Burna Boy is not known for dating frequently, but he did have a serious but brief relationship with Jamaican-British rapper and singer Stefflon Don.
They were going strong and appeared to be very happy, and marriage talks were in the works, until it was revealed that Burna had been seeing Instagram model Jo Pearl since 2018. (around the same time Burna and UK singer Steff started dating).
Jo Pearl claimed on Instagram that she has been in a relationship with Burna Boy for two years. She claimed they were together in 2018 and that despite his trip to Nigeria, she believed they were still together.
This is around the time she claims he started dating Stefflon Don. They allegedly rekindled their relationship when she visited him in Nigeria. Jo Pearl claims they never brought up Stefflon Don during their conversation, but seeing them together on social media was “too much” for her mental health.
