Nigerian artiste, Joeboy, has said in a new interview that he finds Ghana as an environment that aids his creative activities.
He told Tilly Akua Nipaa on Oneplay Africa’s video-on-demand platform, Oneplayplus, that he even recorded his ‘Alcohol’ song in Ghana, even though the beat was produced by a Nigerian producer called tempo.
“Ghana is like a very, very cool place for me creatively. It’s very quiet and calm,” he said.
He added that he likes Ghanaian foods like waakye, shito, kenkey, fufu with light soup, and smoked fish.
This is not the first time a Nigerian artiste is talking about his or her love for Ghana and the calm environment that gives them peace and enhances their creativity.
Burna Boy in 2019 said he loves Ghana because it feels like God lives in Ghana. Wizkid, another Nigerian artiste who frequents Ghana also said that what makes him attractive to Ghana is the jollof his friend’s wife serves him.
As part of the insightful 16 minutes conversation with Tilly Akua Nipaa, Joeboy also speaks on how the immense supports from Nigerian gatekeepers like Don Jazzy is crucial to their work.
Like Don Jazzy, there are other incredible music leaders in Nigeria who have formed a wall to support these young talents with the main focus of projecting them to the world.
