Burna Boy Revives Rivalry, Calls Davido a ‘Joke’ Amid Grammy Backlash

Online discussions about artists not winning Grammys, especially Nigerians, continue. Recently, Burna Boy caused a stir on social media by talking about Davido after Nigeria lost the 2023 AFCON final.

Amid criticism, Burna Boy defended himself against a Davido fan who called him a “fool” for not winning any of his four Grammy nominations. Burna Boy responded by suggesting that Davido was the real “joke.” This exchange led to a significant uproar online.


Despite Burna Boy deleting his response, followers had already taken screenshots. The Davido fan who provoked Burna Boy changed his display picture to Burna Boy, catching the attention of another follower who brought it to Burna Boy’s notice. In response, Burna Boy reacted with three laughing emojis.

Securing four and three Grammy nominations each, Burna Boy and Davido faced disappointment as neither artist managed to clinch a victory at the recent awards ceremony. This outcome has not only disappointed fans but has also opened the door for trolls to mock the artists.
