Self-acclaimed African Giant, Burnaboy has rebuked reports that he is worth just $2million.
In a recent interview, the anchor of the interview brought up Google search results, revealing his net worth to be 22 million dollars, and questioned Burna Boy about its accuracy.
This prompted an unexpected burst of laughter from the musician then responded that he prefers them to think of his worth that way, but their result is way off.
“I prefer them to think of my worth that way,” Burna Boy stated with a chuckle, and added, “Their result is way off,” leaving fans and interviewers curious about the actual extent of his wealth.
This comes shortly after the Grammy award winner bashed afrobeat artistes, stating that they mostly sing about “Nothing” because they lack real-life experiences.
Speaking with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe, in an interview that was published on the streamer’s YouTube channel on Monday, the artiste said, “Not even experiences because 90 percent of them have no real-life experiences that they can understand. Which is why you hear most of Nigerian music or African music, or Afrobeats, as you people call it, is mostly about nothing, literally nothing.”
Burna claimed that “there is no substance” to the genre because most Afrobeats artistes only talk about having “an amazing time” in their songs.
“But at the end of the day, life is not an amazing time,” he continued .”No matter how nice of a time you are having now or you had at some point or you plan to have, you are still going to face life. So, for me, I feel like music should be the essence of the artiste. The artiste is a person who has good day, bad day, his great days and worst days.”
Ogulu further disclosed that his upcoming album “I Told Them” would be “a window” for his fans to see his experiences.
