It's madness for Burna Boy to say no one paved the way for him - Nigerian singer, Jaywon says (video)


Nigerian singer Oluwajuwonlo Iledare, professionally known as Jaywon, has shared his opinion on artists who insist no one paved the way for them.

The songwriter appeared on the Teju Babyface podcast where he specifically spoke about Burna Boy.

He said: "Burna is talented, everything, but when it comes to that attitude, it's like Burna saying 'nobody paved the way for me'. How can you say that? It's a very wrong thing to say. You don't understand. It's madness."

He continued: "Because that means you're saying from when you were little till now, no one has inspired you.

Jaywon also took to X and Instagram to write: "It's not going to take anything from you to give a shoutout to those that came before you.... It won't stop your greatness. If you know you know!"


Jaywon's interview comes after Nigerian rapper Odumodublvck and singer Burna Boy said no one paved the way for them.
