Burna Boy: I'm not yet ready for kids

He added that he would start having kids when he’s more settled and can be there for them every day. Burna also said that even if he can’t have kids, science has made it easy to do so.

Award-winning singer, Damini Ogulu, popularly known as Burna Boy, has stated why he does not want to have kids yet.


Burna Boy said he was not ready to be a father yet because he could not give the kids the attention they rightfully deserve.

He made this statement during a question and answer session during a recent Instagram live session with his fans.

The ‘African Giant’ hitmaker explained that he would have children when he is fully settled.

He said: “Why haven’t I had kids yet? Bro, because I don’t want to have kids yet.

“Have you seen my mum the way she loves me? Have you seen my dad the way he loves me? I know I can’t give that to anyone right now with the life I’m living. So until I’m settled and I can be there for my children everyday, I’m not having a kid.


“I feel like my kids deserved better than I got. And I got both my mum and dad so you understand?”

Speaking on the allegations that he is impotent, Burna Boy said: “When I see the bants and the things people say [about me not being able to have kids], I said this is unimportant. Let’s assume that it is true that I couldn’t even have kids, you know that there’s something called IVF? But that is not even true.”
