Teasing his fans with the album art and tracklist causes anticipation leading you to ask yourself what will the this track be about? What’s the theme of the album, if you are getting these thoughts then Burna and his team have certainly achieved their goal.

It is an indication that African artists are growing and this sort of teasing makes the artist accountable whilst at the same time giving a foretaste of what is to come.
He has been in the music business since 2010. Eight(8) years in the music business in any part of the world is a massive achievement, produce hits, go on to develop your own brand and carve a niche for yourself.
That is what it is really about; sort of like a guide of what to do to make it in the music business. Seems simple yet very difficult, the battle to remain relevant, to be constantly seen and heard. And not just any form of seeing but to be seen making a positive impact to be heard making an impact and not noise.
Burna Boy deals with all these things like any musician or celebrity and he is finding his way getting his work out there to the public domain for it to be appreciated. And he has certainly done that with this creative tease.
