The Nigerian singer, Reekado Banks seems to have thrown shade at the Grammy award winner, Burna Boy in his new song titled Ozumba Mbadiwe .
The song Ozumba Mbadiwe was released by Reekado Banks to advance the EndSars protest which was held in October 2020 and turned out bloody.
Although Ozumba Mbadiwe was released to celebrate the protesters who lost their lives during the protest, fans speculates that the lyrics of the song was a shade at Burna boy.
In the song he said “Well If You Think Say You Be Giant, You Be Giant For Your Pocket, If You Only Fight For Your Pocket…” .
It is believed that he made this statement due to what happened in March 2020 when Burna boy stepped on the toes of Reedkado Banks’ fans by saying Reekado banks is not a worthy challenger if they were to do a battle lyrically, musically and physically.
This happened when a fan of Burna boy prompted him to declare that he would go toe to toe with worthy challenger in the music industry.
“I don’t really know what a hit battle is but I’m willing to go toe to toe with ANY worthy challenger. Lyrically , musically , physically. However they want it,” Burna boy said.
Reekado Banks reacting to this replied, “@Burnaboy I’m game that energy let’s get it.”
Well Burna boy didn’t see Reekado as a worthy challenger as he replied “You know I got too much love for you bro. But didn’t you see wen I said “Worthy Challenger”? Reeky oooooo!!!
It seems Reekado has been looking for a way to pay him back as he reflects it in his new song when he said “Well If You Think Say You Be Giant, You Be Giant For Your Pocket, If You Only Fight For Your Pocket…” .
We all know that Burna boy is the only one who is referred to as African Giant.
