Meanwhile, in another news…
CorrectNG reported earlier that Twitter Influencer, Daniel Regha said Grammy-winning singer, Damini Ogulu aka Burna Boy should not be put in the same category with Wizkid and Davido.
The social commentator said Burna is still an upcomer when compared to the two abovementioned singers as well as rapper, Olamide.
Regha made the statement while featuring on Doyin’s Corner hosted by Big Brother Naija star, Doyinsola David aka David.
He noted that when OBO, Baddo and Machala were the hottest artistes on the scene, Burna was nowhere to be found. According to him, 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.”
