Jidenna in a recent interview with Pulse talked about a number of issues relating to him, Afrobeats, and the Nigerian music industry.
Jidenna who is currently in Nigeria revealed he and Wizkid had connected in the US, and spent several hours working on new music for both their albums.
“It was great, me and him vibed for hours. It was very easy actually. We both have the same process when we are in the studio; the way we come up with melodies, the song concepts and what not. So we did some work on each other’s albums, I don’t know what will happen on it, cause you never know. It’s all a matter of time.
“But I love working with him. He like I, has a profound sense of duty to not just Nigeria, but the African continent. He was very focused, and his new album sounds like East Africa, West Africa, South Africa, North Africa, and even Central Africa. He has different sounds, and I love that about him. For me it was just a great vibe. Very cool, sleek dude.”
Jidenna will be debuting his album ‘Long Live The Chief’ at Hard Rock Care, Lagos, on September 1, 2016.
