Burna Boy Declares Himself Godfather Of Nigerian Music

Grammy-award-winning Nigerian singer, Damini Ogulu, better known as Burna Boy has sparked debate on who is the biggest artiste in Nigeria once again, with his bold claim on the remix of the viral South African song, ‘Tshwala Bam’ by TitoM and Yuppe.

Burna Boy disclosed in the opening verse of the remix, which was released last week, that he is the godfather of the Nigerian music industry.

In his song, he says; “As long as Naija la wa…Then they call me the Godfather.”


Burna Boy has been very vocal about being the leader of the Nigerian music industry.

He sparked controversy years back after declaring himself the “blueprint” of the Nigerian music industry following his Grammy win.

However, his colleague Davido has also laid claim to Afrobeats’ leadership in the past.

On a track titled ‘Godfather’ in his fourth studio album, ‘Timeless’, Davido asserted himself as the godfather of the Nigerian music industry.
