Ayi Jihu said she was proud and honored to perform in front of the Chinese Commerce Minister, Brazilian Vice President and all the other dignitaries at the event in Macau. “I feel so blessed to have had this opportunity especially to do so with Edu Casanova who is an amazing performer, singer and songwriter. All of the artist here are amazing, especially the ones coming from Africa. Back stage all we do is sing and dance and make music. The energy and joy they have is infectious. They really just love life and what they do. This has been an amazing experience for me and I am so happy that these great artists and performers all accepted me as one of them. We are really just one world and sometimes it takes things like this for us to see just how much the same we all are, while recognizing our differences. I will never forget this experience.
I truly believe Ilumina is a hit song and will do well for everyone involved even though it is in Portuguese and also English, I think it will do well everywhere including in English speaking countries. Edu wrote a great track here and Peter Doc Bielig (who produced the track) has made a hit record out of it. It was cool to work with Doc B and Stevie Eagle E (EEDB) on this project.
