International stars go gaga over Nigerian music.
Aug 6, 2015 So can we just talk about all this delicious international media exposure Wizkid is getting? First it was Drake lending his rap vocals to Wizkid’s Ojuelegba, next it was him chilling and subsequently Skyping with Chris Brown.
Now famous beat-maker Swiss Beatz can’t get enough of Wizzy’s Ayo album and has spread the virus to his wifey Alicia Keys who’s been heard jamming to his 2013 hit song Caro as well as former EME colleague Skale’s Shake Body.
This is definitely excellent PR for Wizkid and by extension, Nigerian music – having such respected names in music genuinely appreciate our indigenous flavor of music will open doors, further diminishing the divide between local and international.
Lesson for the day, keep it 100% naija and you can’t go wrong.
