British singer, Ed Sheeran has announced that he has plans to visit Nigeria.
He revealed this on Wednesday, January 26th, during an Instagram Live chat with Fireboy DML.
Sheeran announced his feature on the show, during Rocket Hour, Elton John‘s Apple Music Radio show.
He said, “”[A friend] said, “Fireboy DML would love you on the remix of this song.” And I’ve just found it really intriguing. So I recorded a verse for it… and it’s a song that’s blowing up in Nigeria and Ghana at the moment and their club scene runs over Christmas.
“So you basically put a song to the club in the middle of December, which would seem a weird thing to do in England. But yeah, so I’ve done the remix for this song, but this is the original and it’s just, it’s an earworm, and it’s addictive, and I’m obsessed with it. I mean, Cherry will tell you, I’ve had this song on repeat constantly in the house for the last week.”
The record has waxed strong since then.
Fireboy DML’s song, “Peru”, which features British Grammy award-winning singer, songwriter, and instrumentalist Ed Sheeran, recently hit the top spot on the UK Apple Music charts, making him the first Nigerian to do so, a milestone that Fireboy shared via his Instagram page on Saturday, the 15th of January 2022.
The remix for the smash hit, ‘Peru’, which was released last month, currently has over 20 million views on YouTube, made its debut on the US Rhythmic Radio Chart and gave Fireboy his first ever UK Top 10 entry.
