Grammy Award winner and Afro-fusion singer, Damini Ogulu, popularly known as Burna Boy, has disclosed that he won’t release any album till further notice.
Burna Boy broke the news on his Instagram handle, on Saturday. He, however, did not state any reason behind the decision.
“I might decide not to drop an album for a long time. In fact, you know what, no album till further notice,” he wrote.
Burna Boy’s decision follows his collaborative single with American music producer, Jon Bellion.
The ‘African Giant’ crooner, who has made a name for himself in the global music industry since he shot into limelight with his hit song, ‘Like to Party’ in 2012, has five albums, including ‘L.I.F.E.’, ‘On A Spaceship’, ‘Outside’, and ‘Twice As Tall’.
He received a global recognition after he bagged the ‘Best World Music Album’ gong at the 2021 Grammys.
After his epochal Grammy win, Burna said: “It was almost as if I’ve broken a mental cycle of our people. Because our people have been very mentally oppressed to feel like they can’t do certain things and that certain things are unreachable. You are what you think, at the end of the day.”
“It is time to start thinking about ourselves, not what the society said we should be or what our limitations say we should be. I’ve come from Port Harcourt, the bottom of the map in Nigeria, and now I’ve become a champion.
“It may not mean anything to someone else, but to me, and to us, it means more than you can imagine. Every day I realise more that things are bigger than me. I have to think for a whole generation before I think for myself,” he added.
