OUR 5 FAVORITE SONGS FROM WIZKID
Wizkid is definitely a major figure when it comes to the afrobeats music scene. He highly participated to the export of afrobeats music outside of Nigeria and outside of the African continent. From Drake, Chris Brown, Damian Marley to Burna Boy, Tems, Seyi Shay, Wizkid know how to be surrounded by the best of the best. It was difficult to choose our 5 favorite songs from Wizkid among all of his tracks, especially after the release of his last album Made in Lagos which gathers so many songs we love. But we’ve tried and here’s the result.
GINGER FEAT BURNA BOY (MADE IN LAGOS, 2020)
As mentioned earlier, we absolutely love Made in Lagos, the last album of Wizkid released in October 2020. It has soon become our favorite album from the Nigerian singer, so it was difficult not to pick only songs from this album for this article to be honest. But we stuck with one, Ginger that gathers both Wizkid and our man Burna Boy!
OJUELEGBA (AYO, 2014)
Ojuelegba is probably the first song that made us fall in love with Wizkid. The song also had a huge international impact with the remix that features rappers Drake and Skepta. This one is one of our everlastings feel good song.
OMALICHA (AYO, 2014)
This one is also from Wizkid’s album Ayo, which means joy in yoruba. And one thing is sure, this album really brought us joy! We like the good vibes of this song that really make you want to dance. And after a very difficul year, this is what we need right now!
The sensuality that comes out this song and its music video! It could have completely fit in our Sexual Healing playlist. Wizkid blessed us with another hit that we keep listening over and over again without getting tired of it. Talking about sexual healing…
BROWN SKIN GIRL WITH BEYONCÉ, BLUE IVY AND SAINT JHN (THE LION KING: THE GIFT, 2020)
We’re cheating a little bit putting this song here as the main artist is queen B, but the song is so meaningful for all our brown skin girls, that we have to salute Wizkid participation to this beautiful Black girl magic anthem.
