Bose Ogulu, the mother and manager of one of Grammys award winner Burna Boy has opened up on the hardest part of her job.

The founder and CEO of Spaceship Collective, in an interview with CNN’s African Voices, revealed when it comes to expenditure, they hardly see eye-to-eye.

Ogulu explained this is usually the case because Burna usually comes up with wild ideas capable of gulping up huge sums.

She noted at first her reaction used to be instant disapproval however, she’s overtime been able to substitute his ideas with things relatively close that won’t necessarily have to consume so much money.

“We don’t think we should be spending money on the same thing,” she said.

“So he comes up with really crazy ideas without really thinking about what it costs or what it doesn’t cost. And so, my first reaction would be no, that’s not going to work. How are we going to make back that money?”

“And then I learned that it’s not ‘no’. It’s just that we should find a way of still making it look like what he wants or close to what he wants without spending as much.”
