Olakira finally acquires a Maserati



Olakira who released the catchy groundbreaking hit single last year June titled In My Maserati, a song which had him show off his wooing skills but unlike the cheesy pick-up line go-to used by other guys, Olakira flexed and simply asked the girl to “Hop in my Maserati”. The song even became more of a hit when Davido jumped on it, adding a verse to the remix, which was simplified as Maserati, instead of it’s original three-word title.

It is September of 2021, a year and 3 months since the original release of Olakira’s debut hit single and what better way to celebrate the blessings that came forth from it, than buy spoiling himself. Olakira does this by actually acquiring a Maserati car for himself.

The blue coloured speed beauty, a Maserati Lavante Hybrid 2021 model costs about $78,290 (USD) (according to, an approximate 32,216,335.00 in naira; Olakira captions this “A dream come through, we rave in a maserati now!!

Since Maserati, Olakira has gone on to release other singles including his sophomore EP—”4play”—in May of this year. Congratulations to him.

Burna Boy did not sellout the 02 arena, attendees claim



Nigerian musician—Burna Boy—was the talk of the town on Friday, 27th of August for his energetic performance at the 02 arena, London which he confirmed via several posts on his Instagram that it was a shutdown event as advertised. Shortly after his very lively stage presence, Burna Boy wrote on his story: “I Sold OUT the 02 by myself. At the prices I wanted. The way I wanted. Never talk much, Just show Action !” (sic) in a bid to cancel the rumours circulating the internet about his ‘Space Drift Tour’ which held in the UK not being a sold out event.

Much to the surprise of many today, Diane, a violinist who performed at the grand show went on her Instagram and wrote that it was actually a total of 12,000 people who attended the show as opposed to the maximum 20,000 seat capacity in the 02. Diane’s post (probably unknowingly to her) has started an online trend where attendees and fans of Burna Boy have come out in support of her and agreed to the fact that the 02 performance by Burna Boy was not a shutdown event.

A user by the handle @shonibay attests: “I was there – the ahow was really good but it didn’t sell out” yet another writes: “Boxes were empty. Seats were empty but the vibe and energy was there. So you pipol keep screaming sold out. Like say you were there mctchewww.” (sic) per @TopeTops. The most confusing tweet of all and yet-to-be confirmed claim according to @RonxxO reads thus: “Getting into burna boy’s concert for free was actually the highlight of august [ROTFL emoji] Friday was too lit I want to rewind time bro” (sic).

In an effort to dispute Burna Boy’s brag of selling out the 02 arena, one thing stands out among his fans and that is the fact they all testify to the electric performance by the African Giant singer. A commendable attitude! As of the time of writing, neither Burna Boy nor his camp have come out to say whether the claims are true or false. So is Burna Boy or the attendees to be believed?
