Fashion Illustrator Accuses Burna Boy’s Team Of Taking Her Designs Without Giving Her Credit

Afro-fusion artiste, Burna Boy

Fashion illustrator, Omonigho Ait0-Imonah has called out Burna Boy‘s team for using her designs without giving her due credit.

Taking to Instagram, the fashion illustrator shared her encounter with the singer’s mother, Bose Ogulu, saying that she sent her three different looks that she created for Burna Boy in 2019.

According to her, the singer’s mother referred her to her stylist daughter, Ronami ogulu, who simply ignored her emails.

Later this year, Imonah said that she saw one of her designs in the visuals of the singer’s song, ‘Monsters you made’ and the recommended designer was acknowledged.

Angered by this, she also claimed that she also designed the jewellery the singer wore in the music video.

Her post reads;

“Congratulations to @burnaboygram on his Grammy nomination!!… Hopefully he’ll win it this time…however, when an artist is not acknowledged for their work and it goes ahead to being used….it’s in poor taste, I presume…

Almost a year ago, I came up with 3 grammy looks for @burnaboygram and reached out to his mum @thenamix / management (see emails) to put them together for him.

She graciously responded and directed me to his stylist sister @ronamiogulu , who NEVER responded to my many emails…fast forward to this year, your girl sees THE SAME LOOK, by the recommended designer @jzo_ng including the necklace! on @burnaboy for his Monsters you made video!!…giirlllll @ronamiogulu you no try o…but well….”
