Legendary singer Angelique Kidjo, has defended Burna Boy further calling him “her boy”.
A lot of Nigerians describe Burna as one who has an ‘unapologetic attitude’ but Ms Kidjo says different.
During an interview with Smooth FM, she explained that one has to be humble when he/she is a star but that does not mean you let everyone take a swipe at you.
She endorsed that Burna Boy is good at what he does and should not be apologetic about it.
“If it was an African American that had that attitude, nobody will say anything about it.” “You leave my boy alone,” she added.
Burna Boy had lost the Grammy Award to Angelique Kidjo in 2020. She was announced winner of the ‘Best World Music Album’ with her album Celia. The win made her a four-time Grammy award winner.
However, the next year, Burna Boy made his mark as he emerged winner of the ‘Best Global Music Album’ category.
