Burna Boy and his mother have reacted to claims by Uju Stella that Burna Boy impregnated her.
In Burna Boy’s initial reaction to the claim, he denied the accusation. However, he acknowledged he slept with her, but only once and therefore, he could not have put her in the family way.
Later on, days after Uju Stella made the disclosure that she was pregnant for the singer, in a new interview, he revealed that his most prized possession is his penis.
As if that was not enough, in an interview with Punch Magazine, his mother, Bose Ogulu who is also his manager aired her take on the pregnancy claim. In her reply, she condemned Stella for reaching out to a blogger and not Burna Boy’s family first. During the interview, she also reinforced Burna Boy’s commitment to music.
She said “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. 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 see 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”
