For Burna Boy, no deal with songwriters

Burna Boy

If all musicians were like Burna Boy, songwriters would likely starve till eternity.

The reason is that he does not cultivate them.

According to him, no one can write songs for him, noting that he is own songwriters.

This should attract more kudos to him based on how prolific he has been, with many of his songs still being hits.

The Grammy winner noted this as he refuted claims by Logos Olori, a signee of Davido, that he (Burna) engages songwriters.

As ‘The Nation’ reports, Olori had stated that many top artists, including Burna Boy, Wizkid, and Davido, rely on songwriters due to their busy schedules.

Burna Boy stated on X: “Any name you see credited on my songs are only producers of the songs or featured artists, not writers. But for some reason, the Western world considers producers as writers of the instrumentals and they just throw their names on there as writers. Nobody fit write for Odogwu.”


Burna Boy had previously acknowledged Peruzzi as the only songwriter he had worked with.
