I Came Into Music Industry From Prison, Burna Boy Reveals
Nigerian singer, Damini Ogulu, popularly known as Burna Boy, has revealed that he joined Nigeria’s music industry after he left Chelmsford HMP, a UK jail for young offenders.
Burna Boy disclosed this in a now-deleted tweet on Wednesday.
Revealing his time in prison for the first time, the grammy award-winning artiste tweeted, “Nigeria real 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 the sh*t I used to do for money, risking my freedom daily, you would be way happier for me.
“I came into the music industry straight from CHELMSFORD HMP. I had NO idea I would even live this long. 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 no arms.”
