There was a time when African musicians made a name for themselves by covering American songs and artists but now it looks as if the script has been flipped. R Kelly just did a remix of Davido’s massive hit, “If” and the whole internet has lost its mind.
Kellz stepped to the mic and lent his timeless R&B vocals to a verse on “If”, a song that has proven to be one of the biggest songs in the continent so far this year. We didn’t believe the headlines ourselves but a quick look on social media tells us that this remix is not only real, but also exceptionally good.
The R Kelly cover was only a minute long though and considering the hype it’s caused, it would certainly be worth his time to consider making a longer version (with Davido himself?)
