Veteran Nigerian singer, Eedris Abdulkareem, has accused Burna Boy of stealing a lot of Fela Anikulapo Kuti, songs.
Eedris Abdulkareem made the allegation during an interview on TVC’s “Entertainment Splash”, as he took a swipe at Burna Boy.
The singer stated that Burna Boy needs to apologize because Fela made it happen for him. He alleged that the “African Giant” crooner stole lots of Fela’s song to become who he is today and also from afrobeat.
Eedris also wondered the message Burna Boy passes with his music as he pointed out that Fela’s song came with meaningful messages. He said;
“Burna Boy needs to apologize. Fela made it happen for him and he stole from a lot of Fela’s song to become who you are. And you stole from Afrobeats to become who you are. Fela’s songs are strictly about messages that add value to the lives of people. What are your songs all about?”
