It’s no secret that a number of spheres of life abroad are influenced by life in Africa., especially the music scene.
In this world of diverse cultures, it’s only appropriate these collabo’s have increased substantially, compared to before.
In recent times, we’ve seen multiple foreign artistes reach out to their African counterparts in the music industry and vice versa.
Here’s a highlight of some of the African artistes who are bridging the gap with the West:
Nigerian Starboy Wizkid made a very notable collaboration with the one and only Drake.
Drake himself is also known for collaborating with artistes from Africa.
Wizkid is featured in Drake’s single ‘One Dance’ in 2016 and Drake featured in Wizkid’s single ‘Come Closer’ in 2017 – which were both huge hits.
Just about a week ago, Nigerian afrobeats sensation Tekno and Ciara released audio for hit single ‘Freak Me’.
This caused a ruckus and immense excitement among Ciara’s African fanbase.
This isn’t the first time the two have collaborated with foreign artistes, but this is Ciara’s first major African collabo
He also collaborated on ‘Bad Girl’ with Drake earlier this year.
This Tanzanian singer became the first African artist to get 6-time platinum sales in universal sales on his single Marry You featuring Ne-yo.
He also did a collaboration with the reggae group Morgan Heritage on ‘Hallelujah’ which was a banger.
And about a month after that,he collaborated with American singer Omarion in ‘African Beauty’.
Also, let’s not forget ‘Waka’ with Rick Ross.
The sky is definitely not the limit for him, that’s for sure.
Another includes Ghanaian-English recording artiste, Fuse ODG who’s recorded with Sean Paul, Ed Sheeran and Wyclef Jean.
