On Monday, popular social media influencer, Daniel Regha declared that Nigerian Afrobeats superstar Davido is bigger than his counterpart Burna Boy.
In a post shared on his X account in response to Burna Boy’s shade thrown at Davido, Regha noted that Burna Boy winning an award doesn’t make him bigger than Davido.
His post reads, “Davido is a bigger artiste than Burna (hit songs aside), winning awards doesn’t change that; Him using a Grammy to throw shades is an immature act, cos the Grammys is practically worthless nowadays & is literally by connections.”
According to him, Burna Boy has no right to troll Davido because even after being nominated for Grammy awards ten consecutive times, he only won one which rumour has that he was helped to win by one “Diddy.”
He further noted that any artiste that relies on awards to prove their worth or superiority, is not as big as they think.
Reacting to this, an X user, concurred with Regha, @abazwhyllzz, noting that, Davido is bigger than Burna Boy and should never be compared with him because Burna boy is a new “cat” in the music industry.
The post reads, “This is the second time I have to agree with you Daniel Regha. Davido is far bigger than burnaboy, it’s very clear. Burnaboy is a new cat,he should channel his energy into the likes of Rema and Asake.”
Another X, @MeetSunshineMay, who disagreed with Regha noted that, Davido is not any where close to Burna Boy because Burna Boy is definitely bigger than him, “Why would you compare Burna boy with Davido in the first place? It’s like comparing Bob Marley with wizkid. Of course both are equally influential, but oluwa burna is on a different wavelength entirely. After burna came to the limelight, I started listening to naija music. Burna all the way,” the tweet reads.
News About Nigeria reports that the banter about who is bigger between the two artistes came after a fan of Davido replied a meme shared by the “City Boy” crooner.
Davido’s fan had ridiculed Burna boy but in response to what he said, Burna had replied that, the actual joke is his display picture which happens to be a photo of Davido.

Seeing this from Burna Boy is a big time low, Mahn I don't get this level of bitterness.
Y'all think it's just pettiness, this is witchcraft if it were in his powers, he'd prolly cease the career of Davido. This is irritating to see. African Giant my foot pic.twitter.com/u7qPQYNRHJ
