Nigerian-born, American singer, Jidenna believes the time has come for Nigeria music to rule the world.
Speaking to CNN, Jidenna says it is now Africa’s moment to dominate the world and confident, Nigeria will spearhead this process.
“I think it’s Nigeria’s moment, it’s Africa’s moment,” he told CNN. “I think Nigeria is a spearhead because Nigerians seem to be charged full of character so people are eating it up all across the world.”
“You’ve seen Alicia Keys and Swizz Beats and Drake, Chris Brown, Party Next Door…listening to Afrobeats as well.”
The Grammy award nominee further discussed his reasons for promoting African culture, using Nigerian-pidgin in his newest album ‘Long Live The Chief’.
