Burna Boy has been in the talks after his performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! The conversation on social media brought a flashback to an older generation of Nigerian musicians charting the way.
An old video of legendary Nigerian reggae musician Majek Fashek has surfaced where he pulled off something similar to Burna Boy’s appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!
The legendary Majek Fashek played live on David Letterman Show in 1992. This was Majek’s debut on US national network television. He performed his hit song ‘So Long Too Long’ from his album ‘Spirit of Love’ on the David Letterman Show with some members of his band.
Watch the clip below.
Several Nigerians have reacted to the video maintaining that Nigerian music has always been international and it didn’t just start in the past few years.
