American rapper, Joe Budden names Burna Boy as the ‘Biggest artiste in the world’

American rap star, Joe Budden has named Nigerian Afrobeat singer, Damini Ogulu professionally called Burna Boy as the biggest artiste in the world.

The rapper made this known in a recent episode of the Joe Budden Network podcast. Joe said he recognises Burna Boy’s status as a global music force but doesn’t appreciate him transferring the ownership of Jamaica-based artist, Byron Messia’s hit song ‘Talibans’ to himself after he was featured in the remix.

Joe Budden who was talking about the hit song noted that even when Kanye West did something similar some years back, he was “vehemently against it.”

He said; “I’m never a fan of people transferring ownership of already existing songs to themselves after being featured in the remix. To the biggest artiste in the world [Burna Boy]. Yeah, I’m not a fan of when that happens

“If you made the hit, go work it. If Burna Boy is on it, that should be yours now. But I don’t know the business he [Byron Messia] and Burna Boy did. I never remember that going right for somebody. Designer and Kanye [West], I was vehemently against it.”

Meanwhile, in another news, Ghanian artiste Shatta Wale declared that Asake is bigger than every Ghanaian artiste.

The controversial artiste made the statement while having a chat on Twitter Space hosted by Ghanaian media personality, Serwaa, on Wednesday.

Shatta Wale said; “No Ghanaian artiste has even made it like Asake. Not even me. Nobody in this Ghanaian [music] industry has made what Asake has made. Let’s be realistic.”

The host inferred: “But you said you are the richest Ghanaian artiste and you haven’t even made it up to Asake’s level?”

The singer responded: “Why would I have to make it up to Asake’s level [before I would be the richest artiste in Ghana]? There is a Spanish artiste in Spain or Dominican Republic that is making money that we don’t know.”
