American business magnate, Bill Gates on Wednesday said his daughter, Phoebe, was excited he would see Nigerian music stars – Burna Boy and Rema while he visit Nigeria.

Gates said this while delivering his opening address at an event in Lagos State.

The philanthropist visited President Bola Tinubu alongside Aliko Dangote on Monday.

The visitation was part of the Gates Foundation’s commitment to working closely with communities and leaders to support innovation.

Speaking on his 20-year-old daughter’s enthusiasm, Gates said it was the possibility of meeting Afrobeats stars such as Burna Boy and Rema.

“When my daughter Phoebe heard I was coming to Nigeria, she said, “You’re lucky because you get to see Burna Boy and Rema, so I had to look them up…because I’m so ‘hip’. But I remember the last time I was here, I got to see Davido & Wizkid perform,” the philanthropist said.

Gates added that Nigeria is filled with creative minds and Afrobeats from Nigeria are popular everywhere. He also recalled his last visit where Davido and Wizkid perform.

“Of course, being here in Nigeria, I can’t help but mention the amazing creativity that goes on here.

“Afrobeats from Nigeria are popular everywhere. When my daughter Phoebe heard I was coming to Nigeria, she said, ‘You’re lucky to go see Burna Boy and Rema,” he said.

“But I also remember, the last time I was here, I did get to see Davido and Wizkid perform and I was quite impressed with that. So, my kids think I’ve come to a very hip place,” he added.
