Davido Calls Burna Boy ‘New Cat’ In Music Industry, Netizens React [Video]

Nigerian singer Davido has stirred up a storm of reactions on social media following his recent remarks, where he referred to fellow artiste Burna Boy as a ‘new cat’ in the music industry.

The statement, made during a recent interview, has ignited a discussion among fans and followers of both artists.

During the interview, the Afrobeat superstar Davido asserted that he and Wizkid were among the first successful pioneers in the Nigerian entertainment industry, predating the emergence of what he called the ‘new cats’.

He mentioned Burna Boy, along with Rema, Fireboy, Mayorkun, and Asake, as part of this new wave of talented artists.

Davido expressed satisfaction at witnessing the rise of these artistes and their impact on the music scene.

He acknowledged their talent and contribution to the growth of Afrobeats.

“Everybody knows I was one of the first, me and Wizkid, to blow up.

“It feels good seeing the new cats coming up. Burna Boy, Rema, Fireboy, Mayorkun.

“A lot of new cats coming and killing it. Asake; he is on my album. I think the future of Afrobeats is in good hands,” Davido said.

However, placing Burna Boy in the same category as the other mentioned artistes has sparked mixed reactions on social media.

Many fans of Burna Boy and supporters of the ‘African Giant’ believe that his achievements and influence in the industry have already solidified his status as a seasoned and established artiste.

They argue that labelling him as a ‘new cat’ undermines his accomplishments and musical journey.

Conversely, some fans resonated with Davido’s perspective, acknowledging the fresh talent and energy that the mentioned artistes have brought to the music scene.
