Instead of appreciating his essential musical contributions to the country, he claims, Nigerians circulate rumors that his mother was a dancer for the late Afrobeat pioneer, Fela Kuti, and that impotency is the reason he doesn’t have a baby mama like most of his colleagues.

Burna Boy, whose maternal grandfather, Benson Idonije, was Fela Kuti’s first manager, also slammed Nigerians for speculating that the June 8, 2022, incident in which his police escorts allegedly shot at one Ms. Steph Briella, her partner, and her best friend at Club Cubana, Victoria Island, Lagos, was because he was a Fela Kuti supporter.

The self-styled “African Giant” said this on “Thanks”, a J.Cole feature from his seventh studio album, “I Told Them,” which was released on Thursday night.

He sings: “Is this the m*ing thanks I get for making my people proud, every chance I get?

“It’s okay, I get. This Naija no love.

“They say my mama dance for Fela.

“They say I no get baby mama.

“They say I shoot person for Cubana because I want collect person woman…
Is this the m***ing thanks I get? For making my people proud, every chance I get.”
