Why I borrow prostitutes to cook for me – Burna Boy

Spread the love

Nigerian reggae-dancehall singer and songwriter, Burna Boy says he borrows prostitutes (whores) to cook for him.

That to me, is a very unusual thing to do and also a very shameful thing to say.

So while some boys were busy trying to learn some little skills from their mothers or sisters about cooking, Burna Boy was busy nurturing such thoughts?

One day be one day, monkey go go market, e nor go return…one of them will just put love portion in his meal. He should just get married jor.

Onto the matter, that was what he said recently though.

The singer, born Damini Ogulu, better known by his stage name Burna Boy, was ‘nabbed’ recently by Off Road and he was ‘forced to bake. Lol. Nice one.

From cooking up hits in the studio to whipping up cupcakes in the kitchen, Off Road took Burna Boy also known as Burna Cakes for a lesson in baking.
