Grammy award-winning artist Burna Boy on Saturday tweeted that his kids will “confidently beat their chest and say ‘Daddy did it on his OWN, we can do it on our own.'”

The Port-Harcourt-born star apparently was alluding to his win at the Grammys last Sunday where he picked up the award for Best Global Music Album.

In the following tweet, he added: “When you KNOW yourself. NOBODY can tell you about yourself. KNOW YOURSELVES and never go against yourself.”

He then mocked people who thought he would not win the much-coveted Grammys.

“GOD is most definitely NOT A MAN,” the tweet said. “I will never forget how so many of you prayed that I don’t win. Too dumb to understand that you also win if I win. No worry This is just the beginning. God is Great.”


Burna Boy, whose real name is Damini Ebunoluwa Ogulu, is famous for his provocative tweets as much as his widely-acclaimed music.

“God bless everyone/anyone who has stood with me! Let’s keep making history!” he added in a later tweet.
