I learnt songwriting from Burna Boy, he’s the best – Omah Lay

Nigerian Afropop singer, Stanley Omah Didia, better known as Omah Lay, has said that Burna Boy is at the top when it comes to songwriting.

He stated this during an interview on Pulse One On One with broadcasters, Motolani and Kemi Smallz, noting that he learnt from the ‘Common Person’ crooner.

According to Omah Lay, he’s been listening to Burna Boy from when he stayed in Port Harcourt, and he knows that no one in the industry can measure up to the Grammy winner’s pen game.

He also recounted the time that he declared himself the best in songwriting, saying that before he tweeted is thoughts, he almost said that he was the second best after Burna Boy.

”Hahaha! Nobody comes close to me with the pen”, he had tweeted.

But he later texted the self acclaimed African Giant not to take his tweet seriously.

The ‘Lo Lo’ said he learnt the art of writing songs from Burna Boy and he does not think anyone else is that good.

Omah Lay restated that he listened to Burna his whole life.

Similarly singer, Spyro has said that music superstar, David Adeleke also known as Davido is superior to Ayodeji Balogun aka Wizkid.

He stated this during a question and answer session on Urban Xtra, when he was asked whom he prefers between the two artistes.

Spyro said it is a joke to compare Wizkid to Davido, because the Omo Baba Olowo surpasses everyone in the industry in terms of success.

He talked about how the DWM boss has helped different artistes including himself, whereas nobody can mention a single artiste that Wizkid helped since he started music.

Spyro said that he measures success by the number of people a person has made into a notable individual and Davido ticks the box for him.

He, however, stated that Wizkid is also a fantastic person, but he does not think that he is up to OBO’s level.
