Burna Boy has thrown shade at Nigerian artistes, saying that there is no other artiste who does Afrobeat like late Fela did.

He spoke during an interview on Radar Radio.


While he was referred to as the ‘King of Afrobeat,’ Burna Boy corrected the journalist by stating that he makes Afrofusion music and not Afrobeat.

Admitting that a lot of other Nigerian artistes will see themselves as Afrobeat singers, he stated that only Fela Kuti does Afrobeat as far as he is concerned.
