A still from Burna Boy's Ye Video

Nigerian singer, Burna boy took to social media to rubbish musicians who measure their talent based on streaming numbers.

According to Burna Boy if viral posts and songs like 'Baby Shark', 'Gangnam style' can have amazing streaming numbers then no one should get overly excited about streaming numbers.

His statement however received some backlash on social media, with some users regarding him as a ranter, who should rather focus on his blooming career than dampening the excitements of other artistes.
