Netizens have reacted to the deleted tweet of Nigerian international pop star, Damini Ogulu, better known as Burna Boy, on how he spent his days in a UK prison.
Earlier today, Burna Boy tweeted about his troubled past, how he spent some time in Chelmsford HMP, a prison in the United Kingdom. He also revealed that he made his way into the music industry after a brush with UK law enforcement.
He tweeted: “I came into the music industry straight from Chelmsford HMP. I had no idea I would even live this long,” he said.
“So when people talk about me now, it’s all just funny. Of course, I would perform with my injured leg, or even no legs or arms.
“Nigeria really doesn’t know me. I don’t care to be the biggest Nigerian artist. I’m just happy I can do what I love and take care of my people from it.
“If you knew just half of the shit I used to do for money, risking my freedom daily, you would be way happier for me.”
Following this revelation, Netizens took to the comment section to troll him for bragging about his success despite spending some time in the prison. Moreover, some acknowledge his story as something impactful.
