Burna Boy’s recent allegations that he turned down a $5 million deal to perform in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, UAE, because Emirati law forbids smoking in public, have been refuted by seasoned record producer Olumide Ogunade, better known by his stage name ID Cabasa.
According to Anaedoonline.ng, Burna Boy stated that he turned down a $5 million offer to play in Dubai since he wouldn’t be able to use marijuana there during a rehearsal with his band, Outsiders.
Actor Chinedu Ani Emmanuel, better known by his stage name Nedu, co-hosts The Honest Bunch Podcast. Recently, ID Cabasa answered the question, “Burna Boy rejecting $5 million because he cannot smoke in Dubai.” Does this imply that he has become so dependent on it that he is unable to do anything without smoking?”
In response, ID Cabasa said Burna Boy’s claim could be a media stunt, considering the amount of money involved.
He said, “When I saw that stuff online, two things came to my mind, and I will be truthful. I felt that it was a media stunt. That thing was not true. It’s $5 million we are talking about here.
“And if it’s actually true, Burna Boy is an adult, that is his own decision. But if I were the one that was offered $5 million―I don’t even smoke―don’t give me $5 million, just give me $3 million, I will even come to the show with extra artistes.”
