Popular stand-up comedian Derrick Kobina Bonney aka DKB has lashed out at Ghanaians for not supporting Afro-Pop singer AI, after the latter’s song was used by Nigerian dancehall artiste, Burna Boy, without his consent.
According to DKB, Ghanaians are afraid of supporting their citizens when being bullied by foreigners.
In a passionate outburst on Facebook, DKB contrasted Ghanaians weakness with the strength of Nigerians, who he said defend each other when attacked by foreigners.
DKB’s outburst is fuelled by the predicament of Ghanaian rapper, A.I, whose song with Vision DJ, ‘Grind,’ was ‘stolen’ by Nigerian act Burna Boy, who released a so-called ‘re-up’ of the single titled ‘Chilling Chilling’.
Burna Boy credited A.I with a feature on his song and readily admitted it was a re-up of it, but A.I was not happy when he heard of it since he had not been contacted by Burna Boy for permission to reconfigure the song.
This made him go on a rant on Twitter, which later lead to Burna Boy blocking him.
DKB is unhappy that Ghanaians have not come to the defence of A.I, who, not only had his song stolen, but has also been blocked on Twitter by the one doing the stealing.
DKB argued that if the situation was reversed, Nigerian artistes would jump to defend their fellow colleague. He ended by calling for the #BurnaBoyIsAThief to trend.
