One of Africa’s most talented artistes- Burna Boy has been reported to be out of control lately and has even been likened to American bad boy Chris Brown and compared to the Italian wonderkid- Mario Balotelli who have both been unpopular for their erratic antics.
Those antics- reports say- are responsible for his recently revealed 15-year ban from the United Kingdom.
‘He can’t be told anything to do, he’s a big boy right now. He won’t just listen anymore, we are frustrated with his actions’.” his label mates told NET.
Burna boy who is presently having issues with his label, Aristokrat, has not only moved out of the house provided for him by the label in Lekki Phase 1 but he has also extricated himself from them and now handles his career with a former label employee who now only answers to him (Burna).
‘He wants to be in more control of his career’, they further told the online portal.
Well, Burn Boy’s ‘uncontrollable’ mannerism and persona didn’t just start yesterday; a few months ago he allegedly attacked and slapped a ticket attendant at the Silverbird cinema, Port Harcourt.
Also, a while in the UK back in 2010, he was arrested and sent to jail by London Police for allegedly being part of a gang and stabbing someone to death.
