Self-acclaimed African Giant, Burna Boy joins Ebro in the Morning to discuss his experience working with Diddy to executive produce his latest album ”Twice As Tall’, winning at the BET Awards, his thoughts on Afrobeat and what he calls ‘Afrofusion’ music, working with Chris Martin and lots more!
Recently, Burna Boy joined Hot 97’s Ebro In The Morning to talk about his latest album, Twice as Tall, working with Diddy as well as the difference between Afrofusion versus Afrobeats.
The interview begins with Burna Boy speaking about how exciting and “interesting” it was to work with Diddy on the project.
“We had to do it all on Zoom…We had to kind of create the same environment in different places at the same time.”
When asked why he refers to his particular sound as Afrofusion as opposed to Afrobeat. Burna Boy responds by saying:
“…Afrofusion is me, I created that. The same way Afrobeat is Fela Kuti, he created that. There’s a difference. I don’t play every instrument. I’m not Fela, basically. I’m Burna Boy and we go about things rather very differently. It’s a different genre. It just comes from Africa.”
Burna goes on to speak about the message in his album “Twice as Tall” and what it was like working on Monsters You Made with ColdPlay’s Chris Martin. It’s a pretty insightful and eye-opening conversation.
