Buju Regrets Old Tweets of Him Criticising Popular Nigerian Musicians After They Surfaced Online
Nigerian singer Daniel Benson, popularly known as Buju, has reacted after old tweets of him calling out Nigerian singers and using demeaning words to describe their style of music before he became famous, were dug up and trended on the microblogging 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 criticised a number of Nigerian singers such as Davido, Yemi Alade, Mr. Eazi, Wizkid, Don Jzzy, among others and even called some “overrated”.
After the old tweets went viral on Twitter, he immediately deleted them tweets and then made a statement in reaction, saying at the time, he was ignorant.
He said, “Over the year’s I have grown to understand that receiving and consuming music is way easier than actually making music.”
