July 07, (THEWILL) – Grammy winning Beninoise singer, Angelique Kidjo, has slammed critics of Burna Boy, saying that the Nigerian singer should be left alone.
Kidjo stated this in a conversation with Smooth FM in Lagos.
Answering a question about the perception of Burna Boy’s unapologetic nature, Kidjo responded, “That’s the way to do, because he knows what he is talking about.
“When you’re talented, yes, you have to have humility but that doesn’t mean you’re going to walk on yourself and apologize. For what? I’m good at what I do. You don’t like it? Sorry! If it was an African-American person having that attitude, nobody would say anything.
“That’s my boy mehn! Let him do his stuff. If you don’t like it, sorry for you… You leave my boy alone!”
