Popular Nigerian musician and Grammy Award winner, Damini Ogulu, better known as Burna Boy disclosed why he worked towards success.
He said he was able to achieve his recent successes on the global stage because he realized that he either achieves greatness or death.
In a recent interview with GQ Magazine, 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.
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.
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.”
