On Saturday, August 15, 2020, legendary American producer and businessman who also served as Executive Producer of Burna Boy’s new album, ‘Twice As Tall’ took to Twitter to discuss how he got the job.

In four tweets, he wrote, “Dear Africa, you have been heavy on my mind and my heart … I’ve been trying to connect to the motherland for a minute, but I never got a chance to do it properly. When I say properly, I mean in a soulful spiritual way.

“But during this time we’ve had off, God blessed me to get a call from my brother @BurnaBoy. He’s the first African artist I’ve been blessed to work with and he didn’t know this but at the time I was praying to God to bring something to me that would help to bring us all together through music.

“I think it’s so important we all make it our mission to build a bridge to the motherland. Let’s continue to uplift and build with our brothers and sisters. It’s what THEY fear the most… Strength in numbers. Love, your brother Diddy. See y’all soon! #BlackUnity #TWICEASTALL.”


On Twice As Tall, Diddy lent his voice to three songs. His endorsement will go a long way in getting Twice As Tall to the dreamland of a Grammy win.
