Being able to put out an album is never enough until it is accepted by the majority and then success is sure.
Burna Boy released his most recent album titled “African Giant” on Friday the 26th of July, 2019 and has been enjoying the fame, love and total acceptance that came with it…..we are proud of him too!
Before the release of his album, his feature on Beyonce’s album, “The Gift” has been trending and people are unbelievably surprised on how he landed there? That is not all, he also performed his hit single “Anybody” Live on Jimmy Kimmel.
On the day he released his album, he also appeared on a radio show, Power 105.1 in New York City, on the Breakfast Club hosted by Angela Yee, DJ Envy and Charlemagne Tha God. He spoke on a number of things and one of them was how he got to be a part of Beyonce’s album..?
He said; “I don’t know anything about how I ended up on the album, to be honest. I have never spoken to her.”
He was asked about being in communication with her or any member of her team may be via email, he responded;
“Not really, the only App I have on my phone is my WhatsApp, no social media, I got the message from my mom, she is the plug.” and also added that it was really exciting for him to have been featured by Queen bee, Beyonce.
He also talked about the reason he gave his album such a title “African Giant.” When asked about it, he said;
“I mean, it is just to highlight the power and pride of the African man and Africa in general by shining the spotlight on something the spotlight hasn’t really been on.”
The album is doing so well on charts just as the name suggests. It has so far, bagged the number one spot on Apple music in over ten countries and it is less than a week old. It has been widely accepted in countries such as; Nigeria, Zimbabwe, Ghana, South Africa, Uganda, Kenya, Swaziland and many more!
Congratulations Burna Boy!!!
