Burna Boy opens up on why he abandoned his football career for music

Grammy-award-winning Nigerian singer, Burna Boy has disclosed that football was his early career choice.

He claimed that he was an excellent goalkeeper and he switched to music because he “didn’t feel important” when playing football.

This was revealed by Burna Boy during a conversation with British-Nigerian media personality Julie Adenuga.

Burna stated that he did not want to spend the rest of his life being a goalie and that he thought the squad would be OK without him.

He 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.”
