Afrobeats and Dancehall star, Damini Ogulu, aka Burna Boy recently 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 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.”
