Burna Boy who is Nigeria’s Grammy award winner, has recently said his birthday means a lot to him because he never believed he will live to see himself clock 30.
Burna Boy who turned a year older on July 2 and parties were held to commemorate his special day.
Yesterday, he went to his Instastories to show his gratitude to friends and fans he described to have “went out of their way to make my day.”
“I really wanna thank everyone involved in making my birthday special. This birthday really meant a lot to me,”
“I remember a time I wasn’t sure I’d even see age 30. From the bottom of my heart, I appreciate everyone who went out of their way to make my day.
“Thank you to every club we went to. Thank you to everyone in Miami who held us down. Thank you to everyone back home and all around the world who celebrated me even in my absence. May you all be celebrated the same way. Love you all.”
Burna Boy to prominence in 2012 after the release of ‘Like to Party’, a hit song off ‘L.I.F.E’, his debut studio album.
Burna Boy who is also a three consecutive BET Awardee, has continued to channel a new role for Nigerian and African artists across the world.
“I wasn’t celebrating because of myself. It was almost as if I’ve broken a mental cycle of our people. Because our people have been very mentally oppressed to feel like they can’t do certain things and that certain things are unreachable. You are what you think, at the end of the day,”
