Why are blacks dying of COVID-19 than whites? – Burna Boy’s girlfriend, Stefflon Don react.

Advertisements

British rapper, Stephanie Victoria Allen also known as Stefflon Don, has asked why there have been more reported cases of black people who have died as coronavirus pandemic continues to hit the world.

There are reports that the black people are the highest hit of the deadly virus than other races.

According to Los Angeles Times, black and Latino Californians ages 18 to 64 are dying more frequently of COVID-19 than their white and Asian counterparts, as shown in a Times analysis of state health department data.

In reaction, Stefflon Don wondered if anyone could give a scientific explanation to the disease as she is confused about whether to go along with what is been shown in the news or to fight for answers.

Hurtin’ Me crooner and Burna boy‘s girlfriend wrote: “Can someone explain the scientific reason on why ‘Black” people are dying of Covid-19 more? Or we are just going to run with the news. With no explanation?”

Comparing me with Fela makes me feel weird.

not honourable


Damini Ogulu, Nigerian Afrofusion sensation better known as Burna Boy, says comparison between him and Fela Kuti, Afrobeat legend, is not honourable.

The award-winning singer disclosed this while speaking with GQ, a New York-based men’s magazine, where he reflected on his music career so far.


Burna Boy recently caused a stir on social media when he described himself as the best in the country’s music industry since Fela.

Many including, Seun Kuti, son of the late music legend, had aimed digs at the ‘Ye’ crooner, noting such comment was uncalled for.


But in the recent interview, the 28-year-old music superstar resisted the comparison with Fela, saying it makes him feel “weird”.

He that noted the late music icon was his inspiration while growing up, adding that there wouldn’t have been him without people like Fela.


“I don’t think anybody in their right mind would compare me to Fela,” he said.

“Fela is my inspiration and my childhood hero, so if you think comparing me to Fela is honorable, it’s actually not.


“It actually makes me feel weird. Fela was Fela, and if it wasn’t for Fela, there probably wouldn’t be any me, so I don’t understand the comparison.”

The ‘African Giant’ crooner also reflected on the controversies that trailed the cancellation of his trip to South Africa for the ‘Africa Unite’ concert during the heat of the xenophobic attacks in the country.


He pointed out that his rants on the issue was borne out of his passion for a united Africa, adding that the continent needs to wake up towards building a peaceful atmosphere.

“It’s all just very f*cked-up and twisted, and I wish to God that it wasn’t so, but it is, and all I can do is try and do my part to change it, no matter how small that part is,” he said.

Damini Ogulu; Burna Boy

“It’s almost as if the oppressors have won when the oppressed start acting like this. Do you understand? My family is in Africa, which is why you will hear me speaking on the South Africa issue, which is why it strikes a nerve.

“It’s almost like having your whole body, and your hand is not working. That’s what it feels like… Everybody should wake the f*ck up. South Africa and the whole of Africa needs to wake the f*ck up.”

Burna Boy speak on why he hate interviews.


Nigerian Grammy-nominated artiste, Damini Ogulu also known as Burna Boy has disclosed that sitting for interviews makes him very uncomfortable more than going on a tour.

The singer made this known in an interview with Nigerian-American entertainment journalist Lola Ogunnaike, where she sheds new light on the often reserved artist, his Grammy nomination, among other issues.


The story, entitled “Burna Boy, Global Giant” which featured in the latest issue of GQ magazine also sees the African Giant addressing hopes for a united Africa, comparisons to the Nigerian legend Fela Kuti, and touches on the comments he made last year about refusing to perform in South Africa following a spate of xenophobic attacks in the country.


According to Ogunnaike, she had been warned that Burna isn’t a fan of Interview, and he didn’t prove her wrong.

“Initially his answers are terse, his eye contact scarce, his wariness palpable. Baus and Burna’s music-label publicist, who have insisted on being present throughout our entire discussion, shift awkwardly in their seats. If Burna’s intention is to make us all uncomfortable, he has succeeded,” Lola Ogunnaike wrote about Burna Boy’s demeanor during the interview.


Burna Boy later explained during the course of the interview that he finds Interviews stressful.

“It’s not that I hate interviews,” he told Lola Ogunnaike, “It’s just that I find them stressful. I find them more stressful than going on tour. Because most of the questions you all ask are very direct, simple questions. But then I answer simply, and then you’re waiting for the rest like there’s supposed to be a rest of the answer when there really isn’t.”


He also disclosed that he was in Paris for the tour of his album, “African Giant” when he received the news that he had been nominated for the Grammy awards.

“My uncle ran into my hotel room screaming that I was nominated. We were all so happy,” he shared.


Speaking about comparisons between him and the iconic Nigerian musician Fela Kuti, Burna said, “Fela is my inspiration and my childhood hero, so if you think comparing me to Fela is honourable, it’s actually not. It actually makes me feel weird. Fela was Fela, and if it wasn’t for Fela, there probably wouldn’t be any me, so I don’t understand the comparison.”

Burna Boy also addressed the comments he made last year about refusing to perform in South Africa following a spate of xenophobic attacks in the country, which led to the cancellation of the ‘Africans Unite’ concert, which he was set to headline.


“It’s all just very fucked-up and twisted, and I wish to God that it wasn’t so, but it is, and all I can do is try and do my part to change it, no matter how small that part is. It’s almost as if the oppressors have won when the oppressed start acting like this.

“My family is Africa, which is why you will hear me speaking on the South Africa issue, which is why it strikes a nerve. It’s almost like having your whole body, and your hand is not working. That’s what it feels like.


