Nota Baloyi revealed an incident that took place in Los Angeles, where he and AKA came across Burna Boy. According to Nota, Burna Boy walked right past them as if he didn’t see them. Nota then attempted to approach Burna Boy to greet him, but AKA pulled him back, indicating that their relationship was already strained at that point.
I was with Kiernan in LA when Burna Boy wanted right past us like he didn’t see us… I got up to tell him it’s rude not to greet then Kiernan pulled me back & said, leave him. He went on to win a BET Award the next night & his mother had to accept it because her brat disappeared!
