While we are getting out of the Burna Boy coachella rant,  artiste,  has come under heavy criticism after he announced himself the most hardworking new act of 2018.

Earlier, Teni the Entertainer had swept the award of the Best New Artiste at the Soundcity MVP Awards and deservedly too but  thought differently and decided to name himself the most hardworking new act of 2018 which, well, kind of rubbed off wrongly with music fans across the country and they came for him in droves.

Some fans were quite sympathetic, reminding him that yes, he had a good 2018 himself but he was no match for Teni who had back to back hits and became quite a popular and influential figure that blended street with alte music. Teni could easily have been mistaken for an established act last year. That was how big she was.
