Burna Boy didn’t steal from America, we stole from him – Steve Harvey

American talk show host, Steve Harvey has absolved Nigerian Grammy winner, Burna Boy of any accusations that he stole from the music genre in America.

He stated that contrary to such belief, it was the West, especially America who are inspired by African beats, rhythm, and soul which is done by Burna Boy and other African artistes.

Harvey made the revelation when he appeared as a panelist on a TV programme while emphasising that Africans and Black American are the same

The comedian said in part;

“They talk about ‘Burna Boy stole this’, no we stole from Burna Boy. Them Africans is us. Africans are the beats, soul, rhythm, and hard work. We get our courage from them. When you see them people, they look just like your family.”


This comes as Burna Boy told Apple Music last year that he doesn’t do the popular West African music, Afrobeats but Afrofusion which he said was a fusion of American hip-hop, R&B, soul, Jamaican reggae and dancehall, and African music elements.

Recall Nigerian rap star, Eedris Abdulkareem and singer, Burna Boy clashed online recently.


The clash started with Eedris criticising the ‘Last Last’ crooner for saying that nobody in the Nigerian entertainment industry helped him, and he said that is a stupid talk.

This was in response to Burna Boy’s earlier shade where the self-acclaimed African Giant hinted that he is not happy with the people who contributed money for the Hip Hop artiste to undergo kidney transplant.

However, reacting via his Instagram page, Abdulkareem said Burna Boy wishing him or any other person dead was “truly saddening and very disappointing.”
