Speaking about why making music is more like therapy to him than it is business, Burna Boy said:

(Recording music is) more therapy than business — it’s business second. You can only say that if you have money. I’ve got the money. It’s not about that for me. It’s about that for my mom and my sister, though. That’s why we have arguments when it’s time to release stuff, because I just want to do what I want to do. And sometimes what I want to do is not the best thing for business

Speaking about his love for performing and dream places to perform, Burna Boy said:

It’s like I’m better at [performing] than making music. And that says a lot because I’m really good at making music. You see how with Christ, there’s B.C. and A.D.? I feel like that’s how it is for me with performing. There’s going to be a ‘Before Burna Came’ and ‘After Burna’s Death’ time period in the performing arts world. That’s my legacy.”

My dream venues, other than all the stadiums in the world, are unorthodox, like a theme park or a f–king train station. A concert in a big-ass train station, and there’s no trains and the whole tracks are filled with people. I just want to do weird sh-t like that for my own pleasure

Speaking about his new album Love Damini, turning 31, and reflecting on life, Burna Boy said:

[Love, Damini], that’s how I like to sign all my letters, because I didn’t know the proper [signoff]. It’s a bit personal [because] it’s bringing you into my head on my birthday — when you turn 31 and ain’t got no kids, everything is going good and bad at the same time. You reflect and then you get as lit as possible. Then you sleep and wake up and reflect again. I’m reflecting on everything — what I’m doing and what’s happening where I’m from. Where I’m from is a part of where I’m going.

Before Shatta Wale could bend both his knees, Addo-Yobo held the musician and asked him to take his seat while expressing shock at Shatta’s actions and demeanour and and the lady among them who stated that it was unnecessary wasn’t the reason for their gathering.

The” Gringo” hitmaker had been billed to perform at the Hogbetsotso Beach Rave festival in Tegbi in the Volta Region, an event sponsored by Ebony Condoms on November 8, 2022.

According to reports, Shatta who was billed as the headliner of the event had made it to the town for the festival, however, due to a scuffle between him and one of the event organiser about an appearance for an interview, Shatta left.

It was said to be a chaotic scene as disappointed fans who were gathered at the venue attacked some organisers by pelting stones at them and destroying their gadgets.

Stating his own side of the story, the Dancehall artiste expressed that he was disrespected by the organizers.

Hitting on his point, Shatta asserted that he was driven directly to a radio station to grant an interview when he already had an agreement with organizers that he would not participate in such an arrangement or even greet any chief.

He added that one of the organizers threatened to withhold his accommodation if he fails to grant the interview and that was when he took off.
