Nigerian artistes are notorious for promising and failing, from music videos to albums to collaborations.

This has not stopped music fans from hoping that their favorite stars will bless them with new music.

In the past year alone, we’ve been promised some mind-blowing collaborations.

A Wizkid and Nicki Minaj sizzler, a Tiwa Savage and Coldplay love song, a Tekno and Drake chart topper, but all of these are yet to happen so here are 5 previously teased international  collaborations, by and featuring Nigerian artistes, that we’re still looking forward to.

1. Tiwa Savage and Coldplay

It's been 10 months since Tiwa Savage revealed to her fans that she was working on a song with the Grammy-winning band, Coldplay.

To convince fans that this was a reality, the Mavin Records first lady even shared a video of Coldplay's front man, Chris Martin rocking out to her hit song, "Ma Lo".

So, we are keeping our fingers crossed.

2. Wizkid and Nicki Minaj

It's been over a year since Wizkid shared a picture of himself and Nicki Minaj, leading to talks of a highly anticipated collaboration.

A few months ago, Wizkid rekindled the hopes of his fans when he announced that the song was ‘coming soon’.

Hopefully this will translate to the song dropping before the last day of 2018.nicki minaj and wizkid

3. Alicia Keys and Wizkid

It’s been almost 24 whole months gone since 15-time Grammy winner, Alicia Keys mentioned a possible collaboration with Wizkid, and the Starboy mentioned that he had created music with Ailcia Keys in a Tweet.

If the song sees the light of day, it would be epic.

4. Tekno and Drake

Since Drake shared a picture of Tekno at work in his studio, fans have been patiently waiting for the end result.

While Tekno inspired the rapper's record-shattering fifth LP, 'Scorpion', he did not feature on it.

There is, however, still hope that Tekno's upcoming debut album will contain a song with Drake.

Tekno do something.

Tekkkkkkkkkkkk time

5. Burna Boy and Timbaland

Burna Boy has been going on an international collaboration spree that includes international musicians like  J-Hus, Lily Allen and rock band, Fall Out Boy.

In February, he teased fans on social media of an upcoming track with the legendary American music producer and musician, Timbaland.

This had fans shaking with anticipation
