Contrary to news going viral on the internet that fast-rising singer Burna Boy was deported from the United Kingdom, a close family source of the singer has informed NigeriaFilms that the singer was never deported as alleged in some sections of the media.
The family source said there is no iota of truth in the story. The source said, "I don't know why some people have dedicated themselves to bringing people down".
"The boy wasn't deported as being peddled. Infact, his student visa expired in November 2012. He came back to Nigeria in 2010 and was not deported. His passport does not have the 'deported' stamp."
Asked why Burna Boy has not performed in the UK, the source said, "we have not received any offers that can attract him to perform in the UK. Besides, Burna Boy lived in the UK and he's not in a rush to go back there."
"As at the time they claimed Burna Boy was in the UK, he was still a student in Corona School, so, how did they come about it?"
Burna Boy has enjoyed phenomena success in the Nigerian music industry since 2012 when he became visible to music lovers.
