Grammy swings debate in favour of Burna Boy against Obafemi Martins


Supporters of singer and songwriter, Burna Boy, have something to brag about in the money debate between the African Giant and Super Eagles icon, Obafemi Martins.

On March 1st, Twitter was flooded with ‘Happy New Month’ messages and wishes as well as expectations for the year before a tsunami hit the micro-blogging platform, thanks to rapper CDQ who called out Burna Boy for allegedly disrespecting Martins a.k.a ‘Obagoal’.

“Burna for the first time I’m disappointed in u!!! U and ur boys need to go apologise to Obagoal now! No let dem dey deceive you wit ur village title say african gi-ant com dey disrespect Oba; Eko lonpe bi, Obafemi Martins is not anybody’s mate. If we dey cry make we dey see,” he posted.

The rapper, in a comment on his initial post, also warned Burna Boy that no one disrespects anyone in his circle.

He wrote, “U don’t disrespect anyone in my circle and I look d other way; no way.”

Although the post was uploaded on his verified Instagram page, the gist was quicky wired to the bird app and it got the ‘Hollywood’ attention by fans from the ‘Monsters You Made’ singer and, of course, Obagoal’s supporters.

The fans began with a comparison of the stars’ wealth, with Obagoal seemingly appearing tops with more tweets that Burna FC.

Soon, the debate moved on to whips owned by the celebrities. Obafemi Martins remained silent while his supporters did the talking and dug up photos of his car collections but Burna Boy posted a picture of his cars, a black Ferrari, with a cryptic caption: “Riding Dirty”.

We’ll leave you to draw conclusions on that but in the mean time, see a video of the whip below:

Fast forward to this morning, Burna returned with a bang after the news broke that he is scheduled to perform at the 63rd Grammy Awards ceremony, which will hold on March 14, 2021.

The news has been well received by Nigerians who took to Twitter to congratulate him for his achievements as he looks forward to winning his first-ever Grammy on his second consecutive nomination.

Burna Boy’s Twice As Tall Album was nominated in the Best Global Music Album for the 2021 Grammy Award, currently held by four-time Grammy winner, Angelique Kidjo.

Kidjo won the category in 2020 with her Celia album.
