Said to drop in a couple of months, Jidenna’s highly anticipated Long Live The Chief album featuring the recently released Chief Don’t Run single is causing up quite a stir in the music world, after the 31 year old’s most popular song, ‘Classic Man’ which came out in late 2015, and was remixed by Kendrick Lamar.

Jidenna has just arrived in Nigeria, where he will spend four days. Interestingly, he is filming a BBC documentary ‘True Africa” which coincides with his album release, hence, Jidenna fans can expect to watch his African tour once True Africa is released.



Following his arrival yesterday, Jidenna attended the official launch of Enjoy Lagos at Eko Hotel. Present at the event were the Mbadiwe twins (whom you’ll remember from Chanel 4’s Lagos to London series), Dr Sally Mbanefo (DG Nigerian Tourism Development Corp), DJ Obi and many more.

It was an early start for the star this morning as he headed over to Beat FM radio station in Lagos, where he spoke about his his album, relationships and more. Here is a one minute video of the interview
