Grammy-winning Nigerian singer, Damini Ogulu, aka Burna Boy, has revealed the inspiration behind his forthcoming seventh studio album, ‘I Told Them.’”
He said he took a trip down memory lane on his Twitter page and he discovered that he had previously tweeted about all he is achieving now, hence, he decided to name the album, ‘I Told Them’.
Burna Boy disclosed this in a recent interview with American media outlet, Complex.
He said, “Them’ in my album title, is anyone that ever didn’t believe [in me] at any point in time.
“The way the name of this album came up is because one random day, I just went on my Twitter [page], and I started scrolling down to my old tweets. I wanted to see what the first tweet I ever tweeted was, for some strange reason.
And then it just sent me down this rabbit hole, where I’m just looking at everything I ever said. I’m like, wow! It’s crazy. I really did say all these sh*ts that is happening now. And that kind of made me to name my album, ‘I Told Them’.
The album would be released on Friday, August 25, 2023.
The singer said the project will have a sequel that would be released later.
