Following the conversations and debates between both prominent artistes Burna Boy and Reekado Banks and their fans on Twitter, MTV decided to match both musicians against each other on its channel with the hashtag #mtvfaceoff. Both artists songs were aired on Mtv’s music DSTV channel 320 at the early hours of 9am – 11am on Friday April 3rd.
The face-off had come as a result of Burna boy’s tweet where he challenged any Nigerian Artist to go head to head with him on hits made and growth in the music industry. Reekado Banks had jokingly accepted the challenge as he quoted the tweet of Burna Boy and requested for a duel of songs. Burna Boy responded by laughing off his request and telling him (Reekado Banks) that he isn’t a worthy competitor which did not sit well with most fans who tagged him as proud and arrogant on their Twitter pages. Thankfully Reekado Banks had not taken such comments to heart as he quoted Burna’s tweets saying he wasn’t taking any offence. After the exchange however there was still no competition between both musician which fans craved for.
Thus, MTV Base seizing such opportunity decided to square both Artists against each other on it’s channel by playing the songs of both artists to show they have both been a blessing to the music industry in Nigeria and also showed Reekado Banks as a worthy competitor.
Thankfully there is no beef between both Musicians as they both still have mutual respect for each other.
