Kanu or Okocha: ‘This is treachery’- Burna Boy refuses to pick better legend


Grammy award-winning Nigerian singer, Damini Ogulu, aka Burna Boy, has said it would be treacherous for him to choose who was a better footballer between Super Eagles legends, Kanu Nwankwo and Austin Jay Jay Okocha.


Burna Boy who performed at the Champions League final kickoff show on Saturday night, had a chat with some football legends on CBS Sports shortly after the game.


He was asked to choose who was the better player between Kanu and Okocha by Arsenal and France legend, Thierry Henry.


“I have one for you, you go Kanu or Okocha? Henry asked.


Burna Boy responded: “Don’t do this to me, man. No, I can’t do this.


“This is treachery. It is treason. I can get hanged for it.”


However, after being prodded further, Burna Boy obliged to whisper his choice to Henry.


Former England international, Micah Richards claimed he heard Okocha.


But Henry refused to announce who Burna picked, saying “I will respect this one.”


Burna Boy told Micah that he doesn’t know who he picked.
