August 5, (THEWILL) – Olumide Ogunlade, better known as ID Cabasa, has stated that Grammy Award-winning singer, Burna Boy, is not the biggest artiste in Nigeria.
He made this known in an interview with Premium Times. The Coded Tunes boss said every generation and season always has someone who is the arrowhead and it doesn’t necessarily mean that the person is the best among their peers.
He stated, “I can’t say Burna Boy is the biggest artiste in Nigeria. We have Davido, Wizkid, and Fireboy doing crazy numbers. We have Ckay, who we should not disrespect, especially with his numbers. We have a whole lot of these guys doing crazy numbers out there.
“Even by next year, we will be celebrating some other young artists. We didn’t mention Kizz Daniel, whose song is the biggest right now that everyone is buzzing with”, he stated.
Cabasa noted that the best of anything is never in the past, and for every season, we always have somebody coming out to lead the pack.
“Before Burna Boy, Wizkid, Davido, Olamide, and even before ID Cabassa came into the industry; there were people.
“It’s a journey. We would always have the best. Now, this is 2022. If you ask an 18-year-old guy, who is Pele? He would tell you he doesn’t know who Pele is. He would also tell you about Lionel Messi; Ronaldo is better than Pele.”
The “Totori” Crooner, who headlined Sound Sultan’s posthumous album dubbed ‘Reality CHQ’, noted that the music industry is a journey that experiences and goes through different seasons and generations
He further pointed out that no one stands as a champion forever.
