Burna Boy Was Asked To Choose Between Wizkid And Fela, You’d Love The Reply
US pop culture website Noisey had Burna Boy on their series The Noisey Questionnaire of Life. Inadvertently they let slip their lack of understanding of Nigerian music when they asked him to choose between Fela, Wizkid and Beenie Man.
Burna couldn’t hold himself back when he replied: ‘What kind of stupid question is that? Do I really have to answer? It’s even disrespectful to answer. Never ask that type of question again to anybody. When you say Fela Kuti ehn, just talk about Fela. Don’t explain how water entered the coconut. Just leave it how it is. You understand?’
We understand that it’s supposed to be tongue-in-cheek, but comparing Fela with Wizkid? Nah mehn! We’re with Burna Boy on this one.
Equally as hilarious was his reply when asked to choose between Fifth Harmony, Pussycat Dolls and Destiny’s Child.
‘What’s all that… What are the rest of them…? See I’m from Nigeria…you can’t ask me some kind of questions.’
As fellow Nigerians, we stand with Burna Boy. What is a Fifth Harmony?
