“I felt a bit depressed during covid. I think everybody went through that because we had to stay indoors. We couldn’t hang out and party as much as we wanted to or, like for a long time.
One album that really got me through that is definitely Burna Boy’s “Twice as Tall”. That album speaks to me on a different level.”
