The influence of artists like Wizkid, Davido and Burna Boy has shown the immense potential and talent in the Nigeria music industry and their influence has helped propel other Nigerian stars to the global stage, giving the world the sweet taste of Afrobeats music.
This influence has made foreign stars look towards working with Nigerians, and one of Asia’s top stars has taken a big bite.
Hong Kong’s superstar DJ Sidtrus has collaborated with Nigeria music label Jamika Entertainment to feature two of their rising stars, Sultan ‘Afroboy’ and Yung Bos on his music album ‘Believe It’.
The 3 track EP is a fine syncing of Electronic Dance Music sounds with Afrobeats melody giving it a uniqueness that has made the songs run up the music charts in China and Nigeria, setting an unprecedented new take on the saying ‘ the Best of both worlds’.
Sidtrus who draws crowds of thousands to his concerts and shows in Asia said he looks forward to having the young talented Jamika Force stars come perform the songs live with him as they have gotten themselves a new fanbase in the Asia world.
Stanley Ihensekhien, the head of operations of Jamika Entertainment talked of the potential of the youngsters and how their talent is opening doors for them.
“Yung Bos and Sultan are not just making themselves proud but the whole country, their talent speaks for itself and that is going to take them to the very top not just in Nigeria but the world.” He said.
“This would be the first of many works we have planned with Sidtrus and Supernova Hong Kong, as we continue to tap into the influence and growth of Afrobeats.”
