Nigerian music talents and YBNL star Fireboy DML is about to go global as British singer Ed Sheeran is set to feature in the remix of his song titled Peru.
Peru is one of the trending songs of the year and is currently making waves in Nigeria and Ghana.
Ed Sheeran while speaking to Elton John said he received a message to remix “Peru” and he obliged.
Ed Sheeran explained how he got to work with the YBNL star. He said; “So I got sent this a week ago, to remix it. Someone, a friend of mine, Jamal [Edwards] who runs SBTV sent it to me.
“He 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.”
Ed Sheeran has worked with the likes of Wizkid and Burna Boy in the past, which means Fireboy is the third Nigerian star he would be working with.
