Kcee, the Nigerian singer, says he had initially planned on featuring Chris Brown or Trey Songz on ‘Limpopo’, his hit single.
The 43-year-old singer spoke about his 2013 hit song during an episode of the ‘Afrobeats: The Backstory’ documentary.
The documentary which centers on the rise of the Afrobeats genre premiered on Netflix on Thursday. It was produced by Ayo Shonaiya.
According to him, ‘Limpopo’ was the first song he recorded after his split from Presh, his then music partner.
He said while making the beat for ‘Limpopo’, he had initially thought of featuring any of the two US singers on the track.
“Limpopo was like a miracle for me. When I broke up with Presh, a week after I went back to the studio. I locked myself in the studio and I put up my team,” he said.
“You know when I found this team which Harrysong was part of, Del B. Dr Amir, a whole lot of them. I put them together and we would work morning till midnight.
“We would sleep, wake up, we record so I was recording like a mad man. So I told Del B that yeah I spoke to my brother and we’re planning to feature either Trey Songz or Chris Brown on the project.
“I needed a sound that will balance Afrobeats and make those guys be able to feel us.”
