Daniel Regha, the controversial social media commentator, has made another controversial claim about Burna Boy.
Regha suggested that co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Bill Gates, has confirmed his stance about musical superstar, Burna Boy being an upcoming artiste.
Last month, Regha in an interview with former BBNaija housemate, Doyinsola David referred to Burna Boy as an upcoming artiste, in comparison to Davido, Olamide and Wizkid.
Recently, Bill Gates, during a forum with students and young innovators from Nigeria and across Africa, shared he was ‘forced’ to look up two Afrobeats stars, Burna Boy and Rema following his daughter’s excitement about them.
He acknowledged Davido and Wizkid, stating ‘the last time he was in Nigeria, he did get to see them perform and was quite impressed with their performance’.
This prompted Regha’s remark where he reinforced his stance about Burna Boy being a new cat just like Davido had also mentioned during a recent interview.
O.B.O claimed he championed the spread of Afrobeats globally along with Wizkid and expressed joy at seeing the likes of Burna Boy, Rema, Asake, Fireboy DML, Mayorkun and others who he dubbed as ‘new cats’ ‘coming in and killing it’.
Following Gates comments on the Afrobeats superstars, Regha chided individuals who criticised Davido, Timaya and him for calling Burna an upcomer in the Nigerian music scene.
“When I said that Burna is still an upcomer despite his popularity, people called me crazy. Davido & Timaya were also insulted for implying the same; But all of a sudden Burna’s upcomer status has become facts cos of Bill Gates? Lolz. Y’all should keep deceiving yourselves,” he tweeted.
