Nigerian singer Damini Ogulu, known professionally as Burna Boy has sparked an interesting conversation online.
While granting a new interview, the Nigerian Afrobeat star who recently added a BET award to his cabinet on the heels of the Best Global Music album he won at the 63rd edition of the Grammys said Nasty C is almost better than any American rapper.
He spilled this out after he was asked his opinion on Americans tagging all genres of African music as Afrobeat.
In his reply, Burna stated that Nasty C is a rapper, therefore his music should be classified as rap and not afrobeat. He added that he shouldn’t be seen only as an Afrobeat musician just because he’s from Africa.
In his words; ”Yeah, everything is not Afrobeats. Nasty C is a rapper. And because he’s from Africa now, you’re going to say Afrobeats? Nah, he’s a rapper. Brah, I’ll put my money on Nasty C over almost any American rapper.”
