The African Giant thinks some things about Nigerian are somewhat difficult to explain.
According to Burna Boy, his ‘African Giant’ album focuses more on Nigerians and African than his previous album ‘Outside’ which was more of an autobiography.
The ‘Afro-fusion’ artiste claims that, his lyrics always depict how he wants to cross-over to the outside world. In explaining “cross-over,” he said that, he would like to cross over to those outside Africa and educate them on where they are originally from – Africa – so that they do not lose their roots.
Talking about Nigeria, he said to the media;
“Nigeria is misunderstood by insiders. I can guarantee you that at least 90% of my people that are my age group in Nigeria, when we consider the youth, have no clue about the real origins of Nigeria. There’s so much knowledge and there’s so much truth that needs to be told. There’s so much that the youth needs to know.
“Really and truly, right now the only thing that can save the youth is knowledge and financial independence.”
