The dancehall star who signed with the record label in 2011 is looking at launching his own company at the start of 2014.
It was learnt that problem ensued when his debut album ‘ L.I.F.E ’dropped in August 2013. Burna Boy wasn’t pleased with the way the label handled the marketing and release of the album. Contrary to reports published by the label’s PR, Burna did NOT get a N10m upfront payment for the album. The artiste feels the label should have done better.
According to TheNETng, Burna Boy was arrested by London Police for allegedly being part of a gang and stabbing someone to death. He was tried as a minor and sent to jail. After 11 months, he was released and given two months parole plus community service on the grounds of being of ‘good behaviour’. But Burna is said to have disobeyed authorities and travelled back to Nigeria where he signed a record deal with Aristokrat.
He later travelled back to the UK but was arrested at the airport and deported to Nigeria. He is currently barred from the UK for the next 15 years.
