Earlier today lailasnews published a report where some American OAPs claimed Wizkid was nobody before Drake.
According to members of the Road Podcast, Wizkid would have been widely unknown safe for the fact that he worked with Drake.
The Podcast crew attributed any success Wizkid enjoys in America largely to the exposure given to him by OVO honcho Drake with whom he made ‘One Dance’ with. A particular podcaster said ‘Wizkid is trying to be the Sean Paul of Afrobeat but he is not even close’. He went on to say there is really no poster boy for Afrobeat music.
The controversial video has definitely reached the eyes of The AltarPlate CEO as he took to his IG handle to voice his displeasure. In his words:
first of all….. i dont know who the fuck this oyinbo albaino is, saying there’s no star of afro beats; your fathers and your presidents know the great fela Anikulakpo kuti , and still respect him till date, wizkid, Davido ,burna boy, 2face idibia,and many more Don’t need Sean Paul or drake to be known as star as they are…. you Americans should respect our sound and culture(AFRICA), 💪 I CAN’T STAND DISRESPECT. I SUPPORT PEOPLE; NOT PARTY #africa#respect#afrobeatz#culture#kingmaker#HarrysongInspireMonday …pls let’s fish out this guy’s social media handle and correct his upbringing👊
