Meanwhile, some music buffs have hailed the planned collaboration. “This is great news, as it is heartwarming to see such a talented Nigerian artiste being given a wider platform. However, maybe it was only a matter of time. It’s no news that Akon has collaborated with so many artistes that we now struggle to keep count! In fact, just a while ago, we heard of similar talks between Akon and Tuface’s former band mate, Faze. Any which way, we await the results of this African Connection,” one music critic said of the planned connection.
