Buju, who now says he prefers to be professionally addressed as BNXN, has controversially stated that since he severed ties with his former boss Burna Boy, a flurry of blessings have been hurled on his path by God in a way that beats his comprehension.
The Nigerian singer whose real name is Daniel Benson, was signed to Burna Boy’s Spaceship Entertainment in 2020, but he left the record label in 2021.
He opined on Twitter that being independent has come with multiple blessings and he can’t keep quiet about it. “God blessed me x10 since I went independent 💯”, he posted.
The singer has previously informed his fans how he mutually left Burna Boy’s camp and obviously suggesting that there’s no bad blood between them.
Buju recounted; “Signing with spaceship was so amazing I got like 9m streams with my remix in April.
Burna heard my song ‘Lenu’ in the club and ‘vibed’ with it and signed me in 2020 but it was a year contract and I didn’t renew it.
I didn’t renew the contract after a year because I want to do things on my own differently. I’ve seen how it works around there and it does not necessarily flow with me.
Affiliation is great when it’s working for you.
I told Burna I wanted to do it on my own and I’ll make him proud and he told me to go along.”
