Burna Boy’s fans will be thrilled to know that his 5th album lands on August 13th. Following on the success of his critically lauded African Giant, which earned the Nigerian Afrobeats hitmaker a Grammy nomination, Burna’s looming project will arrive in a world that is ready to give him his flowers.

In an interview with the New York Times, the Gum Body singer and rapper revealed a few details pertaining to the album.

Entitled Twice as Tall, the tape will find the 29-year-old collaborating with a bevy of America’s most sought after producers to deliver material that will premiere to an audience that is spread across the world.

Twice as Tall is executive produced by Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs, who is responsible for some of the biggest careers such as Notorious B.I.G, Jennifer Lopez and amongst other best selling megastars, Mary J. Blige. From this alone one can glean that the album will be aiming at the perfecting balancing of his Afrofusion sound with elements that will take him much further on the Billboard charts.

And Diddy was happy to confirm in the interview that they are working on nothing less than a hit album. “A lot of times when an artist wants to be coached or pushed to maybe a greater level, that’s where I’ve come in,” he said. “He, as every artist, he wants his music to be heard by the world…”

Along with Diddy, Timbaland and Anderson Paak also boast production credits.

Burna Boy is adding the final touches to the album, which he said was completely guided the “spirits”. It was recorded mostly during the pandemic, the album will draw sonic influences Nigeria, South Africa, Jamaica and the US.

Guest appearances include Naughty by Nature, Sauti Sol and Senegalese legend Youssou N’Dour. Fans can expect a Zulu choir, electro influences, alternative R&B and organic instruments from West Africa and Zimbabwe.

Amonge Sinxoto Featured Amongst Global Influential Thinkers On BBC Rethink Podcast

Global Thought Leader Recognised on BBC Podcast.

Published

on

Amnge Sinxoto

Amonge Sinxoto got the best co-sign for her social impact as a thought leader. The teenage social entrepreneur and co-founder of Blackboard Africa was recognised as an influential thought leader on BBC podcast.

The BBC World Service asked “thinkers” from across the globe to imagine the most inspirational and meaningful changes that might result from the coronavirus crisis under the “Rethink” title for their Rethink podcast. Amonge is featured alongside The Pope, The Dalai Lama, Caleb Femi, Lady Hale, Kwame Anthony Appiah, Andy Murray and the South Korean foreign minister, Kang Kyung-wha.

The BBC’s Rethink podcast series are short essays sent in by the likes of academics, philosophers, national security advisers, and poets. Named amongst the 100 Most Influential Young South Africans of 2019 by leading PR & Rating firm, Avance Media, earlier this year, Global Teen Leader and game changer, Amonge remains one of the most important voices of her generation.

The social activist took to Instagram to share the news.

“It has been interesting to see the urgency with which the world closed up shop to prioritize the preservation of life. However, it makes me sad to know that the pandemic of systemic racism has plagued black people for hundreds of years, with nothing as swift and decisive done to mitigate the problem. Women in South Africa have also been living in a pandemic for years. 40% of women in South Africa are predicted to experience some form of sexual assault in their lifetime. That is a Pandemic!” The real test of progress is the action and initiatives that come AFTER awareness is created. Progress to me will be when the “new normal” entails preservation of life for ALL. BBC World Service asked “thinkers” from across the globe to imagine the most inspirational and meaningful changes that might result from the coronavirus crisis under the Rethink title. BBC’s Rethink podcast series are short essays sent in by academics, philosophers, national security advisers, and poets. The South Korean foreign minister Kang Kyung-wha, Andy Murray, The Pope, The Dalai Lama, Caleb Femi, Lady Hale, Kwame Anthony Appiah and myself to name a few.
