. Everybody dey find them own. I bin Out here, if you knew the way they made us look weak by begging and paying the western world to like us you will see that no table was set and I’m the one that brought you the Respect you currently enjoy.
