Buju Reacts After Old Tweets He Shared Shading Top Nigerian Singers Resurface. Fast rising Nigerian singer, Daniel Benson, popularly known as Buju has reacted after old tweets of him calling out Nigerian singers before he became famous, were dug up and recalled on twitter platform.
In the old tweets, the singer, who’s been making waves with his singles and features in the span of close to two years, specifically outed a number of Nigerian singers, criticized their works and even called some “overrated”.
In one tweet, he says “if everyone had his mentality, some musicians will not make it.” In another tweet, he called Davido a “childish c**t“. He called Mr Eazi overrated and outed Yemi Alade as well.
Wizkid, Davido, and Mr Eazi were not the only artists Buju trolled with his old tweets. He also took shots at Mavin Records singer, Rema. All these have led to the singer trending on social media, but for the wrong reasons.
Twitter users like @Just_Silva__ wondered if Buju did not know he was going to become an artist. She asked, “My own question is, when Buju was making those tweets, does he have any idea he was going to be an artist too?”.
Another Twitter user, @antigravitylite said; “This Buju guy didn’t know he would be an artist one day or what? He insulted Wizkid and Davido in the past. U expect to be bigger than them now? Same goes to u trolls that want to be musicians, come and blow na. There’s one Dreylo that once insulted Wizkid. He’s an artist now”.
After the singer’s old tweets went viral on Twitter, he immediately deleted the tweets and then made a statement in reaction, saying at the time, he was ignorant.
According to him, making music has made him realize that it’s easier to give “unsolicited takes” about another person’s music when you do not make music.
He added, “Over the year’s I have grown to understand that receiving and consuming music is way easier than actually making music.”
