‘I Had to Choose Between Greatness And Death’ — Burna Boy Speaks On Grammys

‘Twice As Tall’ album creator, Burna Boy has said his astronomical rise to stardom which was cemented recently by his 2021 Grammy award was a result of his firm decision to choose between death and greatness.

The Afrobeat superstar, whose real name is Damini Ogu explained that he was able to achieve his recent successes on the global stage because he came to a point where he realized that it’s either greatness or death.

In a recent chat with GQ Magazine, Burna Boy- who’s affectionately called African Giant remarked, “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.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. Every day, I realise more that things are bigger than me. I have to think for a lot of people – basically a whole generation – before I think of myself.”
