Why I left football to start singing – Burna Boy reveals

It’s so sad – Burna Boy writes to people who lack appreciation for their roots

Popular Nigerian Afrobeats superstar and Grammy award winner, Damini Ogulu, popularly known as Burna Boy, has revealed why he left his footballing career for music.

He disclosed this in a chat with British-Nigerian media personality, Julie Adenuga.

He said he was good at goalkeeping which he didn’t like because he “didn’t feel important.”

Burna Boy said;

“I love football. I was good at playing football but the wickedest thing was that I was good at goalkeeping. That’s why I just stopped because [goalkeeping] was dead. I didn’t feel so important. I just didn’t feel like I was needed like that. I felt like without me the team will still be alright. I don’t want to spend my life like that.”
