The topic of songwriting is a sensitive one for most Nigerian artists. It’s like they think it takes away from their creativity or artistry if they didn’t write the song. 

Meanwhile most of the American artists we know rarely write their own songs! A random twitter user woke up on the dragging side of the bed today and African giant, Burna Boy was his first victim.

According to the Twitter influencer Burna boy did not write his hit songs “Dangote” and “Pull Up.” He tweeted that Yonda wrote ‘Dangote’ and Perruzi of 30Billion Gang wrote ‘Pull up.’

Hours after the tweet the Odogwu himself replied the tweet with questions “Who wrote what for who? A tweet that can no longer be found because he deleted it moments after.

The fact that he deleted that tweet could be a confirmation that what this influencer tweeted may be true oh!

This tweet sparked a series of conversation on Twitter, did our faves write our favorite hit songs? or did they simply refuse to give the songwriters credit? 

I don’t think there’s anything wrong with having people write your songs as an artist as long as you give them the credit they deserve! What’s your take on this matter?
