Nigeria music artiste and Grammy award-winner, Burna Boy opens up on how the Recording Academy’s award would have been his even before now.
In a recent interview with BBC, the self-acclaimed African Giant made it known that the award would have been his as early as 2013 if only the Government celebrated her youths.
He further stated that his win at the Grammy is an assurance that no condition is permanent.
“I’m basically the stone that the builder’s rejected, that’s when it comes to being where I am today.
“I feel relieved because I deserved it and if I didn’t get it I was hoping that a situation wouldn’t happen where its like, I wouldn’t get what I deserved.
“I’m basically the stone that the builder’s rejected” – Burna Boy says on his Grammy win
“I just realized that the music I was making was becoming bigger than me. It was clear It wasn’t a hubby anymore so I had to take it seriously.
“Winning the Grammy Awards is just another reminder that no condition or situation is permanent no matter what it is because it doesn’t determine your future or stop you from getting to where you ought to be.
“I also believe that if we had good leaders who take the youths seriously, put some certain infrastructure in place then, I wouldn’t have probably been winning the Grammys in 2021. I would have probably won it in 2013 or 14.
“However, at the end of the day God makes no mistakes at all,” he said.
