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.”
