Details/Takeaway: African Giant is Burna Boy’s eighth project. Its title originates from Burna’s infamous outburst at the organizers of Coachella for spelling his name in small case. The album documents topics of achieving dreams, life’s beauty and activism.
Word on the street saysThe album artwork is inspired by the first Nigerian Ten Naira note on which Alvan Ikoku, one of Nigeria’s foremost educationists, free primary education activist and advocate for learning/gaining knowledge was immortalized for his belief in one’s ability and right to be free to pursue a better life.
