In recent times, Davido and Wizkid have been the Ronaldo and Messi of Nigerian music with so much competition between them, but it seems Burna Boy is about to step into their level.

Burna Boy’s first single of 2019 immediately climbed to number one spot ahead of his own Killin’ Dem Burna Boy which was at number one spot. The jam got a lot of vibes thanks to Zlatan. Dangote has been the street anthem ever since it release.

With these trends and consistency, one would boldly say he’s now on the same level with Davido and Wizkid, or at least an inch close. He could be rated above them very soon with a lot of international collaborations coming up soon. And the announcement of his African Giant Album coming soon will cause another trend with the reviews coming through from the already concluded listening party.
