The tweet eventually caught Burna Boy’s attention and in a post sheared by Sabiradio on Instagram, he asked the young man a question. “Who wrote what for who?” Here’s what people Nigerians had to say in the comment section to @Obong Roviel’s tweet. @la_teef01 wrote: “Receipt full ground. Yonda has done wonders in Burma’s career, but the gorilla go deny am.” @isreaL__xy commented: “You people should educate yourselves. Even great songwriters like Taylor Swift and Jon Bellion don’t write their songs alone.” @youngskalo said: “Burna acknowledged that Peruzzi actually wrote pull up for him.” @IDachem commented: “Who cares? The people selling their songs were not threatened with a gun to their head. You people will just be ranting.”
