Wizkid

A trending video which captured the moment a group of foreign On-Air personalities (OAPS) said know one would have known Nigerian singer Wizkid without the support of Canadian rapper, Drake.

The video showed one of the four radio presenters pointing that if it was not for the influence  Drake, nobody outside Africa would know about Wizkid.

In strong agreement to his position in what appeared to be perceived as subtle shade at the Nigerian act, another presenter categorically stated that ‘nobody knows Wizkid’ and went on to back up his assertion with an explanation, saying despite efforts being made to push the narrative of the Nigerian-born singer as the face of afrobeats, it still remains to be widely contested.

He added that promoters tried to make Wizkid look like the Sean Paul of afrobeats, but he is not even close to half of what the Jamaican dancehall rapper was doing.

Speaking further, he submitted that there is no star of afrobeats yet.

In contrast to their opinion, another host on the radio programme submitted that Wizkid and Davido remain worthy of mention. that when it comes to the face of Afrobeats.

Reacting, he stated that it was only music heads that are familiar with the African superstars, adding that 90% of people in the United Kingdom do not know Wizkid.
