Legendary American R&B star, Donell Jones was in Lagos, Nigeria over the weekend where he headlined the Classic FM Classic Concert to celebrate its 10th anniversary.
Donell Jones in a backstage interview at the star studded event commended Classic FM for organizing the concert and also gave kudos to Nigerian artistes describing them as ‘incredible’.
In his words, “its amazing, the Nigerian artistes themselves are incredible, they brought out the best in Mya and Next and myself, I mean its beautiful and I appreciate the fact that Classic FM has been playing our music all these years, it feels great”!
Donell Jones added that “I love it! You know, they were singing our songs, you know, I’ve been here a few times though they were private parties, but its different when you have the chance to be around the fans and hear them sing your songs. You don’t really know how your music is perceived in other places so for me to come here and for them to pick my music up like that and be singing the songs with me like that men, it was blissful”.
Other artists who performed at the event include bob group Next, the ageless Mya, including Nigerian icons, Styl Plus and 9ice.
