According to Oritse Femi, Burna Bo had told him that his home was no longer conducive for because his ‘mom was suffocating him’.

The Omolope crooner said; “Burna Boy came to live in my house after a disagreement with his mom. He dey come dey with me because he thought his mom was suffocating him in his own house. He cried to me. And said, ‘Bro, you will become somebody someday’.”

It may be recalled that Burna Boy announced in 2014 that he sacked his mother as his manager back after an internal disagreement.

He wrote; “It’s been a long road to where I am today and my mother Bose Ogulu has managed me the best she could up till this point and am grateful…at this point in my life and career, it is time to let my mother be my mother and let my manager be my manager, therefore Bose Ogulu is no longer my manager.”

Meanwhile, in another news…

Bose Ogulu earlier said she knew her son, Damini Ogulu popularly known as Burna Boy, would be great at something, since he was a teenager.

According to the talent manager, when the ‘Last Last’ hit-maker was around 13/14 years, she started seeing signs of who he would grow up to be.

She revealed that in order to manage the Grammy winner, she had to step away from the language school she was running – a decision she says she was confident in making.

Ogulu said; “I admire the diligence, the hard work but he’s still a work in progress. There are many more milestones to attain. We need to not just step down and look at what we’ve done, but keep doing more.

“I ran a language school for 18 years. I quickly understood the power of languages and the power of culture. I have known since he was probably 13 or 14 that he was going to be great at something. I had already seen him in the studio, I had already watched him form a high school band.

“From when he was in JSS3, which I think would be Year 9, we started trading studio time for grades. I would say: ‘OK, if you make a B or an A in this, I’ll pay for studio time during your mid-term’.”
