It all began on Monday night after Sowore tweeted at Burna Boy to join him in his planned protest scheduled for Thursday.

In a series of tweets, Mr Sowore said he has realised that Burna Boy is often compared to the late legendary Afro-beat musician, Fela Anikulapo Kuti.

He, however, noted that even though the foreign media have described Burna Boy as a revolutionary musician, the singer has not led any revolution like Fela whom he is compared to.

Sowore’s tweet attracted diverse reactions on Nigerian Twittersphere and Burna Boy, who, in his typical manner, did not disappoint his fans, responded.

In his response, the self-acclaimed African giant, addressed Mr Sowore as a Nigerian politician who cannot be trusted.

His tweet read: “Everybody is a Fela fan and supporter now that he is dead. Humans are so funny, you politicians are all the same (especially in Nigeria) and frankly, I don’t trust none of [email protected]
“Well. I am NOT FELA. I Have said that countless times. But you sir Are a politician. Leave me out of your schemes. Thanks”.

The former presidential candidate replied saying: “I am not just one of the persons who you could describe as “Fela’s fan after he died,” I am a member of Fela’s household, ask @RealSeunKuti, as a students’ leader in the 90s I met and hung out with Abami Eda at home and the African shrine! If you want to be Fela be Fela.”
