HARARE - Buffalo Souljah has promised to hit back at Nigerian dancehall artiste, Burna Boy, who allegedly attacked him at an all-white party held by rapper Da Les in South Africa.
The Zimbabwean multi-continental award winning artiste came out guns blazing against the Nigerian artiste, in the latest beef to hit Africa’s dancehall scene.
“It is not over, I will get my retaliation, trust me,” Big Buff, as he is affectionately known, said. “I am a real bad man and it is never over. We will get to the bottom of this; they do not call me Buffalo Souljah for nothing.
“I am the king of African Dancehall, and it will remain so am telling you. I had never mentioned your name till today Burna Boy. You are going to get burned trust me, bomboclat. This brother came and broke everything, my expensive watch, my chains, everything. Disrespecting me in front of the whole media and people in the entertainment industry, humiliating me.
“But let me get something clear he did not touch me, because no boy can touch me. The security and bouncers pushed me, but he did not touch me. I told him that I would be back. I came back. I have people everywhere. I have brethren from all over. I told him that if you want to do a gang thing, we will do the gang thing. If you want to do it like a man we will do it one on one,” he said.
Responding to Big Buff’s Twitter rant, Burna Boy said: “F**k beef and twitter chat I ain’t even gunna help ur career by sayin ur name on twitter. See me wen u see me p**y. On sight!’.”
Buff said the Nigerian dancehall artiste was just seeking attention.
“If he had issues with me why didn’t he take to me when I was at Dar Les’ house where he is squatting?,” Buff said. “I was there and he did not talk to me, why did he wait for us to be in the public?”
In a five-minute long video posted on You Tube, Buff as he is best known, explained what happened at the party. “This boy came to disrespect me in my town,” he said.
“I was just there chilling; he came to the VIP at the party and grabbed my hand and said I want to talk to you. We started walking with four of his boys walking behind us. Then he said I heard you are talking bad things about me and I was like I don’t know what you are talking about, did I ever mention your name? I said did I ever mention your name, you come here with your second hand information and you start disrespecting the King of African dancehall. He started jumping and wanted to get violent. Then two of his people started pulling me back as if I was the one starting the fight. If I wanted to fight I would come with 50 people. I was chilling with my artiste Queen Vee,” he said.
He said the Nigerian artistes’ violence was unwarranted.
“He wanted to sucker punch me, real badmann don’t try to sucker punch. I am from the streets, from Mufakose, a real ghetto boy. I come from the roughest toughest ghettoes in Zimbabwe. Fifteen (15) years I was in Hillbrow in South Africa, the roughest toughest ghetto in South Africa, before I moved to the north I still have my goons, I still have my people.”
