Burna Boy, na my guy be that. Tiwa Savage, she's like a sis though, so that is locked down already. Probably Wizkid too. I would love to work with him. I don't know what's going to happen. Probably, I'll just make a move. If it happens, I don't know. Errm, Internationally, I would love to work with Ariana Grande. Me I use to think the extra mile. Like afrobeats infused with pop music. We could make it happen actually.
