However, oluwa Burna disclosed how he feels when people compare him to the King of Afrobeat “Fela Kuti”.
BELOW ARE SOME OF HIS WORDS :
“Fela is my inspiration and my childhood hero, so if you think comparing me to Fela is honorable, it’s actually not.
It actually makes me feel weird.
Fela was Fela, and if it wasn’t for Fela, there probably wouldn’t be any me, so I don’t understand the comparison,”
Speaking on his journey so far, he said :
“Unlike a lot of other people,
I’ve had to go through never-ending steps to get here, whereas other people have taken the elevator up.
I’ve always been too heavy for that kind of elevator, so I had to take the stairs.
Now I know every floor and everything on every floor.”
