Nigerian-American singer, Jidenna at the Vibe.NG forum titled

``Community Meeting With The Chief: Album Versus Singles InDigital

Era" recently held in Lagos said that his music, lyrics, sounds and

collaborations are all geared towards building a bridge between

people, races and nations. He further explained that it is the reason

his songs have a blend of different cultural sounds especially the

high-life blend with hip-hop so that all can relate to it.



It will be recalled that Jidenna, recently released his debut album

titled ``The Chief" which he explained was named after his late

father's title status which he intends to attain through his music.



Jidenna revealed that he spent thirty days alone without seeing anyone

to write the album. He advised artists to see themselves as a small

business and the earlier they realize that, the higher their chance of

survival in the industry but if not, they could go into oblivion.



Jidenna said that one way he will push his songs in Nigeria is to do

collaborations with Nigerian artists from different genres of music

because he is versatile. ``I can decide to do a record with BurnaBoy,

Wizkid or Davido," he said.



Omalicha,a broadcaster and panelist at the forum, commended Jidenna

for his album and how he was able to blend different sounds to make it

cut across to both his fans in Nigeria and America. Godwin Tom,

to educate people more because the more educated people in the music
