Grammy award-winning singer, Burna Boy, recently addressed his colleague, BNXN (formerly known as Buju), who raised questions about his source of income after Burna Boy’s recent Lamborghini purchase. In an amusing exchange captured on BNXN’s Snapchat, the two artists shared a lighthearted conversation.
In the video, BNXN playfully inquired whether Burna Boy performed a ritual to acquire the funds for his luxurious car, valued at millions of naira. Impressed by the expensive whip, BNXN went on to suggest that the legendary artist should consider opening a school to educate fellow musicians on maximizing their earnings from music.
Amidst laughter, BNXN exclaimed, “As in, when you are not doing rituals, are you whining me? You should open a school!“
Responding with a smile, Burna Boy, known for his recent sold-out performance at an 80,000 capacity stadium in the UK, playfully revealed the secret to his wealth, saying, “Kanayo O Kanayo.“
