"He’s the first African artist I’ve been blessed to work with, and he didn’t know this, but at the time I was praying to God to bring something to me that would help to bring us all together through music.

"I think it’s so important we all make it our mission to build a bridge to the motherland. Let’s continue to uplift and build with our brothers and sisters. It’s what THEY fear the most... Strength in numbers. Love, your brother Diddy. See y’all soon! #BlackUnity #TWICEASTALL."
