Grammy Award-winning singer, Damini Ogulu aka Burna Boy, says he is scared that he might not be half the kind of man his father is.
Burna Boy, who turns 30 in a week stated on Thursday that though he wasn’t born with a silver spoon, he wishes to surpass his father’s wisdom as he turns a year older.
He tweeted; “I can’t believe I’m really turning 30 years old in a week.
“My Father is Not rich at all But I pray that as this new phase of my life begins I can be even half the man that he is. I just want to be better and do better.”
