Oluwajuwonlo Iledare, better known by his stage name Jaywon, is a Nigerian singer who has spoken his thoughts regarding musicians who maintain that no one paved the way for them.

On his Teju Babyface podcast appearance, the songwriter talked about Burna Boy in particular.

He said: “Burna is talented, everything, but when it comes to that attitude, it’s like Burna saying ‘nobody paved the way for me’. How can you say that? It’s a very wrong thing to say. You don’t understand. It’s madness.”
