    What we know about Burna Boy’s “Twice as Tall” album

     

    in an interview with the Guardian said that says the black Americans in the US have lost their “knowledge of self”.

    “Most of the people from the UK, if not all the black people from the UK, and the people of colour – they all know where they’re from. They know exactly where their roots are.

    It took longer for his music to find an audience in the US than in the UK; this, he says, is a consequence of African Americans not having the same close connection with Africa. “Unfortunately, the brothers in the US have been stripped of their whole knowledge of self,” he says. “So it’s a bit harder for them, you know?”

    Burna Boy is popular for making bold statements and ideologies. When asked about the “Black Lives Matter” movement, Burna said, “I’m more of an NFAC kind of guy.”

    NFAC stands for “Not Fucking Around Coalition”. This was an armed African-American group made up of ex-military personnel which was compared to the Black Panthers.

    The singer also said that he is heavily influenced by Muammar Gaddafi, the late leader of Libya. His logic goes that Gaddafi should be applauded for his ambitions to start the African Monetary Fund in order to counter the power of the Eurocentric IMF, and for his socialist policies in Libya. However flawed, his ideas were truly pan-African, he argues.
