Nigerian rapper Burna Boy finds himself in the midst of controversy as reports surfaced that he cheated on British musician Stefflon Don. According to reports, Burna Boy dumped Stefflon for Princess Shyngle, a Ghana-based Gambian actress. The news, which is yet to be confirmed by any of the parties involved, was first posted on Instagram by the page Instablog9ja.
The page quoted an insider saying, “Burna Boy has fully returned to actress Shyngle, who he started dating in 2018 and never really left, despite his affair with Stef.” In July, Steffon had said, “Burna Boy is my baby. This is my ring. Next time, it would be his on my finger. I mean, he told me. I’m not just making things up. He’s Nigerian and you know Nigerian weddings are really big. I love Nigerian culture, its amazing.” A month later, the ‘Wonderful’ rapper hinted that he would love to raise a child with Steffon without attracting public attention. He said, “It’s not the business part of us, it’s our life. I’m trying to make it right because I don’t want to bring a kid into this life and everyone is disturbing the kid, wondering what Stefflon Don and Burna Boy’s kid doing. I want to raise a kid the way I was raised.”
Burna Boy added, “Being with Stefflon Don is lovely. I don’t know how to explain it. It’s just that I try to now kind of like keep it between us. I don’t want to be putting our thing out there in front of everybody anymore. Like you’d be there and you can see it but I don’t want to put it out there for everyone.” The reports have not been confirmed by any of the stars involved in the controversy.
Twitter reacted swiftly to the unverified reports with one user saying, “Burna boy dated his side chic and Stefflon Don for two years. What if the side chic was the main chic and Stefflon Don was the side chic?” while another tweeted, ” To be honest, who knows Burna might have done this on purpose to free himself from his girl and her family boy because there’s a lot going on over there right now.” Another wrote, “Burna Boy cheated? Guess he couldn’t keep it on the low.”
A different user, along with a meme, said, “Burna Boy thinking if he’s cheating on Steff with the side chic or he’s cheating on the side chic with Steff,” while another tweeted, “I dunno who is the side chic between Steff London and Jo Pearl but I know they both love Burna Boy.”
