- Sho Madjozi has taken fresh shots at Nigerian heavyweight musician, Burna Boy
- The John Cena hitmaker told YFM that she isn't intimidated by the rapper who recently scooped the Best International Act Award at this years BET Awards
- The two musos' beef began when they were both nominated in the same category at these prestigious awards
Sho Madjozi has revealed that she is not intimidated by Nigerian heavyweight, Burna Boy.
Our girl and Burna Boy had a disagreement over Stormzy’s Own It remix. Sho believes Burna Boy got it taken down as a means to sabotage her before the BET Award announcement, which Burna Boy won earlier this week.
The two musos had been nominated in the same category, Best International Act.
Burna Boy, however, denied it all. The John Cena hitmaker told YFM's Scoop Makhathini and Bontle Modiselle that she wasn't intimidated by the rapper, according to TimesLIVE.
"I know that, like, he is a bully. It is that thing of gatekeeping in this industry, as if there can only be one African superstar on a global platform. I don’t believe in that at all, there is enough space for everyone.
"They don’t even let him tweet for himself because they know how he is. Everything you see about me out there is me. I write it. I stand for what I stand for and I will always say things how they are.
"At the end of the day, I am not scared of anyone. They are a person, I am a person. Just because you are on an international level, so are we."
Briefly.co.za reported that Sho claimed on Twitter last week that Burna and his label were allegedly responsible for taking down the remix of Stormzy’s Own It, in which she was featured.
Burna Boy denied Sho's accusations, but Sho was having none of it.
"To believe this I would have to believe that: 1. The song got automatically flagged a month late by coincidence. 2. When they said YOU wanted it down they meant your label. 3. A big international label would release a song without clearing it. It’s a lot Burna. Let’s keep it 100%," she said.
