Angelique Kidjo lavished praises on Burna Boy during their recent Instagram live session. The Multi-Grammy winner, says hearing a sample of his song on Burna Boy’s record made her scream adding that it gives her goosebumps, and to see someone touch her song and take it to a new level – one she couldn’t have predicted.
“You make me listen to my song differently. And that’s what music is when somebody touch your work and do it differently. It takes the work to another level. It brings you somewhere else that you never foresee yourself.” Talking about Burna Boy’s live performance, she applauded the Nigerian singer for being a good performer. “One thing I wanna tell you after your show in Paris. You can do wonder on album but what makes you a different artist and artist in whole is when you are on stage and you deliver.” She said.
“And when I come to your show I am like, ‘My boy is killing them all, that’s my boy’ and I’m liking it”, she added.
However these compliments were gratefully accepted by the African Giant, who admitted to blush.
