Ban? No! Burna Boy denies the allegations

“I’m not going to go into the whole story because obviously right now I am 23 years old, I am going to be 24 in July. I lived in the UK for a bunch of years before 2010 and until I was 20. Obviously my parents are not the richest in the world, and I am not the brightest kid in the world. I felt I had to do what I had to do at the time,” he said.

“I came back by myself. In the UK, nobody deported me. I didn’t try to go back again. I was booked to go back again for a show and everything, and I didn’t get the visa. The reasons why I didn’t get the visa was because I left when I wasn’t supposed to leave.”

Meanwhile, the rumours that went viral two months ago about Burna Boy’s alleged baby mama, Uju Stella, has been clarified. According to the singer, the bloggers who reported the story of his alleged baby mama, failed to confirm the authenticity of the story.

One Infamous Minded fellow tweeted via the handle @PRODEEGY, implying that the now infamous Uju is a popular Lekki Runs girl, who was just looking for some media attention and significance and Burna Boy was just her scapegoat.
