Nigerian singer, Daniel Benson, best known as BNXN has supported Burna Boy’s statement saying 90 per cent of Nigerian music today, lack substance.
BNXN, who signed a one-year contract with Burna Boy’s ‘Spaceship’ record label back in 2020, made this known during an Instagram live session Friday.
The ‘Gwagwalada’ crooner acknowledged Burna’s prowess, adding that just like his former boss, he also makes music with substance.
“You see why I connect so much with Burna is because everything is so different out here.
“When I listen to him and I listen to somebody else, it’s like, you can just tell he’s doing his own thing, the same thing if you listen to me.
“What we are doing here you can’t get anywhere else, I promise you. I said it.
“There’s only a few of us that’s real and that’s doing this thing with proper substance and having something to say in it,” BNXN said.
Burna made headlines with his comment on Afrobeat during an interview on Tuesday with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe.
The ‘I Told Them’ crooner said, “90 per cent of them have no real-life experiences that they can understand which is why you hear most of the Nigerian music or African music or Afrobeats as you people call it, is mostly about nothing, literally nothing. There’s no substance to it.”
