Bose Ogulu, mother to Burna Boy, has reacted to claims that her son is arrogant.
Speaking to Ebuka Obi-Uchendu on Rubbin Minds, Mrs Ogulu says she is not bothered that her son is being seen as arrogant.
“Do you mind that he is seen as arrogant, do you mind that you! are seen as arrogant with the way you run the Burna brand,” Ebuka asked.
“I don’t mind honestly, to answer that clearly, I don’t mind,” she responded.
Mrs Ogulu defended her son saying there are two meanings of arrogance. According to her, one means “knowing your worth” and carrying yourself as such and if that is what her son is, then she does not see that as a problem.
She further explained that pride is a problem.
Legendary singer Angelique Kidjo, also stood up for Burna Boy when she was asked about his “unapologetic behavior”. She said Burna should be left alone, further calling him “her boy”.
“If it was an African American that had that attitude, nobody will say anything about it.” “You leave my boy alone,” she added.
Nigerians have continued to call out the Grammy winner for his arrogance but I think it works for him.
What’s that popular line again, “hate him but you gat to love him”.
Burna Boy has continued to serve premium content to music lovers. He recently bagged a Grammy award and also a BET award.
In a recent interview with the organizers of the BET award, Burna Boy disclosed that he will be dropping his next album in August.
