Did Burna Boy’s Twice as Tall, Trashed Davido’s A Good Time
About Burna Boy;
Damini Ogulu (born 2 July 1991), better known by his stage name Burna Boy, is a Nigerian Afro Fusion singer and songwriter.
Life and music career
Burna Boy was born on 2 July 1991 to Mr. and Mrs. Ogulu. He hails from Ahoada, Rivers State and spent a part of his childhood in Port Harcourt. He attended Montessori International School, and later attended Corona, Agbara for his secondary school in Lagos. He would later to move to London where he would spend significant time, be involved in a gang related issue that saw one person dead, and flout court orders not to leave the UK in favour of pursuing a music career in Nigeria. His exit from the UK earned him a 15 year bar from entering the country. The bar was lifted in 2016, 5 years shy of the initial sentence.
Burna boy teamed up with Leriq as his producer often early in his career, and together they were able to make a name and gain massive popularity in Port Harcourt with only mixtapes. Under management with Aristokrat records, he released his debut album Leaving an Impact for Eternity (L.I.F.E) to approvals from fans and critics. As at 2017, his career had been characterised with great music and paved with controversies around his behaviour. In 2019 Burna released his most commercially successful project, African Giant, which followed on the heels of his critically acclaimed Outside. African Giant is his fourth LP and was nominated in the 2019 grammy awards as the Best World music album. via Genius.com
I basically believe that what motivated him to the success of Twice as Tall album is the underrate and unnecessary attention Davido gave himself posting a fan at work made by a fan of his, of which davido tag him and Wizkid a G.O.A.T greatest of all time in Nigerian.
That’s funny huh? but it happened and that keeps me wondering if they really remember 2face Idibia with the stage name 2baba, who paved way for the youngie.
Above is the fan art work that lead to the motivation of Burna boy’s new album Twice as Tall, which Davido wrote “The 2 greatest of all time ! No”
Then again it didn’t stop at just posting a picture, Davido also went ahead and gave a million naira to the fan who made the art.

In May 2020, Burna Boy did a Q&A with his fans. During the conversations, he revealed that his new album would be titled, Twice As Tall – after the unsavory experiences at the 2020 Grammy Awards.
But during his chat with The Breakfast Club, he says, “To be honest, man I wanted to call it ‘African Giant Part II’ but ‘African Giant’ did so well, I didn’t want to put pressure on this one.”
On 24th August 2020 Wizkid published a post on instagram featuring the album at work of Burna Boy “Twice As Tall”, Fire boy – Apollo, Dj Cuppy – Original Copy, Efya ft.
