The Grammy-nominated artiste’s new album, ‘Twice As Tall’ features guest artistes like Youssou N’Dour, Stormzy, Sauti Sol, Naughty By Nature and Coldplay’s Chris Martin.
The 15-tracker was largely recorded in Lagos during the lockdown caused by the coronavirus pandemic and has been described as a “melange of sounds”.
