Grammy winner Burna Boy recently sparked conversation during an Instagram live, revealing the Nigerian music veterans he considers true "OGs" (originals or pioneers). While reacting to producer ID Cabasa's call for respect towards legends, Burna Boy offered a more personal perspective.

For Burna Boy, respect goes beyond mere seniority. He highlights the artists who directly influenced his journey: Timaya, D'banj, Larry Gaaga, Wande Coal, and 2Baba.

Timaya, he explains, instilled the belief in achieving stardom. D'banj's early support, particularly financing the "Wan Da Mo" video, holds a special place in Burna Boy's memory. Larry Gaaga's loyalty during his early days is another reason for Burna Boy's respect.

Burna Boy acknowledges 2Baba's musical talent and a past collaboration, further solidifying his "OG" status.

However, Burna Boy emphasizes that respect is earned through personal impact. He believes his experiences shape his definition of an "OG," suggesting ID Cabasa might find a different group of artists deserving of that title based on their influence on Olamide.

The article concludes by mentioning Wande Coal, another artist Burna Boy shared a close bond with at one point.

This live session offers a glimpse into Burna Boy's perspective on respect and the importance of those who supported him in his rise to fame.
