The London Boy features on the Nigerian artist’s album Fire Of Zamani with the collaborative track Mercy, and will be taking to the stage at Eko Hotel & Suites on 23 November.

He will be on the same line-up as fellow Nigeria first-timer Wale as well as resident musicians Modenine, Olamide, Phyno andof course Ice Prince himself.

He wasn’t welcomed by the biggest of crowds, but shortly after arriving in the country with BBC 1Xtra’s DJ Edu, the 22-year-old told reporters:

Loving Lagos already. It’s gonna be fun, I’m loving the culture shock already.

Love at first sight!

Maybe Chip will have also gained a few more Nigerian fans to send him off on his journey back.
