At a point nobody’s music was making sense to me – Burna Boy

Ace Nigerian singer, Damini Ogulu better known as Burna Boy, has revealed the role his friend, late Indian rapper, Sidhu Moose Wala played in the rejuvenation of his craft.

The Grammy winner recounted going through artistic bankruptcy and at the time, Wala was his only source of inspiration because he was “musically exhausted.”

Burna Boy music sense

Burna Boy, who disclosed this while being interviewed on BBC Radio 1Xtra, said he had listened to every music, but none was making sense to him.

The self proclaimed ‘African Giant’ said he was working on a joint project with Sidhu Moose Wala before he was assassinated in May 2022.

He said; “He [Sidhu Moose Wala] was one of the biggest inspirations I had at a time when I felt like I’ve already musically done it all. I felt like I’d exhausted myself musically in my head because I was listening to everything and nothing was making sense to me.

“I felt like I’ve already spoken about everything. I already said everything [in songs]. But Sidhu brought another angle to my musicality. He is a legend. The legend of Punjab. There will never be another one.”

Nigerian singer, Brymo has asserted that Grammy-winning artiste, Damini Ogulu professionally known as Burna Boy is unoriginal, cheap and fake.

He also accused the Afrobeats star of being a thief. Brymo said every song released by Burna Boy is a sample of another artiste’s song and most of his slogans are stolen.

The ‘Ara’ crooner, who wondered how the ‘Last Last’ hit-maker won a Grammy award with his type of music, said he finds it funny that Burna Boy sees himself as the Jesus of Afrobeat.
