Burna Boy‘s management has finally released an official statement addressing his alleged involvement in Mr 2Kay‘s robbery at the Eko Hotels and Suites.
The statement distanced Burna Boy from the incident, noting that he had honoured the first and only invitation from the police and would be glad to help the police as best as he can.
