ID Cabasa explains why Burna Boy is not Nigeria’s biggest artiste.
The singer made this statement during his interview with Premium Times.
In an interview with Premium Times, the music star 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.
“I can’t say Burna boy is the biggest artiste in Nigeria. We have Davido, Wizkid, and Fireboy doing crazy numbers I. 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.
Cabasa stated that the best of something is never in the past and that every season, someone emerges to lead the pack.
In his words,
“that doesn’t mean that person is the best we can always have. 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; Ronald is better than Pele.”
The “Totori” Crooner, who headlined sound sultan’s Posthumous Album dubbed ‘Reality CHQ’, remarked that the music industry is a journey that passes through several seasons and generations.
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.”
