Revolt TV recently announced that rap mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs will be the executive producer on Nigerian sensation Damini Ebunoluwa Ogulu aka Burna Boy‘s next album, Twice as Tall, and the mega-producer had a lot to say. “Through this album, I think it’s important for Africa to be heard. And so it’s bigger than just an album. He’s not just on a musical artist trip. He’s a revolutionary.”
“I’m on record that I like hit records. If they’re not hit records, I don’t like them,” Diddy said. “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.”Diddy to the New York Times
The bulk of the project was recorded during the pandemic, prior to consulting Diddy. He was brought on board to elevate the album to the level of past hit records he’s worked on. The album is scheduled to drop on August 13. The lead single “Wonderful” dropped last month.
