I had to choose between greatness and death – Burna Boy


Popular singer, Burna Boy, in an interview with GQ Magazine has revealed how he chose between greatness and death at a particular phase in his life.

Speaking during the interview, Burnaboy 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.”

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.”
