Hi-Res Distinctions 4F de Télérama - Pitchfork: Best New Music
The grandson of one of Fela Kuti’s first managers, Damini Ogulu aka Burna Boy shares Nigerian origins, African pride and a certain charisma with the inventor of Afrobeat. A superstar at home, his notoriety keeps on growing at an international level, evidenced by his collaborations with Drake, Lily Allen and Major Lazer, and his Best International Artist BET award from 2019. The 19-track-strong African Giant also justifies this level of success: the meticulous production and hefty melodies complement his suave, sexy and compelling vocals. His songs elegantly float between R&B, sophisticated pop, soca, zouk, hip-hop but also jazz and rock. Distancing himself from the commercial label of afrobeats, probably out of respect for the image of the original afrobeat, Burna Boy describes his music as afro fusion. The riotous music gives you an unshakeable desire to dance… and makes you ponder the huge influence Africa has on most of today’s music. The calibre of the featured artists (British soul sister Jorja Smith, American prince of R&B Jeremih, the heir to reggae’s leader Damian Marley and Beninese queen Angélique Kidjo for francophone West Africa to name but a few) only goes to show Burna Boy’s aristocratic status in the industry. But even without them, it wouldn’t be difficult to understand the importance of this African Giant. © Benjamin MiNiMuM/Qobuz

Ever since Damini Ebunoluwa Ogulu donned his superhero attire he has inevitably climbed to stardom. Last time, with his album African Giant, Burna Boy, narrowly missed out on pocketing the Grammy award for Best World Music Album 2020 as the winner Angélique Kidjo dedicated it to him. With Twice as Tall, its producer Puff Daddy assured him: “You are going to make album of the year.” And the Nigerian star has really pulled it out the bag. The record is brimming with today’s flavours, a cocktail of R&B, afro fusion, grime and dancehall and features which transform the casting into a Hollywood premier. From the intro track, Level (Twice as Tall), the godfather of modern African music, the Senegalese Youssou N’Dour, joins the fray. Later on, we find Kenyan afro-pop artists Sauti Sol on Time Flies, the prince of Grime Stormzy on Real Life, youth heroes Naughty By Nature honour a track which carries their name and even Chris Martin of Coldplay lends his vocals on Monsters You Made. The very ambitious Burna Boy reigns above the featuring artists, defending tooth and nail the fact that Black lives matter. An album to charm the ladies, get couples and singles dancing and to inevitably propel Burna to the top of the charts. © Benjamin MiNiMum/Qobuz
