Jidenna whilst speaking to journalist at Heineken Live Your Music press briefing in Lagos, disclosed that he really wants to be fluent in Ibo.

“I speak Igbo a little but not the way I wish. I actually took a class when I was in the US to speak more fluently and Aunty Ifeoma, God bless her, was just excited that we were there and she went so slow that at the end of the semester, we didn’t get anywhere,” he said.

“One of my goals is to be fluent so I actually hired a teacher recently to Skype with me so I can learn on the road so hopefully one year from now, I’ll be much more fluent than I am now.”

Whilst his failure to speak Ibo is not unusual for an individual who has spent most of his life outside Nigeria, his drive to learn the language is seen as good by many.

Speaking on his musical influences, the artist said “My foundation was in hip-hop but influenced by other sounds.

“When I was growing up in Nigeria, Bob Marley was like the biggest god so him and Fela were my biggest heroes when I was a kid”.

“I stir all that together and try to make music but I don’t think it has all that at the same time but now I have figured out the formula”.

He is also a big fan of contemporary artists as he listens to Tiwa Savage, Wizkid, Sarkodie and Tekno.

French Montana

The popular rapper French Montana is looking out for the next generation as he takes his good works home.

French Montana takes up more charity work as he takes the good work to his home country Morocco by footing the bill for 2 preschool classrooms. The rapper who is working with the Sabae School of Fida-Mers Sultan district reportedly makes the donations that will be able to provide supplies and sustain the classrooms for at least a few years.

French grew up in Morocco before moving to the United States when he was 13. In June 2018, he became a legal citizen of the United States but his loyalty hasn’t shifted from home.

As reported by TMZ, “French’s investment in education comes on the heels of the $500k he raised to help build a hospital in Uganda. The hospital opened in March and it’s now servicing more than 300,000 women in 40 villages.”

Keep up the good work French!
