Cheating in relationships sometimes makes you lose the one person in the world that cares about you. Burna boy in a recent interview with Bellanaija stated that he is presently single – he was dumped years ago by his girlfriend for cheating.
By this time next year, where do you hope to be?
Twenty times bigger than I am now.
Do you have any celebrity crushes?
None at the moment… outside Naija, I haven’t thought about that, maybe Rihanna. Nah! Rihanna’s now somehow sef (laughs). Mehn, I don’t know again oh. Everyone has broken my heart (laughs).
Has a girl ever dumped you before?
A very very long time ago, yeah.
What caused the break-up?
I can’t even remember. I think I cheated or something but I really can’t remember.
What was the experience like for you schooling in England?
It felt like it was forever. You know what I’m saying; imagine you’re in school forever – that’s just wrong man (laughs). And then again, I just felt like that because that wasn’t in the plan for me.
Did you finish your high school in the UK?
High School? Of course I finished high school; it’s just the whole university part that took the backseat.
When was the first time you ever smoked?
Mehn, I don’t smoke now.
What you describe yourself as a fashionable person?
Hell yeah! I mean, I feel like I’m in my own lane in every aspect, especially fashion. For example, I wear Versace shades, now everybody wears Versace shades. You know the whole rocking of print shirts and bringing back the 90’s and now, it’s just catching on. So, maybe one day I’ll change it to like… futuristic and then, everyone will be doing it. You’ll see, you know. Never though, I won’t go to Will.I.Am’s extent though (laughs). That’s just a different n****.
What would you never be caught wearing?
I don’t know – something that doesn’t look good.
Do you have any style icons?
SHABBA RANKIN! Yeah, Shabba Ranks.
How would you describe your style of fashion?
Mehn, it’s me, men.
You have a lot of tattoos and they are easily one of your identifiers. What inspired you to get your first tattoo?
It’s me, man, you get me. It’s a decision that I made.
Are there some of them that mean more to you?
Every single one of them is very significant to me because everything on my body is a story so it kind of represents who I am. That’s what tattoos are all about, really – representation of one’s self artistically. I’m a big fan of art.
