Burna Boy has since stirred reactions from Nigerians on social media as some frowned at his statement, describing him as ‘proud’.
However, Eedris speaking in an interview on TVC’s “Entertainment Splash” urged Burna Boy to apologise for the statement because Fela made it happen for him.
He claimed that the star stole most of his songs from Fela to become who he is today and also from Afrobeat.
“Burna Boy should apologise for that statement because Fela paved the way for him.
“Most of his songs were stolen from Fela’s songs and Afrobeat.
“Fela’s songs pass meaningful messages but I wonder what his music teaches,” Eedris added.
