Burna Boy Is Not Deserving Of The Label “Great” – Patrick Doyle



Patrick Doyle, a veteran Nollywood actor, has blasted Grammy-winning artist Damini Ogulu, also known as Burnaboy, saying the singer does not deserve all of the acclaim he receives.

Doyle claimed in a social media post that Burnaboy does not deserve credit for recent achievements in Nigerian music, adding that the ‘final last’ crooner has done ‘nothing’ to be considered as outstanding.

“The credit for the feats that appear to be puffing up the likes of Burna Boy has to be properly ascribed to the greats who cleared the thorny paths that have created pathways for his likes to walk through almost effortlessly,” he remarked.

“Burna Boy has done nothing that can be characterised as great on his own. He and his peers are beneficiaries of the efforts of former heroes. They must be humble and respectful of their hardworking and truly pioneering forefathers.

“Great artists such as SunnyAde, Fela Anikulapo, Majek Fashek, I, K. Dairo, and a plethora of others who paved the way from the 1960s to the 2000s.” Greatness and big accomplishments do not exist in a vacuum.

“Let us not contribute to the creation of an obnoxious and arrogant monster.” Patrick Doyle made the observation.

Burnaboy recently asserted in a New York interview with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe that most Nigerian songs lack’substance.’

“90 percent of them (Nigerian musicians) have no real life experiences,” he says, “which is why most Nigerian music, African music, or Afrobeats, as people call it, is mostly about nothing, literally nothing.”

“It has no substance — nobody is talking about anything in it.” It’s simply a fantastic time. It’s an exciting time. But, at the end of the day, life isn’t perfect. You will face life regardless of how good a time you are having now, had in the past, or hope to have.”
