VIDEO: Diddy delighted to finally meet Burna Boy ‘in-person’
Diddy: "It was a meeting of two Kings!"
It was a wonderful moment for the cameras as Grammy Award-winner Burna Boy finally met American billionaire rapper Sean Combs – Diddy- for the first time in person.
Both artistes have worked together in producing hit album ‘Twice as Tall,;’ which was released on August 14, 2020 by Spaceship Entertainment, Atlantic Records and Warner Music.
Diddy served as the producer for this musical work during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Unfortunately, Burna Boy and Diddy have never met – not even after the Nigerian music maestro won his first Grammy Award earlier this year.
It was therefore not surprising to see the delight from Diddy as soon as Burna Boy arrived his home in the United States.
He described the meeting as the cementing of brotherhood.
“Today is a glorious day. Today I get reunited with my brother. I know we all back outside and everything but you know there was a time not too long ago, we were all trapped inside the house,” Diddy said.
Although Burna Boy is not the first Nigerian to win a Grammy Award, the Rivers state indigene is considered one of the first contemporary Nigerian music artistes to gain traction within the global mainstream music scene.
He now has 100 million streams on spotify from his last three albums.
Burna Boy, who will turn 30 a week from now, is estimated to be worth $17 Million by Forbes.
