Meanwhile, in another news…

Nigerian Twitter Influencer, Daniel Regha says 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 the self-acclaimed African Giant still an upcomer when compared to his Nigerian counterparts.

Regha made the statement while featuring on Doyin’s Corner hosted by reality 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 Boy is, Regha accredited it to the 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.”
