Ed Sheeran, the British singer, says Burna Boy, the Afrobeats star, is the “heaviest weed smoker he has ever seen”.
Speaking at the recent Conan O’Brien Needs A Friend podcast, Sheeran opened up on some of his past experiences with his colleagues who smoke.
He said Burna Boy once visited his studio where they both smoked and he nearly missed his performance for the night.
“There is an artiste I have worked quite a lot with called Burna Boy. I would say that is the most I have ever seen anyone ingest weed. And I worked, as I said 10 to 5, and he came to the studio. I had a gig later that night. And it was very much like the studio door was closed and it was just smoke smoke smoke. I remember I was going to say to the gig I do not know. Same thing like I am not it,” he said.
He said the first time Snoop Dogg, the American rapper, gave him wraps of smoke to puff, he nearly went blind.
Sheeran and Burna Boy have combined for songs in recent times.
Burna Boy was featured alongside Sheeran on ‘Own It,’ a song by Stormzy, a British rapper in 2019.
The Nigerian would later enlist Sheeran for ‘For My Hand’, a track off his sixth album ‘Love, Damini.’
In 2020, Sheeran opened up on his struggle with unhealthy dietary habits like binge drinking and eating.
