Damini Ogulu, Nigerian Afro-fusion artiste better known as Burna Boy, says he feels sorry for Nigerians and music artistes who are after international deals.
In an Instastory on Wednesday, the gifted singer expressed concerns about some really sad stories that abound from the persistent trend.
“I feel sorry for all you Nigerians and artists jumping into these international deals. You guys don’t know what you’re doing,” Burna Boy wrote.
“I will forever be grateful to my manager/mother for making sure I will never be an “international” VICTIM. I feel very bad for every one of you. I’m hearing some really crazy shit out here. I feel so sad for you all.”
Burna Boy is renowned for his opinionative and critical stance regarding topical issues in Nigeria’s social and political space. Recently, the singer took a shot at the Nigerian government and alleged that it doesn’t care about citizens.
He also urged Nigerians and African nations at large to look inwards and project the African culture to the western world, during an interview with ‘Sway’s Universe‘.
“You can’t be strong anywhere if your roots aren’t. If Africa is looked at the way it is supposed to be, then we wouldn’t have problems over here in the UK. We’re only as strong as our roots,” he said.
“The same way you’re looking for what you want in the western world, you can do that in Africa and make a lot more impact because you’re with your people and have a lot of knowledge that is needed.”
