What growing up around Fela taught me -Burna Boy’s mom, Bose Ogulu

Burna Boy’s mother and manager, Bose Ogulu, has opened up on her experience growing up around late Afrobeats pioneer, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti.

The talent manager said although she spent only a short time around Fela and his crew when she was a child, she learned valuable lessons about managing an artiste.

Mrs Ogulu stated this in a recent Famouz TV interview, where she disclosed that her father, who was Fela’s manager at the time, managed the crew as everyone approached him instead of the music legend.

She explained that she was old enough to understand that the manager holds more responsibility than the artiste, including paying the band members and handling other duties.

The Grammy winner’s mother emphasised the significance of responsible management for an artiste, and made it known that such knowledge has greatly influenced her career in the management of artistes.
