Why I left football for music – Burna Boy
Grammy-winning singer Burna Boy has shared on how he abandoned his first love, football, for music.
He said he excelled as a goalkeeper, showcasing his athletic prowess.
However, Burna Boy made a pivotal decision to transition to music, driven by a sense of not feeling significant enough while playing football.
During a conversation with British-Nigerian media personality Julie Adenuga, Burna Boy openly expressed that he aspired to more than a lifetime as a goalie, believing that his team would fare well even without his presence.
This revelation offers a fascinating glimpse into the artist’s journey and the path that led him to become the celebrated musician he is today.
He said: “I love football. I was good at playing football but the wickedest thing was that I was good at goalkeeping. That’s why I just stopped because [goalkeeping] was dead.
“I didn’t feel so important. I just didn’t feel like I was needed like that. I felt like without me the team will still be alright. I don’t want to spend my life like that.”
Burna Boy has released several critically acclaimed albums, including ‘African Giant’ and ‘ Twice as Tall,’ which won him a Grammy Award for Best Global Music Album in 2021.
He collaborated with numerous artists and continues to be a prominent figure in the global music scene.
