"Bose Ogulu attempted to extort me for $10k. After the agreed amount was paid in full, she proceeded to ask for an additional $10k. When I realized what was happening, I decided to pull from the show completely. I asked for the 15k balance that was paid the night of and they refused to return the money."
Moola also claimed that Burna Boy’s team snuck out of a hotel through the back exit after they had finished negotiations.
When Moola realised he was being extorted
In a different slide, he posted the promotional flyer for the show while disclosing that Burna Boy put it up after receiving the balance for his appearance.
Moola claimed that after the Twice as Tall singer posted, his mum allegedly requested another $10k.
The promoter said it was at the point of Bose’s request that he realised he was being extorted and Burna Boy shared a post announcing the show’s cancellation.

"At that point, I no longer wanted to move forward with the deal. This is around 1:10 am. He was set to arrive at the club at 12:25 am. Once I requested for the $15k balance that was paid that night (The deposit was paid in October in Los Angeles) that’s when he posted this cancelled flyer."
Moola claimed that he was robbed of N28m by Burna’s team and his name was slandered.
He disclosed his intention to pursue the matter with the help of the law while demanding a refund.
