According to Instagram user Jo Pearl, Burna Boy has been secretly dating her in London while he was also seeing Stefflon Don.
Nigerian music superstar Burna Boy has been accused of cheating on his girlfriend Stefflon Don by a 23-year-old girl Jo Peal who has alleged that she and the singer had been secretly dating for two years.
Burna Boy is in a high-profile relationship with Stefflon Don, the 28-year-old British rapper whom he has been dating since early 2019.
However, Pearl has alleged that she also dated the Afrobeats star in the past two years.
Going public about thier affair in a video shared on her IG, she wrote:
“Two years is such a long time for a person to be hidden. It has affected me in so many ways, and I can’t hold it any more to protect people that wouldn’t protect me.”
In two videos on her Instagram page, the 23-year-old narrated how she met and fell in love with Burna Boy before he started dating Stefflon Don.

Pearl also said she thought Burna’s relationship with the British rapper was a publicity stunt. “At that point, I thought this relationship was fake anyway. I thought, there’s no way this boy is going to date someone like that only because of the things he has told me about himself. Knowing how he is so in tune with his African heritage and black women,” Pearl said.
Pearl said they never addressed the other relationship and they resumed as usual. “For the past two years we have never stopped seeing each other,” she also said.
“It’s just been like the elephant in the room that we choose not to discuss and we just go about things like it doesn’t exist.
“I just was in love, and I have been in love for two years, and I have been seeing him for two years; I’ve just always been in the background.”
“In the past two years, he has never mentioned the person I see him with on social media to my face. That person never gets acknowledged, it’s like she doesn’t exist in our world,” she also said.
“D, I’m just tired of protecting you,” she said, addressing Burna Boy. “I’ve got feelings too, seeing you in secret for two years has been detrimental to my mental state. “
“It’s my choice, but you guys will never understand what it is to be in my shoes.
“I didn’t do this video to hurt you. I know it will hurt you because as far as you are concerned, me and you are on good terms but I can’t do this anymore.
“I’m not doing this for clout, I’ve been very private for two years, I’m not doing this for money because financially I have been so stable, working and having someone provide for me , so I’m simply doing this because I’m about to burst and mentally I feel like I am in a bad place.”
Both Burna Boy and Stefflon Don are yet to react to Jo Pearl’s claims.
