Wizkid has risen to a global phenomenon and has over the years set the trend in afrobeat for Nigerians and Africans as a whole. He had an interesting interview with capital extra. Having already worked with the liked of Drake, Skepta and many more, the Nigerian star is undoubtedly at the top of his game and he took some time to sit down with Robert Bruce to reflect on his journey through the world of #Afrobeats so far.
With fellow African artists including Burna Boy and Davido capturing the ears of a worldwide audience, Wizkid describes the unity amongst his fellow artists and explains how Afrobeats will only get bigger and bigger as we move into 2020.
As the interview progressed, Robert Bruce asked Wizkid what unity is back in Nigeria. Wizkid replied, “Yeah man, everyone loves everybody – well, to me sha, me, I love everybody. I’m friends with everyone, I support everyone. It’s love and it’s just amazing to see what’s happening to the scene right now. Everyone is doing their thing, everyone is killing it.
“From, you know Burna Boy, Davido to the new cats, Fireboy, Rema… I feel like every kid from Africa deserves a chance to win.”
