Afrobeats singer, Damini Ogulu, popularly known as Burna Boy, has disclosed that one of his childhood dreams was to be a basketball.

According to the singer, as a young child, he so much dreamt of building a career around professional basketball playing.

Naija News gathered that the grammy award-winning singer shared his childhood career dreams when he was featured in an interview after his recent performance at the 2023 National Basketball Association (NBA), All-Star Game halftime on February 19 alongside Tems and Rema.

He disclosed that it was his dream to play at the NBA as a professional basketball one day.

Burna Boy said even though he didn’t get to play with NBA, he was excited his dream still came through as a singer who performed at NBA and not a basketball player.

He submitted that “I’ve got too many…too many. Like I said before, I wanted to play basketball at first. I was in high school, in the basketball team. And we used to kill everyone.

“Since then….even before then, it had always been a dream of mine to play basketball. But obviously, the road of life turned different.

“And yeah! I’m here still at the NBA. You know what I mean? I still made it to the NBA.
