I Would Have Won The Grammy Years Ago If Not For Our Leaders — Singer Burnaboy

 I Would Have Won The Grammy Years Ago If Not For Our Leaders — Singer Burnaboy
Nigerian singer, songwriter, and Grammy 2021 winner, Damini Ogulu popularly known as Burna Boy, says he would have won the prestigious award in 2013 if the country had a leadership that takes the youths seriously.

Recall that Burnaboy had won the ‘Best Global Music Album’ category at the 2021 Grammys. Speaking in an interview with BBC Africa on Saturday, the award-winning singer said he would have achieved the feat earlier if he had the right environment and support.

“If the environment was conducive and we had leadership who took the youth seriously and certain infrastructure in place, I probably won’t be winning a Grammy in 2021. I probably would have won in 2013 or 2014.

"I’m basically the stone that the builders refused when it comes to, you know, being here (in music). I was very relieved because I deserved it. I was hoping a situation wouldn’t happen where I didn’t get what I deserved," he said.

Burna Boy said his experience should inspire others that they can succeed regardless of the odds. 

“I saw this moment happening back in 2012. I just realised it (the music struggle) was bigger than me. 

"It’s like I used to do this on the streets and everyone is going crazy, but now I don’t see anyone better than me.

"So, it’s like this is serious now. Anything is possible. Whatever situation you may be in wherever you find yourself doesn’t really determine your future or stop you from not considering your dreams as being dreams.

"In the end, we’re in an environment that doesn’t believe in itself before they even think of believing in you.”
