Nigerian music sensation and Grammy Award winner, Damini Ebunoluwa Ogulu popularly known as Burna Boy, has disclosed that his passion for football was stronger than music during his early years.
The ”Last Last” crooner made this revelation during an interview with Julie Adenuga, a popular British media personality.
Despite being a talented goalkeeper, Burna Boy eventually gave up his football dreams to pursue a music career.
According to him, he felt unimportant and dispensable while playing as a goalkeeper, which made him reconsider his options.
Burna Boy stated, “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.”
