|Hot producer Orbeat who produced Soke for Burna Boy.|
Burna Boy and Orbeat have been acting bad online in a move that reflects the song they are fighting over.Burna Boy and his producer Orbeat, who produced one of his biggest hits Soke ,are engaging in a war of words.In a year that has seen unprecedented beefing among Nigerian entertainers,Burna Boy and Orbeat continue the tradition.The cause of their beef apparently is Burna releasing a song which Orbeat said had not been cleared by him.Burna claims the song called "Acting Bad" was actually leaked.
Apparently, the song was produced by Orbeat – the same brain behind Burna’s hit single, ‘Soke’ – with the payment incomplete.
Despite the singer crediting the producer as being the brain behind the production of the song, Orbeatwent on an unapologetic Twitter rant today, lashing out at Burna Boy for releasing the song without his consent and owing full payment for previous works.The fight has gotten really nasty with Burna calling Orbeat a crack head and Orbeat replying that Burna should ask his mother who the real crack head is.I really don't understand exactly what that last statement means.Here are some of the exchanged tweets between Burna Boy and Orbeat below...
“Acting Bad” was produced by @Orbeat_Official same genius behind the “Soke” instrumentals.— Burna Boy #OAS (@burnaboy) May 3, 2016
Burna’s acknowledgment of Orbeat wasn’t enough to placate the seemingly aggrieved producer who would go on to tweet:
@burnaboy u are one of the most talented artists I’ve worked it in my career. But releasing acting bad without my consent and approval. SAD— Orbeat (@Orbeat_Official) May 4, 2016
I don’t blame u @burnaboy cos our judiciary in this country is a joke. U can’t just keep disrespecting people. Who have helped ur career— Orbeat (@Orbeat_Official) May 4, 2016
@burnaboy soke is one of ur biggest songs in ur career right now internationally. U cut me off the digital sales. After our agreement— Orbeat (@Orbeat_Official) May 4, 2016
@burnaboy I have not been paid for my work tho on ur album. Ur mum has declined to pay me since she took over ur career— Orbeat (@Orbeat_Official) May 4, 2016
Sad thing @burnaboy. U really undermined me.— Orbeat (@Orbeat_Official) May 4, 2016
I actually let the debt slide. But u have no right to release my material without my consent. Character flaw is not same as stupidity— Orbeat (@Orbeat_Official) May 4, 2016
Timayas sanko was number one when I made soke for u. Steal from u? How much u get? Buy G wagon owe ur staffs for 4 months.— Orbeat (@Orbeat_Official) May 4, 2016
U fake as ur dreads man. And I say it again. Let’s ask ur mother who the crack head is. @burnaboy— Orbeat (@Orbeat_Official) May 4, 2016
Reading on blogs wen u claimed I leaked the song makes u more of an idiot cos I already released my own materials with same beat weeks ago.— Orbeat (@Orbeat_Official) May 4, 2016
Meanwhile, upon the song’s release yesterday, Burna had claimed the song was unfinished and was a leak.
“Acting Bad” was actually made in January 2015. I know it’s but It is not my new single,its unfinished nd has been leaked somehow.— Burna Boy #OAS (@burnaboy) May 3, 2016
It was recorded from a place of a lotta anger, we r still investigating how but it Leaked now. as unfinished as it is, it’s still so enjoy— Burna Boy #OAS (@burnaboy) May 3, 2016
However, in what appears like a response to Orbeat’s Twitter rant today, the ‘Abeg Abeg’ hit maker has seemingly referred to the producer as being ‘fake’.
Talk about me, laugh behind my back but to my face U some well wishing snakes with ur hands out for my Money, man how much can I Take?— Burna Boy #OAS (@burnaboy) May 4, 2016
