The African artistes bridging the gap between Africa and the West using music

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:

Wizkid

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.
