Grammy award winner, Damini Ogulu, better known as Burna Boy, has explained some people hate him in the music industry.

Recall that Burna Boy had repeatedly claimed that Nigerians hate him.

In ‘Thank You’, a track from his recent album, ‘I Told Them,’ he insinuated that he was not being appreciated enough despite making the country proud.

He also claimed that Nigerians chose to spread rumours that his mother was one of the dancers of the late Afrobeat pioneer, Fela Kuti.

There have also been suggestions that the absence of a baby mama in his life, unlike many of his peers, might be due to impotency.

However, in a post via X on Saturday, the Afrobeats superstar said he was hated by his “inferiors” for having no “superiors.”

Sharing a photo of himself, the 32-year-old singer wrote, “Hated by my inferiors for having no superiors.”

Daily Trust reports that Burna Boy rose to stardom in 2012 after releasing “Like to Party”, the lead single from his debut studio album L.I.F.E.

In 2017, he signed with Bad Habit/Atlantic Records in the United States and Warner Music Group internationally.

His third studio album Outside (2018) marked his major-label debut.

He is widely regarded as one of the most influential African artists of all time.
