Burna Boy was asked a stupid question about Fela and he wasn’t having it


A music site asked him to choose between Fela, Wizkid and Beenie Man.

US pop culture website Noisey had Burna Boy on their series The Noisey Questionaire of Life. Inadvertently they let slip their lack of understanding of Nigerian music when they asked him to choose between Fela, Wizkid and Beenie Man.

Burna couldn’t hold himself back when he replied: What kind of stupid question is that? Do I really have to answer? It’s even disrespectful to answer. Never ask that type of question again to anybody. When you say Fela Kuti ehn, just talk about Fela. Don’t explain how water entered the coconut. Just leave it how it is. You understand?

We understand that it’s supposed to be tongue-in-cheek but comparing Fela withWizkid? Nah mehn! We’re with Burna Boy on this one.

Equally as hilarious was his reply when asked to choose between Fifth Harmony,Pussycat Dolls and Destiny’s Child.

‘What’s all that… What are the rest of them…? See I’m from Nigeria…you can’t ask me some kind of questions.’

As fellow Nigerians, we stand with Burna Boy. What is a Fifth Harmony?



Dj Syrax, aka Yellow Jesus, entered the world of electronic dance music at a peculiar moment in time. Since moving to lagos he has played many guest slots at parties all over the island including M&H Executive, Diamond bar, Val times, Fresher, Angels Bar at Badore. He is one of a very small number of house, club and street Djs who use turntablism & scratching in their DJ sets and he relishes multi genre mixing – he will play anything as long it’s round. And good of course.
