Social media has gone ablaze after David Adeleke, popularly known as Davido, referred to Burna Boy as a “new cat” in the music industry.

In an interview, Davido asserted that he and Wizkid were among the first to make it big in the Nigerian music industry.

He said, “Everyone knows that I was one of the first, along with Wizkid, to blow up. It feels good to see the new cats coming up like Burna Boy, Rema, Fireboy, Asake, and Mayorkun.”

Some netizens have shared their views on the issue.

Davido isn’t lying. Wizkid and Davido blow for international way before Odogwu blow too. Burna Boy wasn’t big back then.

@therealdaddymo1

Burna Boy released Like to Party in 2012, the same year Davido came out. Kilofa disrespect 😂👀🤔

@Villageparrot

Dami Duro and Back When were before 2012. Also, Wizkid, Davido, and Olamide were the top youngsters at the time. Burnaboy had not made his mark yet as at that time.

@TheMahleek

Na gorilla Davido dey call new cat??

@Kingdou05

Atlantic discovered him on Davido’s IG story.

@thesilvepr

Now wey Davido don comot Burna boy from “The Big 3”, after Wizkid and Davido, who be number 3? 🤔

@Irunnia_

Davido is an entertainer. Things no dey boring with him. He purposely added Burna boy because he knew Burna Boy must react

I am just waiting for Burna Boy to react. Everybody go collect. From Davido’s friends to his gateman even davido’s classmates in primary school go collect😭

@EiiScanty

whatever he said at the start was facts tho.
he didn’t lie. the only problem is putting Burna boy in the same category with fireboy, Rema and the rest.

@HarcourtHopeson

Taking afrobeat to places since when? Man just went international like 2018 with Ye and you’re saying it’s disrespectful putting him in the same category? Rema went international 2019 so what’s the difference?

@odogwu1001

Davido is very jealous of burna boy success so he want to push upcoming agenda on burna boy . 12 years of obo career hasn’t achieved half of wetin burna boy don achieved in music industry
