Streaming Number Doesn’t Make You Talented – Burna Boy 


Singer Burna Boy has come for his colleagues in the music industry who boast over their compilations of streaming number of songs.

The singer in his post, stated that streaming numbers do not imply that a singer is talented and no one should get carried away by them.

He stated that if viral songs like ‘Baby Shark’ and ‘Gangnam style’ could have amazing streaming numbers then no one should get overly excited about the millions of views and listens they get on the internet.

“This streaming shit be making people think they are actually talented. If joke things like ‘Baby Shark’ and “Gangnam Style” can do more numbers than everyone, don’t think you are talented or respected cuz of your streaming numbers. Everyone with real working brains know what is a joke and what is real. Anyway, plenty talk no dey full basket. Let time reveal all,” he wrote.   

Burna Boy’ statement could be in reaction to Mayorkun’s post some few days back.

The DMW artiste had taken to social media to post on his achievement after he attained 70million streams across different platforms.

His statement however received some backlash on social media, with some users regarding him as a ranter, who should rather focus on his blooming career than dampening the excitements of other artistes.

If you recollect, some days back, Burna Boy took to social media to condemn Nigerian artistes jumping on international deals.

In a post he shared on Instastories, the singer revealed such artistes don’t know what they are getting themselves into.

He however expressed gratitude to his mother and manager for helping him navigate without the help of foreign record companies.
