The mother of Grammy-winner Burna Boy, Bose Ogulu, has revealed that she insisted on adding her father’s first name to her surname because she didn’t want to be mistaken for another Idonije.

The talent manager made the revelation on Monday, January 16 at a dinner held at Freedom Park on Lagos Island to celebrate the 60th birthday of media, art and culture executive Jahman Anikulapo.

While introducing Mama Burna, the host craved the indulgence of the former’s husband to refer to her as Bose Benson-Idonije, adding that Bose didn’t like to be addressed as Bose Idonije but has insisted on adding her father’s first name to her surname.

Speaking later, Bose said she insisted people called her Bose Benson-Idonije before she got married because she didn’t want to be mistaken for another Idonije.

Speaking about the celebrant, Mrs Ogulu described the man known mononymously as Jahman as a loyal friend and member of her family.

After leaving Queen’s College, Mama Burna bagged a Bachelor of Arts in foreign languages and a Master of Arts in translation from the University of Port Harcourt.

She had a successful career as a translator for the Federation of West African Chambers of Commerce.
