Burna Boy – “African Giant Album”
The album “African Giant” is here. It is promise made and promise fulfilled for Damini Ogulu, who is known professionally as Burna Boy. He’d given 26July as the release date for the album. The day is here and the album is here.
The album totes 19 tracks, beginning with the eponymous “African Giant” and ending on a “Spiritual” note. At 19 tracks, “African Giant” is a “giant” superseding “Steel & Copper,” Burna Boy’s collaborative EP with the American DJ duo DJDS, released in March 2019.
For “African Giant” Burna Boy picked YG, Damian Marley, Angelique Kidjo, Jorja Smith, Zlatan, Jeremih, Serani, Future and M.anifest as features.
“African Giant” as a title is markedly symbolic. Here, if you lease, I leave it to Burna Boy to do the explaining. “Saying ‘African Giant’ goes [to] a lot more than music. It’s a symbol of strength. That’s what I want my people to feel like, to realise that they are,” Burna Boy tells Apple Music.
Here I’m optimistic many will agree with him.
For those with a catholic taste in music, you’ll surely find a number to interest you in “African Giant.”
Burna Boy, who’d rocked “Ja Ara E” with Beyoncé, has got in “African Giant” an album he should be proud of. You gotta check the album out, peeps.
