“if it wasn’t for Fela, there probably wouldn’t be any me” – Singer Burna Boy

Singer Burna Boy has opened up about his comparison to the late legendary afrobeat singer, Fela Kuti.

After a whole lot of question and answer section between the Interviewer and the African Giant, Burna Boy, the interviewer raised the Fela question.

At first Burna Boy tried to weaver the question, but he started answering by first saying “I don’t think anybody in their right mind would compare me to Fela,”

He later delves into the question by saying this:-

“Fela is my inspiration and my childhood hero, so if you think comparing me to Fela is honorable, it’s actually not,” he states. “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.”
