“I had to choose between greatness & death to break the mental cycle of our people” – Burna Boy shares his grass to grace story

Grammy award winning artist, Burna Boy has opened up on the challenges he faced which led to his numerous achievements now, Oyogist.com reports.

In a recent interview with GQ magazine, Odogwu stated that his determination was getting to that milestone or losing his life.

“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,” he affirmed.

He added, “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.” Burna said further.
