Lagos State Police PRO, DSP Bala Elkana,  debunked the viral news and clearly stated that Burna Boy was not arrested yesterday, Sunday, May 24, as the reports online claims.

He added, “We don’t have such a case as reported online now. The reports online claim that he was arrested yesterday by our men but it’s not true. We don’t have such reports. That is my confirmation.”

There’s been no word from Burna Boy or his team regarding the news.

Born in Abeokuta, Ogun State, Johnson’s passion for music has been from childhood, just like many before him. Music was his first love but his education inevitably had to come first.

To him, primary school came and finished like a flash – with tiny recollection of memories. Secondary school was more vivid as he had off-and-on moments with music but he says it was nothing serious as his typical African parents prioritised his academic education.

University, however, presented ‘Dami Johnson’ an opportunity to explore his musical potentials as this was the only time he had a semblance of independence albeit stifled by a ton of rules and regulations of the institution. He was admitted into Bowen University, Iwo, Osun State, to study Mass Communication. Johnson says the admission compelled him to have two ultimate goals – graduate with good grades and to hone his musical skill and be known for it amongst his peers.

The first goal was to make his parents happy. The second was for his own happiness. He graduated and his music resonated beyond the lecture halls of Bowen University, it warmed the hearts of his contemporaries.
