Billionaire Bill Gates Sparks Debate On The Popularity Of Wizkid, Davido & Burna Boy.
Bill Gates, the billionaire and founder of Microsoft, who is currently in Nigeria following the inauguration of Nigeria’s president, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, shared his thoughts on afrobeats, mentioning the popularity of Africa’s biggest stars, Wizkid, Davido, and Burna Boy.
The billionaire disclosed that his daughter had expressed excitement when she learned of his trip to Nigeria and mentioned that he would get to see some of the top stars, like Burna Boy and Rema.
The billionaire said he was unaware of the two talents because Davido and Wizkid had previously dominated the Nigerian music scene when he had last visited.
You’re lucky because you get to see Burna Boy and Rema, so I had to look them up…because I’m so ‘hip’. But I remember the last time I was here, I got to see Davido & Wizkid perform.

Bill Gates basically said (without shades) that Burna Boy and Afro beats are not widely known and have to be looked up on Google when mentioned, unlike Davido and Wizkid who are readily known and acknowledged worldwide.
A rich Cat describing new cat and old cat. Crazy 😪

Bill Gates said the last time in Nigeria some years ago, he watched Davido & Wizkid cos they were the trending musicians then.
But now, his children asked him to meet Burna Boy & Rema.
From the above, we can deduce the new & old cats from one of the Billionaires in the world.
