‘I am big’ – Davido rubbishes competition with Wizkid, Burna Boy

Nigerian superstar artiste, David “Davido” Adeleke, has shut down the endless comparison between him and industry greats, Wizkid and Burna Boy.

The DMW boss stated that contrary to assumptions that he, Wiz, and Burna are currently the three biggest Afrobeats in the world, he is the only big Afrobeats artiste.

Davido affirms his legendary status

Davido made this statement when American media personality, Sway, questioned him about the competition in a recent episode of his show, Sway’s Universe.

Sway asked; “You are the African big 3 alongside Wizkid and Burna Boy. Do you feel like you guys are the big 3 Afrobeats artists on the planet?”

In response, Davido simply said; “I am big me.”

Meanwhile, in related news…

Nigerian Twitter Influencer, Daniel Regha asserted last year that Grammy-winning singer, Damini Ogulu aa Burna Boy should not be put in the same category with Olamide, Wizkid and Davido.

The social commentator said Burna is still an upcomer when compared to the three abovementioned artistes.

Regha made the statement while featuring on Doyin’s Corner hosted by Big Brother Naija star, Doyin David, noting that when OBO, Baddo and Machala were the hottest artistes on the scene, Burna was nowhere to be found.

He further said Olamide has more hit songs than most of them which is why he finds it funny when people mention Burna’s name before the YBNL founder.

Daniel Regha said there is a set for every musician in the industry and there are people who started buzzing at about the same time as the ‘Odogwu’, it just so happens that he became more successful.

The popular Twitter user further explained that the same way one would not put Tubaba in the same list with Wizkid and Davido, is also how the Last Last crooner is not in the same set as them.

Speaking on how big Burna is, Regha accredited it to streaming era, saying that if the popular singers from the past had come out now that streaming platforms exist, most of their songs would be hits.

He said; “Burna is still an upcomer compared to Wizkid, Davido and Olamide. When those artistes were popping, Burna was nowhere to be found…Burna is mostly popping now because he is in the streaming era.”
