[GIST] Burna Boy Hails Himself To Be A Spiritual Singer

Burna Boy has hailed himself to be a “spiritual” musician.

The 2019 Grammy Award nominee doesn’t like to compare his tracks to each other, and says every album is about immortalizing a period of his life.

He explained: “This is the error people make, I’m not a modern-day artist, I’m a musician.

“I don’t put and release projects together so they can be compared.

“I release them because I feel that way in this part of my life.

“Running the project and throwing it all in, please make it eternal to my lifetime.”

Recently, the Nigerian hitmaker released his fifth studio album, ‘Twice As Tall’ featuring the likes of Chris Martin and Stormzy and he says that there was no other person suited to the position of executive producer than his friend, Diddy, because he “understood the need to create a bridge between every black person” in “every continent in the world.”

Burna Boy added to “Tidal’s  Check In series”  that “There’s no other person I could think of at the time that could bring to life the vision I’ve already had, especially since he’s someone who also understands the need for a bridge to be built between every black person in every continent of the world, so this is just a kind of setting that pace.”

The 2019 Grammy-nominated singer said in a record press release that the record is about “the struggle for freedom.”

He said:  “TwiceAs Tall” is the album about a period of time in my life. It’s the album about the struggle for freedom. It’s the album on life in general, real life, good times, bad times, happy times, sad times, great times.”
