Ghanaian-English recording artist, Nana Richard Abiona, better known by his stage name Fuse ODG has commented on the trending Beyonce’s ‘Lion King’ Album which features a lot of African stars.
He revealed that Beyonce’s featuring of African artistes will be of a great benefit to her than the opposite.
“I think Beyoncé benefits the most from obviously Africa certifying her, because there is nobody cooler than Africans right now,” Fuse ODG said on Accra-based 3 FM.
“So Beyoncé actually being a part of this soundtrack to me, it benefits her a lot greater. She’s getting certification from real African people.”
Fuse ODG added that the ‘Lion King’ Album should be hosted in Africa due to the movie being set in their continent.
“Definitely we should be helping Beyoncé, and of course helping each other in terms of the platforms that she has, but in terms of legitimacy for African music…Remember Lion King is set in Africa,”he said.
“So really, it should have really been hosted by an African artiste, but I think having Beyoncé on board, of course, she has a crazy reach and all the African artistes involved should give her the certification she needs.”
Beyonce’s Album features Shatta Wale and Guilty Beatz from Ghana with the others hailing from Nigeria.
