The mother of Burna Boy, Bose Ogulu has been named one of the ‘International Power Players’ for 2021 by Billboard.
Mrs. Ogulu who also doubles as Burna’s manager was announced on the shortlist on April 26, 2021. We guess you aware that she’s the Executive Producer for Burna Boy’s Grammy-winning album, Twice As Tall.
The citation accompanying her recognition reads;
“Amid the pandemic, Ogulu co-executive-produced, released and promoted the Twice As Tall album from Nigeria’s breakout global star Burna Boy (aka her son, Damini Ogulu). “He is signed to Bad Habit/Atlantic in the United States and Warner Music International for territories outside of Africa.
“Twice As Tall won best global music album at this year’s Grammy Awards. Bose has set up a publishing company through Spaceship Collective to enable Africans to own their own catalogs “so that the authenticity of our stories, our glory, our culture is sustained,” she says, “and we are empowered.”
While acknowledging this rare recognition on her Instagram platform, Madam Bose exuded much happiness for this new chapter opened in her life. She wrote;
“Honored to have made it to Billboard’s 2021 international power player list. Looking forward to breaking down more doors.”
In a related development, fans of Nicki Minaj, generically called Barbz have dug their fangs into the skin of UK rapper Steflon Don who happens to be the girlfriend of Burna Boy for sounding like their idol in a new freestyle video shared on Instagram.
The freestyle posted on the singer’s Instagram page with the caption “Crocodile Teeth Fi a Fake Friend”, captures the moment the girlfriend of Nigerian singer Burna Boy dropped bars heavily punctuated by her thick Jamaican accent as she talks about fake friends and liking “bad man.”
Although she really did well, fans looked beyond to it fire her for copying Nicki and not paying homage.
One Nicki stan commented, “To dislike Nicki so much she sholl look and sound just like her….” The comment was partially in reference to Stefflon’s blue and green pastel-colored hair. Nicki Minaj was the first female rapper to embrace pastel-colored hair, with her signature pink tresses.

Many, including BBNaija star, Bisola Aiyeola felt his post was insensitive and came hard on him.
Responding via his Instagram page to the criticism, Reno wrote that most of the male prisoners are from single mothers.
”Yesterday, I said unless she was raped, widowed, or escaping an abusive husband, I have no sympathy for single mothers. Some people took offence. Single motherhood is devastating the Black Race.
“It may be convenient for you. But is it convenient for your child? 78% of all babies born to African American women are born by single mothers. In New York, more Black babies are aborted than are born. No other race has such SHAMEFUL statistics.
“If my sexual purity teaching annoys you, I invite you to visit the motherless babies home God helped me build, to see the effects of premarital sex. The Black world should stop pretending this is not a challenge. No other race has such an abysmal rate of single mothers. ‘
Most Black males in prison come from single mothers! ”he wrote
