But she is taking 60 percent of the shit. I’m not complaining. Hopefully, she even comes out to one of the shows”.

Sakpo, The Lucifer : Burna said Toni Braxton gets 60% of Last Last Royalties cos of the sample. Atlantic definitely gets at least 30 – 35% of the Royalties cos of the heavy promo & playlists they gave the song, leaving Burna’s earnings at less than 10%. The desperation to get a Global hit
Big Derah : Burna Boy said Toni Braxton is taking 60% of whatever he makes from Last Last, how much will Atlantic take? Then how much will he make? Lol.
___FLYING360 : Burna Boy didn’t hide. He truthfully spike about the % cut to Toni Braxton for Last Last. It’s a big song and it will go down as one of the biggest Afrobeats song, he’ll get more bookings, more deals. Watch the space. If you don’t know shit about risk to reward ratio. SHUT YO.
