Samklef has been getting a lot of heat following his statement that Nigerian listeners are currently so disinterested in lyrical content. Samklef stated that people really just want to dance and that lyrics do not carry so much weight anymore. But a lot of people including artists seem to disagree with him. One user online referenced Burna Boy’s incredible run this year as an example. Saying that Burna boy has achieved both local and global success this year and he did with meaningful content in his music. Therefore he should not try to mislead the new generation of artists with such untrue statements. To which Burna boy responded in agreement.

Dear young artists, don’t fall for this scam—it’s how you become a (n)one hit wonder
Nobody’s had a better 2019 than Burna Boy- & not 1 single song of his is bereft of lyrics. Not one.
With lyrics, people will sing your song even when it stops reigning & there’s no beat playing https://t.co/FHxNAuGtcy
