While appreciating God for the huge achievement, Burna Boy said, he’s a product of sacrifice. Sharing photos of the plague, he wrote:

Early Morning deliveries from across the pond! My parents prayed for excellent children, not houses, cars or “things”. They asked my sisters for stellar degrees; one got a first class in Finance, the other got a Distinction in Engineering. They asked me for a Grammy, and here we are. I am a product of sacrifice! Thank God and thank you all again!
