Ace Nigerian musician Damini Ogulu AKA Burna Boy, has revealed that his issue with interviews is that they’re usually stressful.
The singer made this known as he featured in the latest issue of GQ magazine where he spoke, among other things, why interviews make him very uneasy.
“It’s not that I hate interviews,” he told his interviewer, Lola Ogunnaike, adding, “It’s just that I find them stressful. I find them more stressful than going on tour.”
“Because most of the questions you all ask are very direct, simple questions. But then I answer simply, and then you’re waiting for the rest, like there’s supposed to be a rest of the answer when there really isn’t.”
He said he was not impressed with the charts, with numbers; he was more interested in his fans.
“I don’t really have a high regard for numbers, because numbers have no feelings, they have no soul, whereas I do,” he explained.
“My ‘numbers’ is the people who have actually felt the feeling that the music is supposed to carry across and in the process received the message,” he added.
