In other news, 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.
