Is Wizkid Really Greater Than Tuface And Fela?


April 29, 2016
Wizkid is a great musician, no doubt. His music has been getting serious international exposure and recently, he was featured sampled in a Drake single, One Dance, which is currently number 3 on the Billboard hot 100. To add to his many milestones, his Instagram account just got verified.

He was recently hosted by the president of Sierra Leone and he shared this picture on his Instagram page.

On, April 28th, Drake’s 4th studio album, VIEWS, was released and it included the single with Wizkid. Wizkid was also credited as a producer on the album.

Nigerians were happy as expected but some people got a little too excited.

And said Wizkid is greater than music legends, Tuface Idibia, D’banj and Femi Kuti.

Some even ranked him above them.

And we’re wondering why Wizkid is being compared to Femi Kuti, who boasts 4 Grammy nominations.

Or D’banj, P-Square and Tuface who were the Nigerian musicians that paved the way for international collaborations.

When people compare Wizkid to Fela but still couldn’t hear his verse on the song.

Even if One Dance ever gets nominated for a Grammy, people shouldn’t sha forget the difference between an actual collaboration and a sample.
