Ice Prince Collaborates With Jamaican Singer Gyptian

2011 saw a number of collaborations between Nigerian entertainers and their foreign counterparts. Chocolate City’s Ice Prince has now joined the list with his recent hook-up with Jamaican dancehall/Reggae act Gyptian.

Ice Prince seized the opportunity to work with Gyptian who flew into the country for a quick performance at the recently concluded Calabar Festival on Friday, December 30, 2011.
The acts recorded a remix to ‘Magician’, a single off Ice Prince’s debut record ‘Everybody Likes Ice Prince’.

We’ve been in talks with Gyptian before he flew in but they meeting in person just accelerated things. They have recorded a song but will be releasing it later’, Nanle, Ice Prince’s manager tells NET.

Nanle also tells NET that a video for the remix has already been shot. It was directed by Clarence Peters.
2011 was busy for the ‘superstar’ rapper; he released his debut album and performed in a quite a number of African countries and the UK.

Gyptian is credited with the monster calypso smash hit song ‘Hold yuh‘ and is signed to New York-based VP Records.
