According to the Nigerian singer-songwriter, he wrote the lyrics for Burna Boy, however, the Grammy winner failed to release the song. Then Davido took it up and used it in the second verse of his hit song “Intro” on his sophomore studio album “A Good Time” released in 2019.

Yonda during the interview revealed that the feud started when Davido used the lyrics in his song which gained massive recognition.

Yonda bragged during the session that he was the only one who really understood when Burna boy and Davido were trolling each other.

He noted that Burna boy started when he posted via his Insta stories that Davido doesn’t know the game (music) adding that he remains relevant in the music industry only because his dad is a billionaire who hired songwriters for him.

Also, Davido replied with a subliminal message in his hit song titled “Fem”.
