Grammy Awards nominee, singer Burna Boy has been hailed by Nigerians on social media after the released of his new album titled Twice As Tall.
According to his caption of the album on Boomplay, “Twice As Tall is the album about a period of time in my life. It’s an album about the struggle for freedom. It’s an album about life in general, real life, good times, bad times, happy times, sad times, great times.”
Shortly after the album dropped, Burna Boy was hailed by 2face Idibia, Ben Bruce, Bashir Ahmad and many prominent Nigerians for the effort put into creating the album.

Ben Murray Bruce said: “Congrats, King @burnaboy! #TWICEASTALL.”
Frank Edoho: “That Bebo song by Burna Boy is inflicting my brain with groundhog syndrome. The jukebox in my head has it on loop and I can’t get it to stop. I will play it until it decomposes. Great song. #TWICEASTALL.”
Tuface Idibia’s look-alike and first son, Nino Idibia turned 14 and his mother Sunmbo Adeoye took to Instagram to celebrate him.
She shared a photo she took with the birthday boy and another of his football-themed cake and wrote:
She wrote; “Love my teenage son. God has blessed me with an amazing one. Self-driven, high performing in sports and academics and with such a matured mind.
Learning to parent with you and understanding the uniqueness of the various stages as you grow in age is just mind-blowing.
I love that each growing stage creates such a unique atmosphere for our mum and son bond”.
“Either I’m being your mom- manager, mom-driver, mom-teacher or mom-barber, I’m just honored that you choose to trust me with your deepest thoughts and visions.
I Love you so much my Fabulous baby Nino, and can’t stop reminiscing on how expressive, loving and curious you were as a baby. I’m sure now as a teen, you will keep growing in wisdom and in stature as I view your future through the lens of Faith.
May the Lord bless and keep you, may He cause His face to shine on you and give you peace all the days of your life.
Please join me as I wish my firstborn a HAPPY 14th BIRTHDAY”.
On Wednesday, November 27th 2face Idibia and Blackface opted to settle their legal battle out of court after turning up in court.
In a statement to confirm the new status, Blackface took to Instagram this afternoon to say, ‘I am a human being and a Nigerian who fights for his rights. The problem with many of us is that we are afraid to speak up for what is right or defend the truth when we know it’.
See the rest of his statement below…
No be say i too talk my people but I’m just trying to inspire somebody or ‘trying to make common sense’ like Mr Ben Bruce would say My people “Don’t sleep on your rights” and users of peoples works make sure the writers/contributors are credited properly When you speak out, things happen and that’s why I said I will be done with this issues this year 2019 and behold here we are…
I can say that the 50 Million defamation suit filed against me by Mr Innocent Idibia aka 2face and his manager Mr Efe Omorogbe has been settled out of court as they both have withdrawn their case filed against me It’s true that they sang my song without permission and truly it pissed me off, but that doesn’t legally make them thieves as the lawyers made me to understand Sometimes the words we use matter, that’s why I apologised for using that word when my lawyers advised me…
Finally they admitted they made mistakes with my songwriters and publishers rights which they should have informed me before but they never did ,they have promised to rectify them so we wait and I hope they honour this this time and furnish me details to that effect.
To all my fans, friends, family ,followers and #BFNNation Thank you all for your support I O U guys a big concert #BFNLIC1 Can we now go back to the music ?The #album #risingsun soon be available
