Will Twice As Tall blow you away as much as African Giant did? No, but I do see the album putting him on another level.
Burna Boy blends joy, hope and unity with powerful social messages on latest release.
The Nigerian hero has roped in Chris Martin and Sean 'Diddy' Combs to craft a collection that confirms his status as a contemporary great.
The Arts Desk
The producers are 90% Nigerian, the album was almost entirely recorded in Lagos under COVID-19 restrictions, and towering over it is Burna Boy himself, calm and confident in himself and his position as a superstar. It’s a joy to hear someone reach a position like this without dilution or compromise.
delivering an album which stakes his name on his claim to greatness. It'd be madness to think he isn't seated on those plush echelons at this moment.
