Burna Boy has done nothing great, Sunny Ade, Fela, Majek Fashek paved way for him – Patrick Doyle

Nollywood actor Patrick Doyle has revealed Sunny Ade, Fela, Majek Fashek created a way for Grammy award singer Burna Boy who has not done anything by himself that can be described as great.

Doyle made this known on his Facebook page on Wednesday, asserting that singers in the 60s were responsible for paving the difficult roads that musicians are now taking credit for.

He stated that they [new musicians] must be “humble and respectful of their diligent and truly pioneering predecessors” in order to avoid creating an annoying and pompous monster.

Patrick said,

“The credit for the feats that appear to be puffing the likes of Burna Boy up have to be properly ascribed to the greats who cleared the thorny paths that have created pathways for his likes to walk through practically effortlessly.

“Burna Boy has not by himself done anything that can be remotely described as great. He and his peers are recipients of the labours of heroes past. They need to be humble and respectful of their diligent and truly pioneering predecessors.

“Great artistes like SunnyAde, Fela Anikulapo, Majek Fashek, I. k. Dairo and a galaxy of others who paved the way from the 60s to the 2000s.

“Greatness and great feats don’t exist in a vacuum. Let us not contribute to the creation of an arrogant and obnoxious monster.’’
