On Friday night, Burna Boy sent social media agog when he threw a shade at two of Afrobeats’ major headliners, Davido and Wizkid.
Burna Boy took to Twitter on Friday, May 21; where he fired off a subliminal message at someone who seems to be Davido.
Earlier in the day, Davido took to his social media pages to post a creative photo with Wizkid and tagged it; “The 2 greatest of all time! No ”.

Moments later, Davido took to his Instagram story to promote his new music project, A Better Time. Recall several weeks ago, Davido announced that his 3rd studio album will be out in July 2020. He wrote, ‘July #ABT‘.
Few hours after his post, Burna Boy wrote on Snapchat;
“You cannot play football. Everybody knows you cannot play football and you are an embarrassment to the team. But your daddy bought the football team.”
Burna went on to share another post on Snapchat which is an innuendo to Davido’s post. This time, the self-acclaimed African Giant wrote; ”July will be very funny, and I shall laugh accordingly.”
Burna Boy and Davido are now currently trending on Twitter Naija; as people have been reacting to the shade which they say is for Davido.
According to some people, the post implies that Davido cannot sing and everyone knows it; but that his dad bought the music industry.
However, the self-acclaimed African Giant, Burna Boy is the one at the receiving end. Several Twitter trolls have dragged the 28-year-old singer for his statement which has failed to resonate well with predominantly Davido’s fan-base.
Meanwhile, Burna Boy has made several claims to greatness himself.
