Chance the Rapper says his Black Star Line Festival in Ghana “was very successful,” but he’s “thinking about hosting the next one in Kingston, Jamaica.” He shared the news during his chat on Jimmy Fallon‘s Tonight Show, adding he and his team are still trying to talk things out.

“We’re still working it out in our heads. And we love the city of Accra and Ghana and West Africa as a whole,” he said. “We just want to continue to, like, create community in other spaces.”

The Ghana festival took place earlier this year and featured a star-studded lineup, including Erykah BaduDave ChappelleT-PainJeremihSarkodieTobe NwigweAsakaa Boys and M.anifest. “It was magical,” he said, as it held 52,000 people and is now “the largest concert in the history of Ghana.”

Chance also talked to Jimmy about being a coach on season 23 of The Voice and the time he was separated from his eldest daughter, Kensli, on a flight, and Martin Short offered her his seat.

“I super freaked out,” the rapper said. “He was really, really nice and I don’t think he knows who I am. So I think he just did it … that’s a really kind gesture.”

In addition to the interview, Chance played a round of Peanut Butter That’s My Jam Tic-Tac-Toe and took the stage to perform his recent song “Yah Know.”
