In a video that went viral, Eedris Abdulkareem, a veteran Nigerian musician, slammed Burna Boy for calling himself “Odogwu”, a title that means “great leader” in Igbo language.

He praised Davido as the real Odogwu, citing his achievements and impact on society. Eedris said, “You’re not acting like an African; you’re acting like a (caption this). Please calm down, bro. What’s the problem?”

“Davido came before you; Wizkid came before you; many others came before you. You’re not a giant, you’re not the giant of Africa.”

“You’re not Odogwu; Davido is Odogwu. I’m Eedris Abdulkareem, I’m speaking the truth, whether you like it or not.”

“I told 2face Idibia the same thing; I told him he’s the boss, the others, my boys, but he shouldn’t be arrogant.”

“Davido is Odogwu; I don’t know you. Davido is the only Odogwu we know because he has made a difference in people’s lives, and he’s not trying to outshine anyone.”
