Speaking with Sunday Scoop, James Silas who is Mr 2 Kay’s manager made reference to a recent statement made by the Lagos State Police Commissioner where it was reveled that Burna Boy paid the armed robbers to rob Mr 2 kay.
James Silas said: “The police commissioner has said it all. The matter is in the hands of the Nigerian police and there is nothing much we can do or say about it at this point . All the things the police said are true. We have no reasons to fabricate anything. The armed robbers said they were sent by Burna Boy.
“The industry is funny ; so , we’ve have decided to handle the situation carefully. When the time is right , Mr. 2 Kay will address the issue himself. But for now, we don’t want to be in the middle of all the drama. You can see that Mr. 2 Kay has yet to speak about this issue.”
