Popular singer, Burna Boy, disclosed in an interview with GQ Magazine that he chose between greatness and death at a particular phase in his life, this was what earned him success.
He said, “Following several collaborations with foreign artistes of African heritage, I just made up my mind that I wanted it all. I wanted to be the greatest. That’s when it hit me really hard that I had to do it. It was that or death.”
The singer stated that the grammy award he won enlightened people that certain things can be achieved through hard work and perseverance.
He added, “I was not celebrating because of myself. It was almost as if I had broken a mental cycle of our people. Our people had been very mentally oppressed to feel like they could not do certain things, and that certain things were unreachable.”
The artiste further explained that he had to put other people first before himself.
He said, “Every day, I realise more that things are bigger than me. I have to think for a lot of people – basically a whole generation – before I think of myself.”
