- Fuse ODG said he will not be surprised to see Beyonce coming on a tour in Ghana very soon following the feature with Shatta Wale
UK-based Ghanaian Afrobeats musician Fuse ODG known in real life as Nana Richard Abiona has disclosed that Grammy award-winning singer Beyonce will benefit more from her feature with Shatta Wale.
According to the 'Antena' hitmaker, Beyonce is currently gaining a new fanbase in Ghana and Africa as a whole due to the various features involving the African artistes.
In an interview with Accra-based radio station 3FM, Fuse ODG expressed excitement at the much-talked-about song of Beyonce featuring Shatta Wale.
"I think Beyoncé benefits the most from obviously Africa certifying her, because there is nobody cooler than Africans right now," he said.
"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," he added.
The New Africa record label boss however admitted that he wished an indigenous African artiste had taken up the Lion King project.
"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 noted.
"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," he stressed.
He noted that the superstar will be touring the world with featured musicians to promote her album.
