#BounceExclusive: See Why Burna Boy Will Not Appear In Court
Burna Boy seems to find it hard to stay out of trouble, but at least he is staying out of court and prison for now.
The 26-year-old versatile musician, whose real name is Damini Ogulu, does not like to let sleeping dogs lie.
In January 2015, he was involved in a pool side fight with Zimbabwean act, Bufallo Soulja in South Africa, and in May of that same year he threatened to physically harm bloggers.
While Nigerians were wondering if he was just an angry young man, Burnaboy posed with a real (not toy) gun on his Instagram page and wrote “This is not a movie or music video. Truss mi daddy.” He later deleted the picture after he was criticized by disapproving fans.
Now the singer has landed in pepper soup after allegedly sending 3 goons to assault with a fellow musician, Mr 2kay on October 22 at the famous Eko Hotel and Suites during the Bukwyld and Breathless concert.
The Lagos State Police Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohimi released a press statement and declared Burna wanted.
The attack is linked to another Burnaboy controversy, after he declared on Twitter, that even God will approve his beating up pastors and preachers.
Mr 2Kay’s offense was that he asked the Like To Party crooner to refrain from criticizing ‘Men of God’.
Presently, the 3 men responsible for the assault on Mr 2kay have been charged to court, but Burna Boy’s name was not included on the list.
"The 3 suspects were the direct people involved so their names would be there. I am looking at it from the angle that maybe, there are still investigating his role, the allegation that he facilitated it, or he gave information.
"So in the interim, because under law within 48 hours you should charge people to court, they might not have found enough evidence, or Burnaboy has not come around yet, so they have not seen reason to prosecute him” Entertainment lawyer, Akinyemi Ayinoluwa told Bounce News.
Unlike all his other controversies which die a natural death, this one will definitely 'humble' Burnaboy.
Even though he has denied any wrong doing, he is yet to submit himself to the Police for questioning.
