Benson Idonije, Burna Boy’s maternal granddad, has rubbished claim that his daughter and mother of the multiple award-winning singer, Bose Ogulu, was in the band of Afro-beat legend, Fela Anikulapo Kuti as a dancer.

Idonije, who was a star broadcaster, music critic, and was Fela’s first band manager, laid to rest the rumour in an interview with Punchng.com saying: “Burna’s Boy mother was not one of Fela’s dancers. It’s a wicked lie. The guys saying that are just being wicked and malicious. Burna’s mum never went to the shrine. They are just concocting stories.”
