Uti Nwachukwu has written in defence of Burnaboy after the Grammy nominee was called out for saying no one asides his family and Fela Anikulapo-Kuti paved the way for him.
Reacting to the backlash Burnaboy received for his statement, Uti tweeted a day ago asking Nigerians to put respect on Burna’s name. He added that Nigerians should thank Burnaboy for putting respect on Nigeria’s name internationally.
The Big Brother Africa star took to Instagram today to reiterate this.
He wrote on Instagram:
If Burna says he is the Greatest, ask yourself why you are offended for his positive declaration if you’re not a Witch!!!
If he says nobody paved The way for him apart from Fela, why would you even question or fault that statement?!! Are you in the entertainment industry ??? Do you What it’s like out here ??? •
Any small thing pride pride pride !! Forgetting that if his music was shit or if he wasn’t successful , most of yall wont even pay attention to him in The first place Most of you just want people to blow as long as u are in control or feel responsible for their success
FYI He didn’t call no names so he didn’t put anyone down!! And If you have ever said amen in church when pastors pray : “you’d be first amongst your equals! You will be No 1 and always be the first choice “….. and u have a problem with his declaration, THEN YOU ARE A BIG HYPOCRITE!
I repeat! PUT SOME RESPECT ON BURNA’s NAME
Below are the tweets UTI shared on the matter a day ago.
