Nigerian reggae-dancehall singer, Burna boy, has expressed his thoughts on the music industry and the degree of politics he thinks is involved therein.
Speaking from award angle, the ‘Like to party’ crooner told The Fader that it is political.
He said, “It’s political, man. To be honest, I don’t really feel like I’m a part of the industry. Check out awards, I don’t get awards becausethe powers that be don’t really like me. I’m not like everyone else; I won’t do what everyone else does. They don’t like it.
“Everything is really political, too much politics in the industry and I’m not a very good politician. So I don’t really involve myself in all that. I just drop hit songs, and my fan base keeps increasing.
According to the singer, he is not even a part of the industry.
Speaking further, he said, “If I was a part of the industry then I wouldn’t have shit today. Think about it. It would just be one of the songs you hear in the club and then that’s it.
“But right now, you see, I don’t have the most Twitter followers or the most Instagram numbers or whatever, but the things that I do the people with one million followers can’t do it,” the Afro-Fusion songster added.
