Nigeria singer, Damini Ebunoluwa Ogulu professionally known as Burna Boy, has once again left social media users talking and this time, he is letting everyone know he is worth more than $3.5m (1.365b).
According to Forbes, the 29-year-old Rivers born Afrobeats singer is worth $3.5 million. He has now taken to Snapchat to react saying that $3.5 million won’t even buy his cars.
Reacting to the report, he revealed that his cars alone were worth more than that. The singer who contemplated showing off his possessions, stated that it wasn't in his nature to do so.
He went on to reveal that it was around the time he recorded one of his hit songs, All Eyes On Me in 2014, that he was worth that amount.
“They said I’m worth $3.5Million, that won’t even buy my cars. I might have to start doing some showing off. Nah, That’s not me. Imma just let u run with whatever ur blog tells u. $3.5 tho. I’m dead. Fun fact; By the time I recorded “All eyes on me” I was dancing around that 3.5 level,” he wrote.
