Award-Winning Nigerian singers Damini Ogulu, popularly known as Burna Boy, and Abinye David Jumbo, popularly known as Mr. 2kay, have ended their rift after four years beef between the stars.
Burna Boy had made a post on his Twitter handle on the 9th of October 2017, saying “The way I genuinely dislike pastors, preachers e.t.c. I might have to knock 1 of dem d F”k out 1 of these days. I know God will be happy“.
The friction between them started when Mr. 2Kay reacted to his comment in an interview with Hip TV, saying he didn’t approve of what Burna Boy said. In his opinion, Burna Boy shouldn’t have spoken ill of pastors because they are anointed men of God.
Burna Boy, triggered, after watching the interview, allegedly sent a private message to Mr. 2Kay, which contained a threat to him.
A few days later, On Sunday, 22nd October 2017, Mr. 2kay was robbed and beaten to a pulp after the “Buckwyld N Breathless” concert which took place at the Eko Hotel and Suites. The attack was carried out by four men.
In the course of investigation, detectives arrested a lady, identified as ‘Matejero’, who was said to be the girlfriend to one of the men. This led to the capture of the others, who confessed to being responsible for the robbery and assault of Mr 2Kay.
During interrogation, the men said that they were hired by Burna Boy. They also said they received a part payment of 50, 000 Naira before the job and another 50, 000 was paid to the them directly by Burna Boy when the job was done.
This then led to Burna Boy being declared wanted by the police for questioning. He was subsequently arrested, interrogated, detained and arraigned in court.
The music stars were spotted recently in July 2022, at a nightclub hanging out together. This is the first time since 2017 that the music stars have been spotted publicly together.
