The singer who was banned from the UK for five years due to his alleged involvement in a gang related crime arrived London today, June 29, 2016 for his upcoming concert and birthday bash.

Even Heathrow Airport's official Twitter account tweeted that they couldn't wait to have him.

Recall that, it was reported Burna was banned due to his involvement in a gang related crime and subsequent “jumping bail” during parole.

However, he denied these allegations in an interview last year.

According to him, “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”.

“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”.

He is now back in London and fans have since thronged to the airport to welcome him.

Recently, Burna Boy took a shot at Nigerian bloggers, referring to them as dummies in connection to reports on his baby mama saga.

According to the singer, the bloggers who reported the story of his alleged baby mama, Uju Stella, played themselves by not confirming if the story was true.
