I Will Perform With My Injured Leg Or Even Arm,” Burna Boy Stated.

Burna Boy, a musician from Nigeria, has talked openly about his upbringing. He claims that before moving to Nigeria to seek a career in music, he served time in a British prison. He revealed in a tweet that he used to risk his life every day only to make some money for his daily activities.

He claimed that if people understood even half of the things he went through or the difficulties he encountered, they would be glad for him and his present-day triumphs.

“I came into the music industry straight from CHELMSFORD HMP. I had no clue I would even live this long. So now it's all simply comical when people talk about me," Burna Boy wrote.

The "Anybody" hitmaker said he is just pleased to continue his work and does not worry about being the biggest musician right now.

“Nigeria really doesn’t know me. I don’t care to be the biggest Nigerian artiste, I’m just happy I can do what I love and take care of my people from it. If you knew half the shit I used to do for money, risking my freedom daily, you would way happier for me…Of course, I will perform with my injured leg or even arm,” Burna Boy stated.

Burna Boy revealed these details during a heated Twitter exchange with some users who were allegedly trying to compare him to Wizkid and Davido, two of his fellow musicians.

Meanwhile, it was previously stated that Burna Boy and other gang members were detained in London in 2010 after being accused of fatally stabbing a person.

He was tried as a minor, and the authorities later imprisoned him. According to reports, Burna Boy served 11 months in prison followed by two months of parole and community work for good behavior.
