American musician, Ne-Yo, has expressed his intention to work with Nigerian musicians such as Wizkid, Burna Boy, and Tems.
The singer made this known on Wednesday at a media conference with Flytime music before headlining their music festival.
Ne-Yo also stated that he was surprised by the reception he received during a recent visit to Nigeria.
He said “I remember being pleasantly surprised the first time I came to Lagos, Nigeria. I genuinely had no idea that I had such an amazing fan base here.
“For me to sit with producers and go and be like, ‘Let’s do some afrobeat today’, I’ll feel like an imposter.
“If I want to get into it, I want to be invited by an artist who’s already there.
“Let me feature on an artiste who’s already there or I get an artist who’s already there to feature on something of mine, so that’s authentic and real.
“I’ll love to collaborate with some African artists. Wizkid is on the list, Tems is on the list, Burna Boy is on the list, and Ckay is on the list.
“I’m just waiting on a phone call basically. I don’t have anybody’s number for me to call. I’m waiting for them to call me.”
