Burna Boy did “African Giant” in 2019, an album that’s still setting records even almost three years after its initial release. “African Giant” was indeed a hybrid between the rawness Burna Boy showed on “Outside” and the commerciality on “Twice As Tall.” It was the real deal.

The only other album in the past decade that has undoubtedly come close to Burna’sAfrican Giant,” is Wizkid’s 2020 album, “Made in Lagos.”

When Wizkid dropped the LP in October 2020, it became apparent instantly what he was trying to achieve with it.
