Meanwhile, as of the time of filing this report, Burna Boy is yet to confirm this on his social media accounts.
360nobs reported earlier this month that Kanye West’s “Ye” album inadvertently helped in boosting the streaming numbers of a song by the dancehall artiste and Burna Boy was all thankful.
The US rapper’s album is titled ‘Ye’ while the Nigerian singer has a song of the same name on his album, which was released in January, 2018.
