Beyonce’s love letter to Africa as she calls it was released on Friday 19th July 2019 and it has completely blown up the social media waves.
The Lion King: The Gift album which features amazing Nigerian talents such as Tekno, Tiwa Savage, Burna Boy, Wizkid and Ghanian rapper Shatta Wale indeed hosts some of Africa’s greatest musical minds
So locals all around the world get to be introduced to proper Afrobeat via Beyoncé?!

Burna Boy proved he’s the real African giant on this one as he is the only artist with an African song in the album. His song is titled ‘Ja ara e’ and is laced with his signature afrobeat vibe and amazing lyrics. The most interesting part of his feature on the album is that ‘Ja ara e’ is a single. Burna Boy is the only artist with a single on the album
Nigerian reacts are filled with absolute Pride as all the accolades go to Burna boy who is also the only solo feature on any song in the album.
Listen to the song below…

Burna Boy is the only African artiste with a solo feature on Beyonce's #LionKing album.
He also sang the only song titled in an African language.
Now that's how to rep! CERTIFIED AFRICAN GIANT.

Imagine playing Beyoncé’s album on repeat to listen to Burna Boy.
Please next time put his name in CAPS and in very large fonts.
