Grammy-award winner, Damini Ebunoluwa Ogulu aka Burna Boy has recalled his journey into the music industry
The Afrobeat singer tweeted he had no idea that he would live long, noting that he came into the music industry from prison in the UK.
The 31-year-old was arrested in London in 2010 for allegedly murdering an individual.
Burna hinted that Nigerians are unaware of his personality and he is also uninterested in being the biggest artist but just wants to be happy and do what he loves.
The singer said that many people would be happier if they realise the things he did for money and how he risked his freedom daily.
He wrote: “Nigeria really doesn’t know me. I don’t care to be the biggest Nigerian artist, I’m just happy I can do what I love and take care of my people from it. If you knew half the shit I used to do for money, risky my freedom daily you would way happier for me.
“I came into the music industry straight from CHELMSFORD HMP. I had no idea I would even live this long. So when people talk about me now it’s all just funny. Of course, I will perform with my injured leg or even legs or arm.”
