Why I terminated my contract with Burna Boy – Buju reveals
Fast-rising music star, Daniel Benson better known as Buju opens up on why he decided not to extend his contract with the Grammy winner, Burna Boy.
Buju was signed to Burna Boy’s label, Spaceship Collective in 2020 and released ‘Lenu’ remix with Burna Boy.
However, in an interview with Hip TV, the singer disclosed that he refused to extend the contract which ended in 2021 because he wanted to do things differently.
According to him, he told Burna Boy about it and he consented to his decision.
In his words:
“Signing with spaceship was so amazing I got like 9m streams with my remix in April
“Burna heard my song ‘Lenu’ in the club and ‘vibed’ with it and signed me in 2020 but it was a year contract and I didn’t renew it.
“I didn’t renew the contract after a year because I want to do things on my own differently. I’ve seen how it works around there and it does not necessarily flow with me.
“Affiliation is great when it’s working for you.
“I told Burna I wanted to do it on my own and I’ll make him proud and he told me to go along.”
