’Every artist has substance’ singer Joeboy disagree with Burna Boy

    Published By:

    Nigerian singer, Joesph Akinfenwa Donus, better known as Joeboy, believes every artist has substance unlike his colleague Burna Boy.

    Joeboy on the recent episode of the Zero Condtions podcast went against Burna Boy opinion publicly, stating that anything that is created is valid and worth something.

    In his words, “I feel everybody has substance. It’s just based on what people relate to… I understand that you can’t connect to every form of music that you come across. But I promise you, anybody that has the ability to create something out of thin air, it is substance.”

    Backing his claim, the singer shared different reactions to different songs, maintaining that anything that connects with an audience holds substance.

    “Sometimes when you make a high tempo song that is danceable, people feel like you are just vibing… And when someone sings in Pidgin, they [fans] would be like, ‘Ah! This one dey do lamba.’ It’s not lamba. It’s actually still connecting.”

    His reaction is directed towards Burna Boy’s recent statement in an interview with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe, that Nigeria artist makes music without substance.

    Burna Boy said, “Afrobeats, as you people call it, is mostly about nothing. There’s no substance to it, and nobody is talking about anything. It’s just about having a great time,” he said. “For me, I feel like music should be the essence of an artist, and an artist is a person who has good days, bad days, great days, and worst days.”

    This statement was made ahead of the release of his seventh album ‘I Told Them’.

    Burna Boy has been dragged by Nigerians on social media over this statement.
