In an interview with serial host Ebuka Obi- Uchendu, Nigerian Afrobeat sensation, Burna Boy, revealed that he prefers international awards to local awards.
When asked why he prefers international awards to local ones, he said international awards strive on recognition and hard work and that those awards are given only when the artist deserves it.
He also said international awards are more realistic and prestigious noting that it’s very difficult bribing them for an award which is not the case in the local category.
Speaking on the local awards, he said most of them are not given on merit and hard work adding that he actually does not care what others think about his thoughts on both award systems and that it is what it is.
Burna Boy, came to the limelight in 2012 when he released his single ‘Like To Party.’
The singer has over the years won several awards both international and local in recognition of his works and contribution to the Nigerian music industry.
