In case you don’t know, the Classic Man, Jidenna has a new project out.
Called 85 to Africa, Jidenna’s second studio album was released on August 23, 2019, through Wondaland Records and Epic Records.
This album which features guest appearances from GoldLink, St. Beauty, Mr Eazi, Mereba and Seun Kuti, follows the release of his debut album The Chief, and the EP, Boomerang.
As part of his media run to promote his album, Jidenna joined Ebro Darden on Apple Music’s Beats 1 to discuss “85 to Africa”.
According to Jidenna, the album was inspired by his experiences living in various African cities.
Last December, Jidenna was one of more than 100 African American celebrities who visited the country as part of the Full Circle trip which marked the beginning of observing 2019 as the Year of Return.
Last week, Jidenna talked passionately about his trip to Ghana in an interview with Charlamagne tha God on The Breakfast Show.
Meanwhile, in his interview with Ebro Darden on Apple Music’s Beats 1, Jidenna talked about naming the album in hopes that African Americans will visit, respect and invest in Africa…
Can we name Jidenna the Ambassador for Diasporan Affairs already?
