Was it shade? 

Was it real? 

Fans noticed a not so “loving” IG Story post from brother Love, aka Diddy’s account. The post came after Burna Boy didn’t take home the Best Global Music Album category at the 2023 Grammy Awards.

The alleged post from Diddy’s IG said, “I helped you win your first and only Grammy award, which I did out of kindness, and somehow you thought you could win another without my help? Oh okay.”

For context, Diddy was co-executive producer for Burna’s 2020 album Twice as Tall. Burna won a Grammy for Best Global Music Album for it last year. Although Burna’s 2022 album, Love Damini, was nominated again this year in the same category, the winner went to Masa Takumi for Sakura.

Diddy responded to a blog post and said the initial post from his account was “fake.” Take a look:

Social media reactions, some fans don’t want the two artists beefing. However, some online users don’t think the post was real to begin with. One person Tweeted, “The whole Africa about to drag Diddy over Burna Boy.” Someone else said, “Nope! Diddy never posted it. It’s a certain fanbase that created the fake screenshot. They do it all the time. Davido used to be the victim of their online misinformation schemes. Now it’s Burna Boy,” and ended with, “Just think about it… why would Diddy even post that?”
