Speaking further, he stated that many compatriots usually disregard his status because of how he sounds and they can’t imagine how a person who sounds like he does would be above an American artiste.

According to him, his forthcoming album “I Told Them…” is a clap back at critics and detractors who has downgraded him both at the beginning and middle of his career.

Burna Boy said …

To this day, there’s many Nigerians who can tell you an American rapper who just started their career, and they’ll say they’re bigger than Burna Boy. They don’t understand it. They’ll say, ‘There’s no way someone who talks like me, can even be on the same level as an American artist.”
