Burna Boy Finally Reveals Where He Draws His Idea Of African Unity


Controversial and multiple award-winning artiste, Burna Boy, has revealed in a recent chat with Lanre Bakare of The Guardian UK, what his idea of African unity entails.

In the chat, Burna Boy made his admiration of the late Libyan dictator public. He explained why he holds the late Libyan revolutionary leader in high regard, saying that "it was the agenda that was pushed, and the news that was pushed in your face."

Read the excerpts from the interview below:

"In past interviews, Burna Boy regularly raises the idea of pan-Africanism: that unity on the continent is the way for it to thrive. The movement grew up at the end of the colonial era and saw a collective push to oppose apartheid and resist imperialism.

"It’s hardly a new concept, but it’s rare to hear it discussed by a pop star, so I’m intrigued to find out where he pulls his influences from: is it Fela, Patrice Lumumba, the elected leader of the Democratic Republic of the Congo who was murdered in 1961 with help from the Belgian government, or his parents?

"There’s a pause, and then he answers. “Muammar Gaddafi,” he says, leaning into the camera. Wait, what? Seriously? What about the global exportation of terrorism, the four-decade brutal reign in which dissent was squashed, often violently. “How do you know that?”

"Burna shoots back. “Because that was the agenda that was pushed, and that was the news that was pushed in your face?”
