I hope there is some truth to this because the last time something like this came up, it was the Limpopo master claiming he was going to feature Nicki Minaj on a track.
Anyways, rumors suggest that Pop sensation, Iyanya Mbuk is trying to secure a duet with sexy American rapper, Nicki Minaj.
A very secret and top industry spy confirmed the Project Fame winner is willing to pay as much as $300,000 – approximately N50m – to jump on a track with him.
With talks already having reached an advanced stage between both camps, Iyanya, who just returned to the country from London where he performed at a classy society wedding, is set to jet back to the United States to seal the deal.
The source says: – ‘It’s an on-going project’. ‘He has to now go back to Los Angeles again to try and get her on the track’.
Minaj, who has won 4 American Music Awards, 8 BET Awards, two MTV Music Awards, 5 Billboard Music Awards among others, is signed to Young Money Entertainment.
Funny enough, Iyanya’s manager, Ubi Franklin says it’s all nonsense — ‘Who said that, where did you hear that? There’s no gist like that, if anything like that would happen, you’ll hear from our publicist.’
When probed further, however on the existence or otherwise of such a paid collaboration with Nicki Minaj, Franklin said: ‘I’ll be so glad if it happens, I’m very open to the idea of doing a song with her.’ It is not the first time a Nigerian music act would be paying for collaborations with foreign acts, with the likes of D’Banj and P-Square among those who have paid huge sums for collaborative efforts with US stars.
