Burna Boy Speaks On Why His Music Is Well Accepted In The UK Than The US
Sensational singer , Burna Boy has shared his thoughts on why his music is more accepted in the UK than in the US.
Over the years , Burna Boy has worked more with UK acts than US music acts and this is seen in his collaboration with the likes of Stromzy , Ed Sheeran , Mahalia , Jorja Smith , Dave , and so on.
The singer is one of the most respected African acts in the UK and he has explained why his music has been accepted there than the United States.
The “Wonderful” singer who is preparing for the release of his album “Twice As Tall” in a recent interview with the Guardian , said that the black Americans in the US have lost their “knowledge of self”.
According to him , it took longer for his music to find an audience in the US than in the UK; this , he says , is a consequence of African Americans not having the same close connection with Africa. “Unfortunately , the brothers in the US have been stripped of their whole knowledge of self , ” he says. “So it’s a bit harder for them , you know?”
When asked about the “Black Lives Matter” movement , Burna said , “I’m more of an NFAC kind of guy.” NFAC stands for “Not Fucking Around Coalition”.
This was an armed African-American group made up of ex-military personnel which was compared to the Black Panthers.
