Burna Boy’s mum and his talent manager, Bose Ogulu, has disclosed the lessons she got from growing up around Fela, the legendary singer.

According to her, she learnt responsible management from being around Fela.

She said this during a recent interview, in which she explained that a strong management team is paramount for an artist’s success.

She explained that even at a young age, she understood that Fela’s manager, Benson Idonije, who is her father, had more responsibilities than the artist.

She emphasised the importance of proper management for an artist, stating that it has significantly influenced her current profession in artist management.

“A manager is more responsible than the artist,” Ogulu is quoted as saying.

“You need to have responsible management that you respect for you to do well.”

The interviewer further asked,

“You grew up around Fela, did that have any influence on the woman you have become, What was it like being around them?

Bose responded, saying, “I think I spent a very short time around them, I was a baby, but I was old enough to realise that a manager was more responsible than the artist and his responsibility. The owner of the band paid the manager, not the artist. I saw them never go to Fela for anything; they went to my father.

“For anything, that’s the only thing that remained helpful in what I am doing today, where it’s kind of in my mind that you need to have responsible management that you respect for you to do well, because I saw that firsthand as a little child.
