Popular singer, Jaywon has come out to speak on artists who insist no one paved the way for them.

He recently had his say while speaking on the Teju Babyface podcast, and fans have been reacting.

According to him, even if Burna Boy is extremely talented, he cannot tell me he has never been inspired by another Nigerian artist while working his way up the Nigerian music industry.

Jaywon added that it will take nothing from him to give a shoutout to those who came before you.

His words, “Burna is talented, everything, but when it comes to that attitude, it’s like Burna saying ‘nobody paved the way for me’. How can you say that? It’s a very wrong thing to say. You don’t understand. It’s madness.

Because that means you’re saying from when you were little till now, no one has inspired you.

It’s not going to take anything from you to give a shoutout to those that came before you…. It won’t stop your greatness. If you know you know!”
