Taking to Twitter, Diddy wrote about how he has long wanted to have a collaboration with an African artist to ‘connect to the motherland’ before he got a call from Burna boy.
He tweeted: “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.
Diddy concluded by calling on Africans to uplift and build each other. “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.”
Burna boy’s latest album “Twice As Tall” was has Diddy as the executive producer.
