Grammy-winning artist and international superstar, Damini Ogulu, widely known as Burna Boy, has disclosed that his upcoming seventh studio album, ‘I Told Them,’ was inspired by his old tweets on Twitter. Burna Boy shared that he delved into his Twitter history and discovered that he had previously tweeted about the achievements he’s currently experiencing. This discovery prompted him to name the album ‘I Told Them.’
Burna Boy revealed this during an interview with the American media outlet, Complex. He explained that the “them” in the album title refers to anyone who didn’t believe in him at any point in time.
He shared, “The way the name of this album came up is because one random day, I just went on my Twitter [page], and I started scrolling down to my old tweets. I wanted to see what the first tweet I ever tweeted was, for some strange reason. And then it just sent me down this rabbit hole, where I’m just looking at everything I ever said. I’m like, wow! It’s crazy. I really did say all these sh*ts that are happening now. And that kind of made me name my album, ‘I Told Them’.”
