I’d love to work with Wizkid, Burna Boy, others – Ne-Yo
American singer and songwriter, Ne-Yo, has stated that he would like to collaborate with Nigerian artistes like Wizkid, Burna Boy, Tems and Ckay.
Ne-Yo made this known on Wednesday in a press conference with Flytime music, as he was set to headline the music festival on the same night.
Speaking at the conference, he disclosed that he never knew he had such a fan base in Lagos.
“I remember being pleasantly surprised the first time I came to Lagos, Nigeria. I genuinely had no idea that I had such an amazing fan base here,” he said.
The American singer talked about the Nigerian genre of music, Afrobeats, and his intention to go into it.
In his words;
“For me to sit with producers and go and be like, ‘Let’s do some afrobeat today’, I’ll feel like an imposter.
“If I want to get into it, I want to be invited by an artiste who’s already there. Let me feature on an artiste who’s already there or I get an artiste who’s already there to feature on something of mine, so that’s authentic and real.
“I’d love to collaborate with some African artists. Wizkid is on the list, Tems is on the list, Burna Boy is on the list, and Ckay is on the list.
