Drake is no stranger to Nigerian music, as evidenced by his many collaborations with Wizkid on “One Dance” and “Come Closer”, as well as on the remix of “Ojuelegba”. He even brought Wizkid to his recent show at London O2 Arena .
It seems the Canadian rapper has now turned his attention to the sounds of Niniola , the queen of the afro-house of Nigeria .
Drake initially followed Niniola on Instagram a week ago. The Nigerian star wrote on her social media: “Imagine getting up in the morning to find that Drake just followed you…”
Drake joined Tiffany Calver as a co-host on BBC Radio 1 Extra, where he specifically requested that ” Maradona ”By Niniola be played.
Drake is not the only great North American artist to have recently enjoyed the music of the performer of "Maradonna" a few weeks ago, Timbaland was also seen during a live on instagram, enjoying another song by the artist.
A Drake X Niniola collaboration? The future will tell.
