SA rapper Sho Madjozi has taken fresh shots at rival Burna Boy, saying she isn’t intimidated by the Nigerian star.
The pair squared off within the Best International Act category at the BET Awards on Monday, but the awards were overshadowed by claims that Burna had allegedly asked for Sho’s remix to be pulled from streaming services.
Speaking on her decision to “out” the rapper on Twitter, Sho told YFM’s Scoop Makhathini and Bontle Modiselle that she wasn’t intimidated by the rapper.
“I know that, like, he’s a bully. it’s that thing of gatekeeping during this industry as if there can only be one African superstar on a worldwide platform. I don’t believe that in the least, there’s enough space for everyone”.
She claimed that not even Burna’s team trusted him to tweet for himself, and said that each one her tweets were 100% authentic.
“They don’t even let him tweet for himself because they skills he’s. Everything you see about me out there’s me. I write it. I represent what I represent and that i will always say things how they’re . At the top of the day, I’m not frightened of anyone. they’re an individual, I’m an individual. simply because you’re on a world level, so are we.”
Sho claimed during a long Twitter thread last week that Burna and his label were allegedly liable for taking down a remix of Stormzy’s Own It, during which she was featured.
“For those asking where the Own It remix is after I got nominated alongside him for BET Best International Act, Burna Boy asked Stormzy’s team to take down the song immediately. The song was out for a whole month before that, no problem.”
She added that the song was taken down just after it was announced she would go up against Burna Boy, Stormzy, and other male international artists at the BET Awards.
Sadly, Sho lost out to Burna at the awards.
