In a recent conversation with Cool FM in Lagos, Nigerian artist Oluwafemi Oladapo, popularly known as Slimcase, expressed his enduring admiration for Burna Boy, whom he intriguingly considers an ever-refreshing presence in the music scene. Despite Burna Boy's decade-long tenure, Slimcase finds something perennially novel in his music, likening him to a 'new artist.'

The discussion, steered by the host and reality TV star Tacha, had Slimcase sharing his current favorite musicians, placing Burna Boy at the pinnacle of his list. His lineup of favored artists also includes prominent names such as Wizkid, Omah Lay, and Davido, whom he referred to affectionately as "Baddest."

This commentary follows a previous ripple in the industry when Davido, another heavyweight in the Nigerian music scene, categorized Burna Boy alongside rising stars like Rema, Asake, Fireboy, and Omah Lay, labeling them as "new cats." This comparison by Davido had sparked conversations and debates within the music community about the evolution and categorization of artists in the dynamic landscape of Nigerian music.
