Famous Nigerian singer David Adedeji Adeleke, popularly known as Davido, has stated that Grammy-winning Beninese singer Angelique Kidjo opened global doors for a new generation of African artists like himself.

He noted that the ‘Wombo Lombo’ crooner has represented the continent so well on the global stage over the years.

Relishing his recent collaboration with the legendary musician, Davido noted that he has been longing to work with her.

Speaking in a recent interview, Davido said: “I’ve always been wanting to work with Mama Africa [Angelique Kidjo], that’s what we call her, for a long long time.

“She can perform anywhere and for different crowds. And she has represented us so well, you know, on the global scene. She opened doors for new artists like myself.”

It will be recalled that Davido featured Angelique Kidjo, alongside The Cavemen on ‘Na Money’ off his Grammy-nominated album, ‘Timeless.’
