Burna Boy….has been sooooo successful after his first album LIFE he dropped under his former record label Aristocrat.
This is due to the undeniable fact that since the emergence of the dancehall king in the music industry Burna Boy has been feeding his loyal fans with nothing but good songs.
Music runs deep in the lineage of Burna Boy. His grandfather Benson Idonije was fela’s manager and his professional music career is currently managed by his mother who rumours has it that she was one of fela’s numerous exotic dancers. But she distance herself from such claims
With all this strong musical background there is little chance for failure for Burna Boy.
Nothing good comes easy. Everything that has a sweet side must have a bitter side as far as the law of cause and effect exists.

Burna Boy… born Damini Ebunoluwa Ogulu in Port Harcourt Nigeria in the year 1991 is one of the biggest music export from Nigeria.
His first hit song “Like to Party” took the industry by storm and since then it has been one hit after the other. His youthful and vibrant fanbase eagerly clamours for more Burna Boy jams that never fail to turn up…. especially in the club.
In 2013 Burna dropped his life changing album LIFE… L.I.F.E. the album featured top acts like Olamide, Wizkid, MI and 2baba.
Later his label Aristocrat sold the album for 10 million Naira to UBA Pacific in Alaba that was after the album already sold 40 thousand copies nationwide.
In the same year 2013 TheNetng and Guardian.ng reported that Burna Boy’s gang stabbed a boy to death in London. He was tried as a minor and was sentenced to jail where he spent 11 good months, I repeat 11 good months in jail before he was released on parole.
After his release he travelled back to Nigeria and signed a deal with Aristocrat Record.
This news of him being jailed in London has been denied by the African Giant.
Back in lagos Burna Boy was on the run for 30 good days, Because the lagos state police command was looking for him for being the mastermind behind Mr 2kay’s robbery and assault at Eko Hotel.
Mr. 2kay and Burna Boy has been having some underground beef for some time and no one in the industry knew it until Mr. 2kay was attacked in his room in Eko Hotel where he was to rest before and after his performance in Bulk Wide and Reckless show by 2baba.
In that same year Mr. 2kay told the Pulse that Burna Boy has called him to apologise for his misconduct.
Fast forward to 2018 the Burna released a high grossing album titled “Outside” this album has “Ye” that was internationally successful and fetched him some prestigious awards.
As a talented musician that he is, in 2019 he dropped his African Giant album. It was this album that got him nominated for Grammy and his good work was confirmed on a global market.
In this same year Burna Boy had some serious life threatening encounter with AKA… a South African A-list rapper. This was because of the xenophobia attack on Nigerians in their country.
It was so serious that AKA warned Burna Boy not to come to his city if he loves his life, this was a reply to Burna Boy‘s claim that he will never visit South Africa again because of the way they treated Nigerians living in their country.
After that in 2020 Burna Boy has been having some minimal encounter with his friends and fans alike.
In May of 2020 Burna Boy and davido indirectly poke each other. Few days later a video surfaced of Burna Boy and his father being whisked away by nigerian police….they said he was disturbing the peace of his neighbours in his new lekki mansion where Ighalo the ace footballer was also a resident.
Few days into the same week Burna Boy debunk the news with an epic photo with his dad.
That is a wrap for the criminal history of Burna Boy.
