In her post, she revealed she almost lost her record deal because she refused to work with a different artists for her Simatinya music video.
The post reads “To me Burna Boy was the biggest artist in Africa when I picked him for Simatinya video.
“And I remember almost losing my record deal with Jude okoye’s label for standing my ground that it was only Burna Boy I wanted and no one else”
“I know alot you love living in lies either due to tribalism or personal hatred but please I never want to see my name in any sentence that has to do with a Burna boy slander.”
She ended the post with a statement implying Burna Boy is just holding on to her crown for her and will return it when she returns to music.
“He is the best and biggest artist in Africa till I PICK the mic again” she wrote.
