Last week, Nigerians woke up to the shocking news that reggae musician, Burna Boy was declared wanted by the Nigerian police following confessions by armed robbers who attacked singer, Mr. 2Kay that they were contracted by the singer to teach him a lesson. However, Nigerians had barely recovered from the shock when another story went viral that the singer has been banned from entering the UK for the next 15 years due to alleged criminal activities.
According to an online report: “Burna Boy has a bad criminal past in the United Kingdom. We learnt he was a part of criminal drug gang who stabbed someone to death back in 2010. He was arrested and after 11 months in jail, he was released and given two months parole with community service.
It was during his community service that he disobeyed and left the United Kingdom for Nigeria. He travelled back few years later and was arrested from the airport and deported back to Nigeria. He has since been placed on a 15-year ban.”
