Meanwhile, Burna Boy and Sho Madjozi got into a little beef battle on social media over Stormzy’s Own It remix.

Artists are constantly throwing shade at one another on social media, especially when they are head-to-head for an award.

Briefly.co.za saw Sho throw shade at Burna Boy, claiming that he got Stormzy’s Own It remix taken down.

The two are going up against one another for a BET Award and Sho feels like this was part of Burna Boy’s plan to sabotage her.

Sho made the statement on social media, backing it up with email proof that Burna Boy got the remix taken down.

Burna Boy responded to claims, making it clear that he had no part to play in the track being taken down. He suggested that it might be because Stormzy’s record label didn’t clear the remix and it got flagged.
