Nigerian comedian and show promoter, Freedom Okpetoritse Atsepoyi, popularly known as Mr Jollof, has claimed that singer Burna Boy rejected N1 billion to perform at a concert organised by him and some investors in Warri, Delta State.

He said they had reached out to the singer’s team with an offer of $1 million (N1.3 billion) but his team rejected it on the grounds that it was below what the singer charges.


The comedian disclosed this in a recent Instagram post.

Mr Jollof wrote in Pidgin English, “Me and some investors reached out to Burna Boy’s team for a concert in Delta State for One Million US Dollars (1.3 billion Naira today’s rate). Guess what? They said it’s too small.


“Burna Boy no dey Nigeria lane again oo because we didn’t utilise him enough before he was exported to the global music market. No jokes.”
