Fireboy is enjoying success after Ed Sheeran jumped on a remix of his track Peru.
Madonna has been known to be working on a remix project and it was recently reported that she has recruited pal Katy Perry for one song.
The I Kissed A Girl hitmaker previously made a cameo in Madonna’s star-studded ‘B**** I’m Madonna’ music video in 2015, and she’s now believed to have added her vocals to a remix of one of her biggest hits for the upcoming album.
Fireboy DML is set to entertain his fans at the Ngong Racecourse Waterfront Park in Nairobiwith some of his favourite tracks such as Vibration and Jealous.
The artist, born and raised in Nigeria quickly rose to fame in 2019 with the re-release of the Jealous, an Afropop head-bopper that announced his presence as a major talent.
