Stormzy to bring it down, she then asked the ‘Gbona’ crooner to keep up the bad altitude.

Burna Boy who was not pleased with the accusation then replied by tweeting;

“Own It is NOT my song.If my voice is on it however it should have been properly cleared.

If the remix wasn’t cleared with the label(Atlantic US) it automatically gets flagged.

Nothing to do with me personally or any award. Always best to reach out professionally.

Congrats on BET’s!⁣

“Oh and congrats to my brothas for life Dave, hus and stormz who I’ve made LEGENDARY

music with! We’re all nominees in the same category but UNITY will always be the real win for us!”⁣
