Burna Spits On Twitter, Wizkid Fans React
Burna Spits On Twitter, Wizkid Fans React: Recently, Nigeria’s bragging rights went through the roof as their top Afrobeat acts, Burna Boy and Wizkid both clinched the much coveted Grammy Awards. Burna Boy won a Grammy for his album, Twice As Tall while Wizkid won for his collaboration with Beyonce on the track, “Brown Skin Girl“. Nigerians celebrated with them and interestingly, Burna Boy was quite subtle about the award in the first few days. However, it didn’t take long for us to get our Burna back. The viciously blunt, outspoken, and straightforward Burna Boy.
In his recent tweets, Burna boy has come out to rant about his grammy winnings and he believes those who prayed for him not to win, were fools. Of course, Burna boy wasn’t at all shy to say these words, he stated his opinions clearly, without mincing words. The tweets clearly express his anger and perhaps vengeful attitude that has become a “gloating and mocking session”.
Burna seemed to have been referring to those who wished that he didn’t win the award as fools while also subtly gloating about his award and how significant his “will” to win was instrumental in his winning.
This wasn’t his only tweet, though he had initially given all glory to God, saying that “God is indeed not a man“. What then follows seemed to have been an insult for all those who never shared his dream.
What got some Nigerians on Twitter wasn’t his initial tweet which preached self-belief and consistency, what got them was his tweet where he claims that he “did it on his own“. An immediate response to this tweet, said “No one does it alone” a tweet from a Twitter user which seemed to have been advised from an honest fan.
People have since linked the tweet to Wizkid, claiming that Burna was perhaps talking about Wizkid when he claimed that “he did it on his own”. Since Burna boy won the grammy award alone through his album, and Wizkid Won in affiliation with Beyoncé, people have assumed that this is an insult to Wizkid’s name.
Trust Wizkid fans to immediately come for the singer while bringing in conversations anywhere they call him ” a snake” in a series of tweets and replies. Of course, we can’t be sure Burna boy’s tweet was in any way about Wizkid not winning the Grammys alone but if there is anything we have learned from Twitter, it is that Wizkid fans will never joke with what looks like an insult to their favorite singer.
