Grammy award-winning Nigerian artist Burna Boy has announced plans to take a musical break.

Posting on his Instagram stories the 32-year-old revealed that he was looking at a lucrative deal that might see him taking a break from making music.

Burna highlighted that he was debating on the decision pointing out that the next couple of years would determine if he really was passionate about being an artist or if it was just a casual thing for him.


Noting that he might pull a Rihanna on his fans.

"With the number I am seeing on this contract, these next years of my life are about to really show if I really love doing music.

God must really want to test my love for music, I just might bounce on you all like Rihanna," Burna's Instagram post read.


This is the second time the 'Last Last' hitmaker is talking about taking a musical break.

Back in 2020 yet again, in a message posted on his social media, Burna Boy had hinted that he'd might go on a break till he's 31.

 "After the Next Album drops. Imma go on a Hiatus till I'm 31. No Music. No social media. NO videos," wrote the self-proclaimed African Giant.

The 'Ye' star went on to say, "I might keep touring though but that's it. #Twice as Tall".


His post comes in barely a day after his fellow Nigerian counterpart Davido announced that he'd pushed up the charges of his rate card so as to ensure he's not overly booked.

In a recent interview, the 30-year-old entertainer candidly revealed his rate card after the interviewer asked him how many shows he does in a single month.

“I mean now I charge $600,000 per show (roughly about Sh. 86 million) so it is less actually. You feel me? Because the less people can pay, the fewer shows I will perform in a month,” replied the DMW label owner.

He hinted that currently he was looking at at least three or four shows per month and that wasn't a bad bargain for him as either way he was racking in millions.

"If I do 4 shows a month that is 2 or 3 million dollars," the multi-award winning Afro beats star noted.
