A particular U.S artiste going by the name—Bia—claimed not being able to recognise the facial/physical appearance of Nigeria’s Top 3 music power, that is, Wizkid, Burna Boy and Davido while on a live video on Instagram. To say the least, she did trend yesterday but not for the right reasons as she was subjected to a lot of trolls from the fanbase of these music artistes on Twitter.
Na the video wey cause fight be this.pic.twitter.com/lJFKngkzzZ

All through yesterday, neither Burna Boy, Wizkid nor Davido seemed fazed by her statement but as of today’s (Saturday) evening, Burna Boy is back on his bully on microblogging app, Twitter, boastfully pointing out the flaw in her statement. He tweeted in pidgin English: “That babe wey nor know our face don dey my dms since 2018 o.”
That babe wey nor know our face don dey my dms since 2018 o. 😂🤣 🤣.

After Burna’s evident shady tweet of Bia, further evidence has come forth, even showing her i.e Bia commenting on an IG post by Burna Boy in 2018 whom she claimed not to know by physical appearance.

Olakira finally acquires a Maserati
Olakira who released the catchy groundbreaking hit single last year June titled In My Maserati, a song which had him show off his wooing skills but unlike the cheesy pick-up line go-to used by other guys, Olakira flexed and simply asked the girl to “Hop in my Maserati”. The song even became more of a hit when Davido jumped on it, adding a verse to the remix, which was simplified as Maserati, instead of it’s original three-word title.
It is September of 2021, a year and 3 months since the original release of Olakira’s debut hit single and what better way to celebrate the blessings that came forth from it, than buy spoiling himself. Olakira does this by actually acquiring a Maserati car for himself.
The blue coloured speed beauty, a Maserati Lavante Hybrid 2021 model costs about $78,290 (USD) (according to car.usnews.com), an approximate 32,216,335.00 in naira; Olakira captions this “A dream come through, we rave in a maserati now!!”

Since Maserati, Olakira has gone on to release other singles including his sophomore EP—”4play”—in May of this year. Congratulations to him.
Burna Boy did not sellout the 02 arena, attendees claim
Nigerian musician—Burna Boy—was the talk of the town on Friday, 27th of August for his energetic performance at the 02 arena, London which he confirmed via several posts on his Instagram that it was a shutdown event as advertised. Shortly after his very lively stage presence, Burna Boy wrote on his story: “I Sold OUT the 02 by myself. At the prices I wanted. The way I wanted. Never talk much, Just show Action !” (sic) in a bid to cancel the rumours circulating the internet about his ‘Space Drift Tour’ which held in the UK not being a sold out event.
Much to the surprise of many today, Diane, a violinist who performed at the grand show went on her Instagram and wrote that it was actually a total of 12,000 people who attended the show as opposed to the maximum 20,000 seat capacity in the 02. Diane’s post (probably unknowingly to her) has started an online trend where attendees and fans of Burna Boy have come out in support of her and agreed to the fact that the 02 performance by Burna Boy was not a shutdown event.
A user by the handle @shonibay attests: “I was there – the ahow was really good but it didn’t sell out” yet another writes: “Boxes were empty. Seats were empty but the vibe and energy was there. So you pipol keep screaming sold out. Like say you were there mctchewww.” (sic) per @TopeTops. The most confusing tweet of all and yet-to-be confirmed claim according to @RonxxO reads thus: “Getting into burna boy’s concert for free was actually the highlight of august [ROTFL emoji] Friday was too lit I want to rewind time bro” (sic).
In an effort to dispute Burna Boy’s brag of selling out the 02 arena, one thing stands out among his fans and that is the fact they all testify to the electric performance by the African Giant singer. A commendable attitude! As of the time of writing, neither Burna Boy nor his camp have come out to say whether the claims are true or false. So is Burna Boy or the attendees to be believed?
“Question” by Don Jazzy and Burna Boy to be released tomorrow
Don Baba J and Odogwu linking up might just be the collab of the year as both of them are confirmed to be on the their first collaboration ever titled Question which will be released tomorrow, Tuesday, 24th of August.
Don Jazzy and Burna Boy being on the same song was first teased last week when the Mavin boss posted a photo of him and Burna inside a drop-top car, giving hints that the video for Question have been shot already and now the food is finally being warmed in the microwave, set to be dished on a platter of platforms from Apple Music to Spotify to YouTube etc tomorrow.
Safe to say, Don Jazzy doesn’t go wrong when it comes to making beats—scratch that—hits, okay both and Burna on his part, ignites like the Human Torch from Fantastic Four whenever on a track, hence we should expect nothing but flames tomorrow when Question hits mainstream streaming platforms.
