Ciara has spent much of the last week in Nigeria, after being in town for a private function.
Before departing, the R&B star took to the streets of Lagos, where she danced it up to some of the region’s top AfroBeats tunes.
Speaking on the experience, Super Ci shared with her 10 million Instagram followers…

Come through Ci!
Love this! Would be awesome if she injected a measure of AfroBeats into her upcoming album. Not many of the Western acts are doing so, hence it could be an original angle.
Even if not, we’ll continue to hit “play” on this.
