Burna Boy has debunked claims that he is involved in the take down of ‘Own It’ remix as claimed by Sho Madjozi, the South African rapper.
She claimed the singer had requested Stormzy to take down the song when she was nominated in the same category alongside Burna Boy.
BET released their nominee list, placing both Sho Madjozi and Burna Boy in the “Best International Act” category.
However, Burna Boy explains that the song was not cleared with the record label (Atlantic US) hence, the take down.
He said the song is not his own and cannot influence a take down.
“Own It is NOT my song. If my voice is on it however it should have been properly cleared. If the remix wasn’t cleared with the label (Atlantic US) it automatically gets flagged. Nothing to do with me personally or any award. Always best to reach out professionally. Congrats on BET’s!,” he twitted.
He also went on to congratulate other nominees; “Oh and congrats to my brothas for life Dave, hus and stormz who I’ve made LEGENDARY music with! We’re all nominees in the same category but UNITY will always be the real win for us!.”
