Nigerian artists are known for their superb collaborations, home and abroad. Yet, few have worked closely with veteran musicians, and gotten it right.
The ones that achieved this, did it so well that it became hard to distinguish their voices from the older artists.
In actuality, they are so similar to the veteran musicians, both artists become one personality for the duration of the song.
Here are the collaborations done far, that we’ve enjoyed:
Zlatan ft Obesere – Egungun be Careful Remix
The remix might not be one to write home about, but the collab is.
Zlatan and Obesere brought the best out of each, they were well mixed. At the onset of his career, Obesere was referred to as the African Michael Jackson, and he sure brought on that vibe into this song.
Obesere added the necessary spice to the remix of Egungun be Careful.

2Baba ft Dr Victor Olaiya – Baby Jowo Remix
2face got on stage with the late veteran musician, adding his African Queen tone to the remix of Baby Jowo.
This remix is a great companion to the original song, and we will remember Dr Victor Olaiya every time we listen to it.
Wizkid ft Femi Kuti – Jaiye Jaiye
Jaiye Jaiye is the first single on Wizkid’s sophomore album, Chosen.
Femi Kuti contributed his instrumentals to the song, blowing away on his trumpet while Wizkid sang, thanking God for being able to, “Jaiye Jaiye.”
Olamide ft KWAM 1 – Anifowose
Olamide takes us through a journey of his childhood, telling a tale of the sufferings he encountered through life until he made it.
Mp3bullet.ng believes that Olamide regards King Wasiu Ayinde Marshall (K1 De Ultimate) as a role model, which is one of the things that makes this song so poignant.
Yemi Alade ft Angelique Kidjo – Shekere
Shekere is a subtle remix of Angelique Kidjo’s song, Wombo Lombo , and it couldn’t have been better. This is the best collaboration on this list.
The video, the sound, the rhymes, the dance, everything was in sync.
Typical of songs by Yemi Alade, Shekere puts a beat to your feet, and Angelique Kidjo‘s voices persuades you to join in the fun.
