Nigerian dancehall artiste, Cynthia Morgan, had dished a stern warning to any social media user who dares to slander Grammy award-winning singer Burna Boy.
The “German Juice” singer also dispelled talks that Burna Boy was a video vixen for her “Simati Niya” video, describing him as “the biggest artist in Africa.”
Morgan said she insisted on having Burna Boy in the video and that almost made her lose her deal with her then label boss, Jude Okoye.
It all began when an argument ensued between fans of top singers on Twitter, who wanted to speak highly of their favourite artists.
During an argument, a tweep threw shades at Burna Boy for being a “video vixen” for Morgan while Nigerian superstar, Wizkid, was already hanging out with top international artists.
Responding to the tweet, Morgan said, “Burna Boy has always been a big artist. You were just a kid.”

“And I remember almost losing my record deal with Jude Okoye’s label for standing my ground that it was only Burna Boy I wanted and no one else.
I know a lot of you love living in lies either due to tribalism or personal hatred. But please, I never want to see my name in any sentence that has to do with a Burna Boy slander. He is the best and the biggest artist in Africa till I pick the mic again,” she wrote.

Cynthia Morgan rose to prominence in the Nigerian music scene between 2014 – 2017. With hit songs like “Don’t break my heart” “Taken” and “German Juice”, Morgan easily became a household name in Nigeria.
