The Nigerian music industry is undoubtedly filled with many great talents who have also successfully taken their music outside the shores of this country.
African music, particularly the Nigerian Afro-beat sound, seems to have become a fad in the international scene with international stars wanting to also have a piece of it.
Some Nigerian artists have been able to bridge the gap with the international market and some of them have worked with stars such as Beyonce, Chris Brown, Drake and Rick Ross, to name a few.
Just recently, American singer, rapper, producer and song writer, Sean Combs, aka P Diddy, took to social media via his verified Twitter page to pen a heartfelt message to Africans.
The 50-year-old star said that Africa had been on his mind for a while and that he had been trying to connect with the motherland until he got a call from Grammy-nominated Nigerian star, Burna Boy.
Diddy added that he was so blessed to have gotten the call and that Burna happens to be the first African artist he has worked with.
The American star said that he had been trying to unite with Africans through music and that it was important to make it his mission to build a bridge with his brothers and sisters in the motherland because it was what ‘they’ feared the most.
