With this nomination for the 2021 Grammy awards, he has another shot at bringing home the much-coveted award.

Twice As Tall is a 15-track album which was released on August 14th is a follow up to his critically acclaimed 2019 album "African Giant".

Burna Boy says the album is "a journey through a bunch of emotions and energies at different points in time. It has now morphed into something bigger than me. It serves as a bridge for mankind to show that we're all different but still very much the same."

Burna travels through socio-conscious terrains throughout the project, harping on failed Afro-political agenda, underdevelopment, poverty, Western imperialism, among other Afro-tailored societal woes.

He acknowledged that the project is an extension of his Pan-African agenda on the Grammy-nominated African Giant album.
