Nigerian singing sensation Fireboy DML linked up with British musician Ed Sheeran on a remix of his globetrotting smash hit ‘Peru’.
Peru remix was released on the 24th of December, and has amassed over 1million views on YouTube in less than 24 hours.
The song’s impressive performance brought it to the attention of the Peruvian government, who have encouraged their citizens to listen to the song, teasing that hit song may have been inspired by the country’s name.
“PERU PARA, PERU PERU PARA!!! Seems like @edsheeran and @fireboydml were inspired by our country to launch their newest hit?”
Have you already listened to it? It’s called “Peru” and sounds really catchy! MarcaPerú #Peru #EdSheeran,” read the tweet.
Peru is arguably YBNL act, Fireboy DML’s biggest hit since his breakthrough in 2019. He’s also joined the elite long list of Nigerian musicians to hit over 100 million streams on music platforms. #Star
