Comparing me to Fela is disrespectful- Starboy,Wizkid
By Patricia Uyeh
Starboy, Ayodeji Balogun, popularly known as Wizkid, is one of the biggest thing to hit the music industry. His music is not only doing well locally but also globally.
In a recent chat with HipTV, the ‘Daddy yo’ crooner talks about his upbringing, music and more.
Reacting to people comparing him to the late Afrobeat legend, Fela Anikulapo Kuti, Wizkid had this to say:
“You cannot compare,let us not use that word because that is like a disrespect when you are using Wizkid and Fela in the same sentence.You can’t compare both of us.I have his tattoos on my body. Fela inspires me like everything he has done with his music and legacy. He inspires me to do more. He is just an inspiration and motivation for me to more.”
Speaking on what inspired his latest song, Sock,Wizkid said that it was nothing in particular, just the vibe.
