Burna Boy and Mum.

Award-winning Nigerian singer and songwriter, Burna Boy along side his manager mum, Bose Ogulu have been accused of extortion by US-based show promoter, Emmanuel Chinyere Uzoh.

Uzoh, the CEO of Gold Moola Entertainment via his company’s Instagram handle called out Burna Boy and his mother on Tuesday.

According to him, the singer refused to perform at a scheduled show after paying him in full. He also revealed how Burna Boy’s mom extorted him of $10,000.

He wrote: “Bose Ogulu attempted to extort me of $10,000. After the agreed sum was paid in full, she proceeded to ask for an additional $10,000(sic).

“After the balance was paid in full, he posted and confirmed his attendance. That’s when Bose told me that I had to pay another $10k before he comes downstairs.

“I realized that I was being extorted. At that point, I no longer wanted to move forward with the deal. This was around 1:10 am. He was set to arrive at the club at 12:45 am. Once I requested a refund of the $15,000 that was paid that night, (The deposit was paid on October 7th in Los Angeles) that was when he posted this cancelled flyer.”

“When I realised what was happening, I decided to pull from the show completely. I asked for the $15k balance that was paid on the night and they refused to return the money.”

“After hours of negotiations in the hotel lobby, the entire team snuck out of the hotel through the back exit to avoid us.”

Uzoh further indicated that details of the incident that transpired between him and the singer’s management were not fully captured on the Instagram story but promised that the law would take its course.

“These are just the primary details of what happened on the 31st of October in Houston, Texas. Because I didn’t fall for the demands of extortion, I was robbed of over $50,000 and my name was left to be slandered in the city I love. We will allow the law to finish what they started. I pride myself on being a stand-up guy, especially in the entertainment industry.

“My only demand at this point is a refund. You were paid for a service that you didn’t complete. Be a stand-up guy and kindly return my money @burnaboygram.”

In spite of these allegations against Burna Boy and his mother, there have been no comment or responses from his management.
