Damini Ebunoluwa Ogulu, popularly known as Burna Boy, was born on 2 July 1991, in Port Harcourt, Nigeria. We shall be looking at the biography of Burna Boy through his career and accolades.
Initially being dubbed an underrated artiste, Burna Boy came into the limelight in 2012 subsequent to delivering “Like to Party”, the lead single from his presentation studio collection L.I.F.E (2013). Burna Boy’s unique talent led him, in 2017, to sign with Bad Habit/Atlantic Records, the reputable record label situated in the United States, and Warner Music Group.
Upon the release of his third studio collection dubbed Outside, the album put the ace artiste on the global limelight. In 2019, he won Best International Act at the 2019 BET Awards and was declared as an Apple Music Up Next craftsman. With the release of his much anticipated fourth studio collection African Giant which was delivered in July 2019, the world was really ready to finally listen to Burna Boy.
It won Album of the Year at the 2019 All Africa Music Awards and was named for Best World Music Album at the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards. Also, Burna was recently granted the African Artiste of the year at the 2020 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards.
Aside from his prolific career as seen from his biography, let us look at the net worth of Burna Boy. Perfectly evaluating the net worth of most African artistes seems to be rather difficult owing to how complex accessing their financial status can be, hence most information outlets disseminate this information based on guesswork.
However, earlier this year, Burna Boy ridiculed an article via his Twitter account, that aimed at placing his net worth at $3.5 million. According to him, he already exceeded that amount at the time he dropped his much acclaimed Outside album. Therefore going by this information, Burna Boy’s net worth exceeds a whopping $3.5 million.
