Meanwhile, in another news…

French disc jockey, David Guetta recently said he sees budding Nigerian singer, Ayra Starr as the new version of Grammy winning musician, Rihanna.

The music producer said the 21-year-old singer’s music and vibe is unique, with the potential to appeal to audiences around the world.

Recall that David Guetta worked with the Mavin Records princess and American rapper Lil Durk on his latest song, titled ‘Big Fu.’

Speaking in a recent interview via Skype, the DJ said everybody in Paris has been talking about their song since it was released weeks ago.

Guetta said; “When people speak about Ayra Starr in the industry, a lot of us see her as the new Rihanna. Because she comes with her vibe that is very specific because of where she’s coming from. But she has the potential of crossing over into different cultures.

“Since we recorded, she is having even more hits. It’s crazzy. I’m French. I was in Paris and everyone was talking about her. I was shocked like, ‘This is amazing. An African artiste that’s killing it in Europe, killing it in the U.S, it’s not everyday. Last time I saw it was working with Akon.’”
