Donnie posted a series of photos with Neil Rodgers and Duran Duran, and began writing, “What a surreal evening! I’m so humbled. Thank you @nilerodgers & @duranduran!”
Nile Rodgers is an American record producer, guitarist, and composer, and the co-founder of Chic.
Wahlberg wrote, “Nile, quite simply one of the greatest musical geniuses the world has ever known (and I only that to one musical genius). To say that I know him (even a little bit) after decades of loving the music he has performed/produced and been such an integral part of creating — is absolutely mind blowing to me. Truly a magical and lovely human being. 🤯 #CQForever ❤️”

“@duranduran — where do I even begin? First off, they still got it! Second, (and they may not know this) they are one of the bands that @nkotb were inspired by and looked to with awe when we were kids (and still do now). An amazing example for us, for decades. Thank you for being so gracious.”
