An Instagram user, Uju Stella, recently alleged that Burna Boy impregnated and abandoned her. The singer's mom now says they are paying no attention to that.
Burna Boy however posted a video on his Instagram page where he lip-synced a song which has lyrics about sleeping with a girl only once and getting claims that she has become pregnant.
The Instagram post has been widely interpreted as the singer's way of mocking the lady.
The singer's mother, Bose Ogulu, who also acts as his manager has now gone on record, claiming that although they have seen the reports on the internet, her son is not paying attention to the allegations, and would rather spend his energy on furthering his music career.
In a chat published in Punch newspaper yesterday, May 21st, she said, “My son has never said anything concerning the issue, he has never said a word, maybe there was a song at the background of the video that he posted online but he has never said a word concerning the issue. What you know is what we know basically and my take on it is that we would rather just focus on his music which primarily affects his life than that.
"In Africa, it is not a criminal offence for someone to be pregnant for somebody. If somebody says that she is pregnant for somebody and the person refuses to accept it, you look for his family instead of tagging a blogger. We have nothing to say to her. We don’t know anything about any child. She can never come to me, she has already gone to the blogger; she can never come to me.”
According to her, it is not uncommon to see and hear of opportunistic ladies who usually accuse young male celebrities of being responsible for their pregnancies.
“It is not new; these girls come up from time to time with different claims. My position on this is ‘no comment’. Anybody can claim anything that they want to claim. We have absolutely nothing to say, Burna Boy is a musician and we want to focus on his music. Nobody has time for her.
"We saw all the reports online but we just chose to look the other way. In this industry, girls are always coming up with pregnancy claims, we see it every day. We are not bothered and we have no comment. We just recently premiered a new video during the week and it is enjoying massive airplay. We are focusing on the music and nothing else,” she said.
