Ace singer, Burna Boy has stirred reactions online by mentioning Timaya, Tubaba and D’Banj, as the only veteran musicians he respects in the Nigerian music industry.

Speaking during a live Instagram session with fans, the Grammy winner also named Wande Coal and Larry Gaaga, noting that they are the only legends who have impacted his life and career.

The self acclaimed African Giant stated this while reacting to veteran producer ID Cabasa’s recent call on Nigerian singers to do well to respect legends.

Timaya, Tubaba, D’banj are the only OGs I respect’ - Burna Boy

Burna Boy recalled when he first met Timaya in 2013 and saw many expensive cars in his house, which prompted him to ask the Dem Mama crooner how much one would have to save for one to afford such luxuries.

According to him, Timaya encouraged him and declared that he will be so successful that he would buy numerous cars beyond his imagination.

Burna said: “The only OGs who have impacted my life; number one, Timaya, because he is the one who showed me that achieving stardom was possible. I’m going to respect him for the rest of my life. I went to his house in 2013.

“D’banj also supported me back then. He paid for ‘Wan Da Mo’ video. These are two people I don’t joke with. It’s not like nxggas don’t have respect, no, nggas have just been through a lot and we only remember the people we saw in the dark times. People like Larry Gaaga. He stood by me back then. So these are people I will respect for the rest of my life.

“When you’re talking about OGs, as far as I’m concerned, those names are the only ones in addition to 2Face based on musicality and the fact that he did a feature with me when he didn’t have to back in the days. These are OGs to me.

“Any other person isn’t an OG to me. ID Cabasa, you can meet Olamide and you can be an OG to him [laughs]. We’ve all been through stuff differently and we all see life differently. I can’t forget Wande Coal, too. At a point in time, we were so close.”
