Grammy award-winning Nigerian singer, Damini Ogulu, popularly known as Burna Boy, has stated reason he did not want Manchester City to win the UEFA Champions League final against Inter Milan.
Straightnews online reported that City pipped Inter 1-0 to clinch their first-ever Champions League trophy in Istanbul, Turkey, on Saturday night.
Burna Boy who made history as the first African artiste to perform at the Champions League final, spoke with Paramount+ shortly after the game.
Burna Boy performed alongside Brazilian singer, Anitta.
He said he did not want City to win because he is a fan of their rival, Manchester United.
He said, “This was most amazing thing, even though I honestly didn’t want City to win for sentimental reasons, it’s okay.
“It is amazing performing at the UCL final.”
Burna Boy thrilled fans with a medley of his hit songs ‘Last Last’ and ‘It’s Plenty’ at the kickoff show powered by Pepsi.
Recall that Burna Boy on Friday received four nominations in the 2023 edition of the Black Entertainment Television, BET, Awards.
This came a week after the singer became the first African artiste to sell out the 80,000 capacity London Stadium in the United Kingdom.
