Grammy Award nominee, Burna Boy, has been labeled a hypocrite after he shared a list of his achievements from 2019.

The Afrobeats artiste shared an artwork on social media, detailing how his African Giant album brought him huge success both home and abroad.

It also showed the amount of streaming he got on Spotify, international shows he appeared on and many other things which included his Grammy nomination and sold-out concerts.

However, fans couldn’t help but point out how he slammed other Nigerian singers for priding in the amount of streams their music do online some months back.


Burna Boy had stated that streams does not automatically translate to talent so it was unclear to many why he should take pride in sharing after having a successful year.

When he made the statement, he got a response from another singer Mayorkun who recalled that Burna Boy blew up Internationally because of a song of his that people mistook for Kanye West’s song.

The song titled Ye got lots of streams as a result of the mix up and also gave the singer International recognition.

Mayorkun tweeted in response to his attack:

“Imagine blasting me on top streams when e be sey na because if Kanye West na him Ye take blow. It’s all love down here still #DMW”