“There’s too much going on in the world for everybody to just care about being fucking rich and fucking Instagram-clouded; everybody can’t be that. The more of that there is, the more the world suffers, and what’s important just goes down the drain and the downward spiral continues. It’s even accelerated. Now is the time. Everybody should wake the fuck up. South Africa and the whole of Africa needs to wake the fuck up.”

Nigerian Grammy-nominated artiste, Damini Ogulu {Burna Boy}

On Uniting Africa with Music: “The reason for everything I do and how I do it is for one goal and one goal only, and that’s the eventual unity of Africa. One day we’ll have one passport, one African currency, one Africa. Then and only then will my mission be complete.

“But that’s why I’m going to keep on fighting for it, and that’s why I’m going to keep pushing this message in my music. Because I want my children and their children to be proud to be African, to own a part of Africa. What I don’t want is for my children to still feel like foreigners in their own home.”

Kidjo hangs out with Burna boy days after Grammy event ..


Angelique Kidjo, a Beninese singer, has met with Burna Boy, Nigeria’s Afrofusion singer, and Bose Ogulu, his mum, days after winning the Grammys.

The 59-year-old actress and activist, who is known for her diverse musical influences, appeared to have paid a visit to the home of the ‘African Giant’ singer.


The duo took to their social media platforms on Friday to share pictures they took brimming with smiles.

In one of the videos on social media platforms, the talented songster can be seen discussing with Burna Boy and his mum, while the duo listened attentively.


Kidjo had snagged the Recording Academy’s 2020 ‘Best World Music Album’ award in the same award category in which Burna Boy was nominated for his ‘African Giant’ project.

While receiving her gramophone statuette on Sunday, Kidjo had dedicated her win to Burna Boy, describing him as being among those changing the narrative of music-making in the continent.


“He’s among those artistes from Africa that are changing the way that our continent is perceived and the way that Africa’s has been the bedrock of every music,” the four-time Grammy winner had said.

Burna had, following the loss, reassured his fans around the globe of his commitment to music-making, charging the world to get ready for his comeback.


Reacting to the ‘Ye’ crooner’s loss, Nigerians had flared while Naomi Campbell, an English actress, had criticized the Grammy organisers for failing to recognize Afrobeats as an award category.

“Afrobeats is a musical genre played on mainstream and primetime radio not only across the continent of Africa but across the world,” Campbell wrote in an open letter to the Academy.


“Recently, the genre was put in your ‘World Music’ category at the 2020 Grammys. This misrepresentation diminishes an entire genre in which such a high standard of talent has emerged.

“Did the world get to vote for this award? What will this neglectful categorization of music mean to individual cultures who contribute their blood, sweat, tears, and every level of their creativity?”

You were not awarded because you lack education – Model writes to Burna boy ..


Popular model, Naomi Campbell has written an open letter to the organizers of Grammy Awards after Burna Boy lost to Angelique Kidjo at the 2020 edition of the awards.


Naomi Campbell who praised Angelique for spreading light and opening minds through her music, stated that Burna Boy has not been given the accolades he truly deserves due to lack of education.

The supermodel averred that categorization of afrobeats in the ‘World Music’ category of the 2020 Grammys, diminished an entire genre in which such a high standard of talent has emerged.


Naomi who queried the recording academy on the voting pattern of the category, urged them to use the next 363 days to reassess and reflect on their perspective of ‘World Music.’

She wrote;

First, I want to say deepest congratulations to @angeliquekidjo for her award on Sunday, and thank you to you for spreading light and opening minds through your music… •


And to our AFRICAN GIANT, @burnaboygram… it is only due to lack of education that you have not been honored with the accolades you so truly deserve. You are always a winner in our hearts. ALWAYS. •

And to The @RecordingAcademy,
There is something that brings joy, strength and happiness to myself, and to so many people that hear it, and it is called Afrobeats. Afrobeats is a musical genre played on mainstream and primetime radio not only across the continent of Africa, but across the world… •


Recently, the genre was categorized into your ‘World Music’ category at the 2020 Grammys. This misrepresentation diminishes an entire genre in which such a high standard of talent has emerged; a genre that has been a force of hope and positivity for many, and a vehicle for artistry on the continent of Africa. •

Please take the next 363 days to reassess and reflect on your perspective of ‘World Music.’ Did the world get to vote for this award, or was it only the people in the United States a part of The Recording Academy? What will this neglectful categorization of music mean to individual cultures? Cultures who contribute their blood, sweat and tears, and every level of their creativity and work ethic into making music for YOU and for all of us. •

Please get up to speed on the state of all popular music today, and include Afrobeats Artist of the Year, Song of the Year, Album of the Year and all the subcategories that this genre so deserves – just as any other respected and recognized musical genre. •

This is bigger than you, so open your eyes, ears and minds and treat us right and with the respect we deserve.

2020 Grammy: I never hated Burna boy – AKA ..


Popular South African Rapper, AKA has reacted to the Grammy Award loss of Afrobeats singer Burna Boy.

The 62nd Grammy Awards which held last night in Los Angeles, California, saw Burna Boy lose to fellow African and legendary singer, Angelique Kidjo, with her album Ceila.


As soon as the news broke, trolls stormed AKA’s Twitter page to hear what he will say about the loss Burna Boy suffered.

Recall that Burna Boy and AKA went at each other over the xenophobic attacks inflicted on Nigerians by South Africans in their country.

With the Grammies over and Burna Boy going home, many expect AKA to express excitement.

However, he changed that narrative when he tweeted thus ;

“I never hated Burna Boy. All I did was stand up for my country. I think it’s time to move past this narrative. It’s tired. Like I said, even a nomination is a huge achievement”.

“What you should have done is focus on the positive instead of thinking about me and my country. In any case, Burna is still a champion. We still consider him a winner”.
