‘2Face, Timaya, D’banj are the only OGs I respect’ – Burna Boy


Grammy-winning singer Burna Boy recently shared his thoughts on the Nigerian music industry, expressing his respect for a select few veterans who have made a significant impact on his life and career.

According to Burna Boy, 2Baba, Timaya, D’banj, Larry Gaaga, and Wande Coal are the only individuals he holds in high esteem.


He credits Timaya for showing him that achieving success in the music industry is possible and expresses gratitude to D’banj for his support, including funding the music video for “Wan Da Mo”.

Burna Boy’s comments came in response to veteran producer ID Cabasa’s call for Nigerian singers to show respect to industry legends.

During an Instagram live session, Burna Boy acknowledged the challenges faced by many in the industry and emphasized the importance of recognizing those who have made a positive impact.


In his words: “The only OGs who have impacted my life; number one, Timaya, because he is the one who showed me that achieving stardom was possible. I’m going to respect him for the rest of my life.

“D’banj also supported me back then. He paid for ‘Wan Da Mo’ video. These are two people I don’t joke with. It’s not like n*ggas don’t have respect, no, n*ggas have just been through a lot and we only remember the people we saw in the dark times. People like Larry Gaaga. He stood by me back then. So these are people I will respect for the rest of my life.

“When you’re talking about OGs, as far as I’m concerned, those names are the only ones in addition to 2Face based on musicality and the fact that he did a feature with me when he didn’t have to back in the days.

These are OGs to me. Any other person isn’t an OG to me. ID Cabasa, you can meet Olamide and you can be an OG to him [laughs]. We’ve all been through stuff differently and we all see life differently. I can’t forget Wande Coal, too. At a point in time, we were so close.”
