“Right now, I think Rema is one of the greatest musicians ever on earth. I’m very proud of where it [Nigerian music] is. I know that we are in safe hands. Our great-grandkids are good because of what is already happening.”

American rap star, Joe Budden 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.”
