Personal Life

Born Damini Ebunoluwa Ogulu on July 2, 1991, in Port Harcourt, Nigeria, Burna Boy grew up in a musical family. His grandfather was a renowned music promoter and his mother, Bose Ogulu, is his manager and a former dancer. Burna Boy attended Corona Secondary School in Agbara, Lagos, before relocating to London for further studies. He dropped out of the University due to his passion for music and began pursuing a career in the industry. Burna Boy’s stage name was inspired by his classmates who often teased him for his love of comic books, specifically one character named Burna Boy. In 2013, he was involved in a robbery incident in Lagos, which influenced his decision to take his music career more seriously. Burna Boy has been in a long-term relationship with British rapper Stefflon Don since 2019. He is a vocal advocate for pan-Africanism and often speaks out against social injustices. Burna Boy practices the Yoruba religion and incorporates its elements into his music and performances.

Confiscating His Phone

After issuing a critical comment about Davido, musician Burna Boy revealed that his disciplinary committee had confiscated his mobile device.

Burna Boy made headlines earlier today for mocking fellow musician Davido in response to a fan of the “30-BG” who criticized him for not winning all of his Grammy nominations.

A supporter of Davido called Burna Boy “Ode” and mocked him for not receiving all four Grammy nominations, sparking controversy on Burna Boy’s social media page.

In his typical assertive manner, Burna Boy responded to the comment by stating that the individual in the profile picture of the Davido fan was the one truly deserving of ridicule. Shortly afterward, Burna Boy took to Twitter to announce that his phone had been confiscated—presumably by his mother—in an effort to prevent him from causing further controversy online.
