“Monsters You Made” takes number 12 on Burna Boy’s new album “Twice as tall” featuring Chris Martin, . The song may contain deeper meaning than just what it seems and it seems the Award-winning Artiste is using his little space to send a message to the government and ‘leaders’ that are highly placed.

The intro to the song has the lyrics

“If the government refuse to develop the region
And continue the marginalization and injustice
The youths or the next people coming after us
I think will be more brutal than what we have done”

The singer warns ‘leaders’ to be careful of the action and decisions they may be taking right now because sooner or later a revolution is coming.
