So it turns out Jidenna will land in Naija soon and it looks like Don Jazzy and Banky W are getting ready for his arrival.
Why do we think so?
First off, there was a naming ceremony by Don Jazzy on Twitter where he renamed the Nigerian-American recording artist ‘Yanky Banky’ explaining that Jidenna is now a part and parcel of Afrobeats. Yanky Banky is basically the American version of Banky W who was an American returnee and mixed afrobeats with his RnB style in his debut song ‘Ebute Metta’ in 2008.
Banky W has now approved the name! Carry go…Don Jazzy!
What we loved most about this whole Twitter exchange was when Jidenna replied- in pidgin! We’re in love! He kinda shows his originality but sha everything na ‘formation’(I think that was the idea- to make people feel like he is down to earth or maybe he is… Sha, it worked!) Anyway, we are glad he has chosen to come home for his promotional tour.
Apart from this tour and live performance at Hard Rock Café in Lagos, what else could likely happen while Jidenna is in town? Let’s hear from you- tell us your thoughts in the comments section.
