Biggest artiste in the world is Burna Boy – US rapper, Joe Budden

American rap star, Joe Budden has said that Nigerian Grammy-winning singer, Damini Ogulu professionally called Burna Boy is the biggest artiste in the world.

The media personality, in a recent episode Joe Budden Network podcast, said recognises Burna Boy’s status as a global music force but doesn’t appreciate him transferring the ownership of Jamaica-based artist, Byron Messia’s hit song ‘Talibans’ to himself after he was featured in the remix.

Joe Budden who was talking about the hit song, noted that even when Kenye West did something similar some years back, he was “vehemently against it.”

He said; “I’m never a fan of people transferring ownership of already existing songs to themselves after being featured in the remix. To the biggest artiste in the world [Burna Boy]. Yeah, I’m not a fan of when that happens

“If you made the hit, go work it. If Burna Boy is on it, that should be yours now. But I don’t know the business he [Byron Messia] and Burna Boy did. I never remember that going right for somebody. Designer and Kenye [West], I was vehemently against it.”

Meanwhile in another news…

CorrectNG recalls that the dancehall singer, Burna Boy, bemoaned not being respected enough by Nigerians.

He said his compatriots don’t believe he is on the same level as American music stars because of how he sounds.

Burna stated this in an interview with Los Angeles Times as he talked about how his countrymen often rate up-and-coming American rappers above him.

The singer said his forthcoming album “I Told Them…” is his flippant response to naysayers who have attempted to discredit him, both in the beginning of his career and now.

The self-styled “African Giant” said American songs used to dominate Nigerian media houses’ playlists but that has changed thanks to the explosion of afrobeats.

Burna Boy said; “To this day, there’s many Nigerians who can tell you an American rapper who just started their career, and they’ll say they’re bigger than Burna Boy. They don’t understand it. They’ll say, ‘There’s no way someone who talks like me, can even be on the same level as an American artist.”
