King Saheed Osupa Reacts To Burna Boy's Comment About His Music
The award-winning Fuji musician re-emphasized that his music is not just for fun but also to teach important life morals.
Veteran Fuji maestro Akorede Babatunde Okunola, popularly known as Saheed Osupa, has reacted to the comments made by Grammy-winning Afrobeats act Burna Boy about his music.
Burna Boy, in a recent Instagram live video, lauded the Fuji icon for making music that puts people in check mentally.
In the video, Burna sang some lines from the legendary American hip-hop group Wu-Tang Clan whom he recently attended their concert at the 02 Arena, and he went on to urge anyone who doesn't know the group to go listen to Saheed Osupa, whom he described as the Yoruba Wu-Tang.
King Osupa, who is known for his in-depth lyrical prowess and consistently using his music as a tool to sensitize his listeners, took to Instagram to react to the comment. He thanked the Grammy winner for his comments on his music and further emphasized how he uses his music as a tool for liberation. He wrote:
As a legendary musician that is lyrically fabulous… Awon Temi koni’gbo, won fi mi buga gan, won ni my musical dexterity is too much, Mi o ke’re ninu aye, Mo ni sia gan 🕺🕺🕺. “Extracted from the album titled POWER OF MUSIC”.
People that listen and understand the depth of my music are of high IQ and are very intelligent, I don’t make music for fun alone, I do Fuji music to teach morals and touch people’s life in different ways…
