Ogulu said she disagrees with Burna Boy often over finance-related matters.

The singer’s mother, who also serves as his manager, said this when she was asked about the topic on which she and her son, Burna Boy, have disagreed on.

According to her, when it comes to money, she and Burna Boy don’t think alike.

“We don’t think we should be spending money on the same thing.

“Burna Boy comes up with different ideas without considering the cost, especially when it comes to video shooting.

“Most times, he comes up with really crazy ideas without really thinking about what it will cost or what it doesn’t cost. And so, my first reaction would be no, that’s not going to work. How are we going to make back that money?”

Burna rose to prominence in 2012 after releasing “Like to Party”, the lead single from his debut studio album L.I.F.E (2013). In 2017, Burna Boy signed with Bad Habit/Atlantic Records in the United States and Warner Music Group internationally.

His third studio album Outsidemarked his major-label debut. In 2019, he won Best International Act at the 2019 BET Awards, and was announced as an Apple Music Up Next artist.

His fourth studio album African Giant was released in July 2019; it won Album of the Year at the 2019 All Africa Music Awards and was nominated for a Best World Music Album at the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards.

In 2021, Twice as Tall won the Best World Music Album at the 63rd Annual Grammy Awards.
