Burna Boy is right, only few of us make music with substance – BNXN
Burna Boy's contentious claim that the majority of Nigerian musicians lack "substance" in their music has been supported by well-known singer Daniel Benson, aka BNXN.
According to The Daily Post, Burna Boy recently caused a stir when he implied that afrobeats is "literally nothing" and lacks lyrical "substance" in an interview with Apple Music's Zane Lowe.
Reacting during an Instagram live session, BNXN said Burna Boy was on point, stressing that only a few of them [artists] make music with “proper substance.”
He said, “You see, why I connect so much with Burna [Boy] is because he is so different.
“When I listened to him and I listened to anyone else, you could just tell that he was doing his own thing. Same thing when you listen to me. Except you want to be whining yourself, sha. You can't get what we are doing here anywhere else. I promise you.
“It’s only a few of us [artistes] that are real and doing this music thing with proper substance and having something to say in it.
“The other day, I was watching the Burna interview, and I was wondering why everybody got him so misinterpreted. What you don’t understand will always confuse you. So, it’s okay.
“Personally, I didn’t have a problem with what he said. The only issue there is that he failed to say he is also part of what we do [afrobeats].”
