In the captivating footage, the interviewer settled in for a chat with none other than Burna Boy, accompanied by his mother and esteemed grandfather, Benson Idonije – a notable figure as Fela’s manager in days past.

Amidst his mother, Bose Ogulu’s recounting of her time in Fela’s crew as the daughter of the iconic late singer’s manager, the interviewer eagerly sought Burna’s perspective.
Burna Boy, in an act of pure audacity, stood up and said: “This is boring” and walked out on them.The scene was a mixture of astonishment and chagrin, prominently displayed on the countenance of his mother.
