Pray coronavirus catches you before I do, Burna Boy threatens songwriter
Damini Ogulu, popularly known as Burna Boy has issued a threat to songwriter Ceezamilli after he claimed that he vibed (wrote) about 50-60% of his (Burna Boy’s) hit song “On the Low”.
Burna Boy had earlier taken to Twitter to declare that he has not at any time had cause to approach any person or songwriter to pen lyrics for his songs except one time that he had to engage the services of Peruzzi.
“For the record I have never had any help to write any song ever, except one time and that was with @Perruzi,” Burna Boy wrote on the social media platform.
The singer’s claim was however countered moments later by Ceezamilli who recounted how he vibed 50-60% of the hit single “On The Low”- one of the songs off Burna Boy’s latest album “African Giant”.

Ceezamilli even went further to claim that Burna Boy altered some of the lyrics in the song, and also disclosed that the recording for the song was made by Kel P for another artiste who had not voiced on the track at the time.
In his reply, Burna Boy called Ceezamilli a spineless liar for claiming that he wrote 60% of the said song.
‘@Ceezamilli just pray that coronavirus catches you before I do because you know what it is when I catch you,” Burna Boy replied the songwriter.
Meanwhile, the ‘Ye’ crooner has revealed how he felt after he lost out in the ‘Best World Album’ category at the 62nd Grammy Awards to Beninese singer and songwriter, Angelique Kidjo.
When asked by a fan on Twitter about how he felt after losing in the Best World Album’ category, Burna Boy replied saying;” Sick, totally sick. But my musical mother @angeliquekidjo told me everything I needed to understand about the Grammys. So now, I am twice as tall.
