Diddy shared a video of their first physical meeting to his 18million followers on Instagram on Friday after they spent time cooking “Twice As Tall” via Zoom dues to the effect of COVID-19.

The duo worked together to create a 15-track album, Burna’s fifth studio album back in 2020 where Diddy acted as executive producer for the album that was released in August 2020.
