Mr 2kay Explains Why He Dropped Attempted Murder Case Against Burna Boy

Recall that Mr 2Kay was robbed at gunpoint in his hotel room at the Eko Hotel and Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos, in 2017, during the “Buckwyld N Breathless” concert where he also performed. It later came to the public knowledge that Burna Boy was the one that sent thugs to attack him that night.

When asked why he withdrew the case, Mr 2kay said Burna Boy sought his forgiveness, adding that several esteemed personalities reached out to him before he decided to settle out of court with him.

“The incident happened about four years ago. We went back and forth on the case for some time. At some point, the guys who carried out the attack were arrested and they were locked up for over two years. Their parents and Burna Boy’s people kept begging. At the end of the day, I decided to withdraw the case out of court. A lot of people that I respect, including my godfather (Tonye Princewill), and kinsmen reached out to me. I listened to those people and withdrew the case.

“He (Burna Boy) reached out to me to apologise when the case was very ‘hot’. He actually called me, though that part was never put out in the public. It was quite a long conversation and he apologised,” Mr 2kay told Punch.


When asked what caused the spat between them, Mr 2kay said: “I cannot really give you all the details. To be honest with you, I have taken my mind off it because, at some point, it was affecting me mentally. Whenever I heard doors opening or I saw people with guns, flashes of the incident came back to me. However, I think it all started from an interview when a journalist asked me a question and I answered. But, he (Burna Boy) did not get it the right way. He flared up and it led to something else. We then exchanged some messages on social media before the incident happened.”


On whether there was any prospect of collaboration between them in the future, the “God Can Bless Anybody” singer said: “I cannot say for now but I am in talks with his mum, who doubles as his manager. I don’t have any direct contact with Burna Boy at the moment.” he said.
