Burna Boy Drops 15-track Album ‘Twice As Tall’
Nigeria Afrofusion singer Damini Ogulu, better known as Burna Boy, has made good his promise to release ‘Twice As Tall’, his highly anticipated album, on August 14.
Following his Grammy loss to Angelique Kidjo, the ‘Ye’ singer had disclosed that the title of his next project will be ‘Twice as Tall’ which suggested he knew better.
“So now I’m ‘Twice as Tall’. That’s the name of my next album, by the way, dropping in July by the grace of the most high,” he had said.
TheCable Lifestyle, however, reported how Burna Boy failed to meet the July schedule for the album release alongside Wizkid and Davido prompting him to fix a new date.
‘Twice As Tall’, the ‘African Giant’ crooner’s fifth album, is executive-produced by Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs, a US media mogul and rapper, and Bosede Ogulu, Burna Boy’s mother.
In the 15-track project, the ‘Ye’ singer enlisted the likes of Stormzy, Coldplay’s Chris Martin, Youssou N’Dour, Naughty By Nature, and Sauti Sol, among others.
