I stopped because goalkeeping was dead - Burna Boy speaks on former career

Burna Boy, the Nigerian singer who recently won a Grammy award, revealed in a conversation with British-Nigerian media personality Julie Adenuga that he started his career as a footballer.

However, he stopped playing because he didn’t feel important as a goalkeeper.

Burna Boy said that he loved football and was good at playing, but he didn’t like being a goalkeeper because he felt like the team could do without him.

He wanted to feel needed and important, so he decided to pursue a different career.

Burna Boy 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.”

Since then, Burna Boy has released five studio albums and has become one of the most successful musicians in Nigeria.

His fourth album, “Twice As Tall,” won a Grammy award in 2021, making it the first and only Nigerian album to do so.
