Burna Boy, whose birth name is Damini Ebunoluwa Ogulu, was born in Nigeria in 1991. The singer officially began his musical career in 2010 at the age of 19. However, it wasn’t until 2012 that he found fame after his track Like to Party shot him into the spotlight.
Since Like to Party, Burna Boy has released four studio albums, L.I.F.E, On a Spaceship, Outside, and African Giant. He has also collaborated with some of the biggest music artists in the world, such as Lady Gaga and Stormzy, and won multiple awards.
As a result of his successful and continually growing career, it is now estimated that Burna Boy has a net worth of over $4 million.
Did You Know His Album L.I.F.E sold over 50,000 copies in a Day?
If you know anything about Burna Boy’s success, it might not surprise you to learn that his debut album was extremely successful. However, did you know that in 2013 L.I.F.E (Leaving an Impact for Eternity) sold an enormous 50,000 copies on the first day of its release?
After such a positive response, the record was nominated for three Headies Awards and ultimately won Best Album of the Year at the Nigerian Entertainment Awards in 2014.
Did You Know That the Name Burna Boy Comes from a Comic?
While growing up, the singer-songwriter was a huge comic book fan, which led him to hold superhero aspirations. Burna Boy’s career as a superhero never took off, but pursuing a successful career in the music industry isn’t too far off.
So, when the star came to decide upon a stage name for his music act, it made complete sense to create a name that sounds as if it could be a comic book superhero. The name Burna Boy is not directly taken from a specific superhero, but it was coined to sound as if it could be.
If He Could Master Any Skill it Would be to Play the Guitar
Did you know that one skill Burna Boy would love to master is playing the guitar? He might be a musical genius, but one musical skill that the star doesn’t hold is to play the guitar. In previous interviews, he has mentioned that if there’s anything he would love to do it would be to learn how to play the instrument.
Burna Boy also says he would love to be able to fly, which no doubt comes from his love of superheroes and comic books. However, it is unlikely he will master this particular skill any time soon.
