Meanwhile, in other news…

Grammy-winning singer, Damini Ogulu professionally known as, Burna Boy, has revealed that his early career path was in football.

He said that he was a good footballer, but he decided to switch to music because he was better at goalkeeping and was not happy that he “didn’t feel important.”

The Grammy-winning artiste made this known during a chat with British-Nigerian media personality, Julie Adenuga.

Burna noted that he believed the team would fare well without him, so he left as he did not want to spend his life as a goalkeeper.

He said; “I love football. I was good at playing football but the wickedest thing was that I was good at goalkeeping. That’s why I just stopped because [goalkeeping] was dead.

I didn’t feel so important. I just didn’t feel like I was needed like that. I felt like without me the team will still be alright. I don’t want to spend my life like that.”
