Emmanuel Chinyere Uzoh, a US-based Nigerian show promoter is accusing singer Burna Boy and his mother Bose Ogulu of extortion and demanding a refund.
In his series of Instagram stories, Uzoh who’s the owner of Gold Moola Enter alleged that Burna Boy and his mother who is also his manager took $50,000 from him to perform at a Houston, Texas event on October 30th, but he never showed.
Uzoh called out the grammy award-winning artist via his company’s official IG account [@goldmoola], alleging that Bose Ogulu also tried to fleece him for $10,000.
“@Burnaboygram and @thenamix. Bose Ogulu attempted to extort me form $10k,” Uzoh wrote. “After the agreed sum was paid in full, she proceeded to ask for an additional $10k.
“The deposit was paid on October 7th in Los Angeles, that was when he posted this cancelled flyer. After the balance was paid in full, he posted and confirmed his attendance. That’s when Bose told me that I had to pay another $10k before he comes downstairs.”
“I realized that I was being extorted. At that point, I no longer wanted to move forward with the deal. This was around 1:10am. He was set to arrive at the club at 12:45am. Once I requested a refund of the $15,000 that was paid that night.”

“When I realized what was happening, I decided to pull from the show completely. I asked for the $15k balance that was paid on the night and they refused to return the money.
“After hours of negotiations in the hotel lobby, the entire team snuck out of the hotel through the back exit to avoid us.
“These are just the primary details of what happened on the 31st of October in Houston, Texas. Because I didn’t fall for the demands of extortion, I was robbed of over $50,000 and my name was left to be slandered in the city I love. We will allow the law to finish what they started. I pride myself on being a stand up guy, especially in the entertainment industry.
“My only demand at this point is a refund. You were paid for a service that you didn’t complete. Be a stand up guy and kindly return my money @burnaboygram.”
A few days before October 30th, the “Ye” singer had given a thrilling 2 hours performance at his Hollywood Bowl concert in Los Angeles, California.
Burna Boy and his mother are yet to respond to the allegations as of the time of this report.
