American rap mogul, Diddy has relished working with Nigerian Grammy-winning singer, Damini Ogulu also known as Burna Boy, on his new album.
Burna Boy featured on a track titled ‘Interlude’ in Diddy’s just-released fifth studio album, ‘The Love Album: Off the Grid.’
The music producer recalled building a bond with the self-proclaimed African Giant that turned to a brotherhood as far back as 2020 during the coronavirus pandemic.
Diddy said he is blessed to have worked with the ‘Last Last’ crooner whom he helped to win a Grammy award in 2021 with his Twice As Tall album.
He reflected on their strong working relationship via his official X (formerly Twitter) account and described Burna Boy as an “incredible talent.”
Sharing a video, he wrote; “I’ve been blessed to work with incredible talent on this album. Me and my brother @BurnaBoy. We developed a brotherhood during quarantine.
“I Executive Produced his Grammy Award winning album Twice As Tall. I was telling him about how much I missed Kim. I played him some music and this is what he sang to it…”

Twitter Influencer, Daniel Regha has said Burna Boy should not be put in the same category with the likes of Olamide, Wizkid and Davido.
The ontroversial critic said Burna Boy is still an upcomer when compared to the three abovementioned artistes.
Regha made the statement while featuring on Doyin’s Corner hosted by Big Brother Naija star, Doyin David, noting that when OBO, Baddo and Machala were the hottest artistes on the scene, Burna was nowhere to be found.
He further said Olamide has more hit songs than most of them which is why he finds it funny when people mention Burna’s name before the YBNL founder.
Daniel Regha said there is a set for every musician in the industry and there are people who started buzzing at about the same time as the ‘Odogwu’, it just so happens that he became more successful.
The popular Twitter user further explained that the same way one would not put Tubaba in the same list with Wizkid and Davido, is also how the Last Last crooner is not in the same set as them.
Speaking on how big Burna is, Regha accredited it to streaming era, saying that if the popular singers from the past had come out now that streaming platforms exist, most of their songs would be hits.
He said; “Burna is still an upcomer compared to Wizkid, Davido and Olamide. When those artistes were popping, Burna was nowhere to be found…Burna is mostly popping now because he is in the streaming era.”
