“On the first attempt I told them I wasn’t interested in talking to Burna Boy and I am married to my partner. He came again the second time and was met with the same response, he came the third time and that caused a few of our friends to flare up as they asked why he kept coming to disturb me,” she recounted.
She said this led to a fight between her friends and Burna Boy’s team. However, it was briefly resolved by the security personnel at the club.
Things took a different turn when Burna Boy’s friends started a fight again and started shooting.
