It's hightime he started hiring them oo or else Davido still has so many years of relevance ahead of him... The last music I loved that Wizkid performed in it is Ma lo with Tiwa Savage.. All those ones he's been releasing after Ma lo be it single or remix he's just been using AGIDI to stay on top or still be relevant

Most songs from Nigerian artiste just hyped , so it's good music for some time and then you can't even listen to it next year.

This is why Tu baba is still the best, you can still listen to his first album and enjoy it , it's classic and timeless. This is what music should be, not jump up and down shouting nonsense.

If wizkid need song writers, it means davido needs millions of song writers grin

Imagine listening to songs like Betty butter, in the future, that's TRASH, he doesn't even have one classic song grin


Wizkid song "smile" went well with me, it's a classic

He doesn't make music about shouting anymore

I prefer his calm music now, that's growth cool


Davido is by far better when it comes to content .... Lyrics

Place any of WizKid current hit side by side davido and point out the theme of both songs and how the lyrics did justice to it

Most Nigerian based musicians need better songs. I am tired of listening to songs based on drugs, alcohol, money and women especially singing about their backsides and stuff like that

He doesn’t need any song writer. He only needs to sit his ass down and write a better song for himself. He definitely has the talent to do that, just that he’s become lazy lately. Who will blame him though?

He is not lazy...it is because he is signed to a foreign record label who is always changing his sounds and promoting him outside nigeria

Great point ...although his music life is actually non of my business...but let me make my little opinion known here.... Am a very big lover of wizkid and am sure millions are also..but am not a lover of him cos he can compose good lyrics but only cos his a sweet singer and his gat vibes...let me be sincere with you...."wizkid has always been a freestyle artiste"...from the days of "tease me" and likes...go back and listen to him well.....even till this moment go check most of his song lyrics u will notice they are mostly meaningless....now that is a trend and sincere I ave little idea about music and I can tell u"hip hop" is one of the few music genre you can do without really having a true music skill...with good vibe....beat and fan base u are good to go....the major reason why pple are beginning to complain is cos some talented artiste have ignited a standard in the Nigerian hip hop ....now listen to pple like...simi....Joeboy, .... Fireboy...Peruzzi...mayokun...teni...this pple are outright song writers and they keep giving hits with nt just good beats but powerful lyrics... wizkid was and is never a composer....."joro" for example trended cos of his popularity cos the music and lyrics was total rubbing...at a point he changed to the fela like afro hip hop but he still couldn't express it well....he will really need to employ a good song writer cos as it stands ...real talents keeps springing up and if he isn't delivering so well with his fame....pple will simple look away finally
cool ..................FACT......................

good beats and great voice can only make you shine for sometime, but only good lyrics can make a music star shine forever. Not only WizKid, but all Nigerian hiphop artists should work on their lyrics. It is not only 'my baby' 'my Ferrari' or 'my money' we want to hear from their songs. They should take a cue from legends like Bob Marley, fela and others whose songs are still popular till today.
as for WizKid, i'm one of his biggest fans but i must admit that he is already loosing it. He is a good singer, no doubt, but he is not a good musician and he isn't a great songwriter either. More than 80% of Nigerian afro hiphop artists are also like that, including Davido, olamide, zlatan, tiwa and others. My respect goes to tuface, burna, sound sultan, asa, Duncan mighty, MI and some very few others.

The saying goes that you can't give what you don't have.

From the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks.

The only things in their minds are, "my baby, my Ferrari, my money, my house, weed"

It isn't a coincidence that both Wizkid and Davido are both baby daddies to multiple women.

I'm not sure the two of them can survive the next 5-10 years, professionally of course.

Although Drake never came closer after the recording of that song by failing to appear in the Music Video, Wizkid's "Come Closer" was an instant hit.

Take a breath! Every societies all over the world enjoy different genres of music.

Lil Wayne, Birdman and many others makes noise, yet they've won Grammy Award. It depends on what sells per time.

To me having a songwriter isn't a crime,even songwriting is a profession for some people just as singing is a profession for some .A lot of artists in the US and other foreign countries also make use of song writer, the main priority is that the artist is a able to deliver a good music...

Even in the US, it's rare to see an artist produce an album by himself alone, they need the job of songwriters and even people help them to do interludes also, some rappers even use singers as to help them with chorus and the rest.....

How do u think some artists are able to come up with 17 tracks or more in an album. Lol u think everything is only by themselves and the next year the same artist might drop another album...

Even rappers help rappers write lyrics,

If an artiste doesn’t like how he sounds then they can write his verse to their liking. I like the guy for that reason. He sounds different depending on which artiste he gets featured by. Burna Boy is also following the same example. Nigerian fans are pretty loyal, whatever you sound like means nothing to them. They will quickly accept you regardless. The other one has released many trash songs, but his fan base is quick to sweep them under the rug.
Re: Don't You Think Wizkid Should Start Hiring Songwriters? by angelfallz(m): 3:32pm On Aug 01
Guys please, in Nigeria it's not about lyrics. Just have a song with good dancing beats, basically a club banger, if you want sing rubbish majority don't care your song would blow. See Rema.
Having said that, I think it's obvious something is up with Wizkid.
And I agree with the OP, Wizkid's music has been slacking for a very long time.

We should also pray for him, you can't call yourself a Wizkid fan but you don't remember him in your prayers.

that's life for you everything in life has its season. if you began listening to music from 80s ,90,early 2000 you will trust me that those who produced hit songs have all backed out . Wizkid should be preparing himself and label for retirement he has made the money , whether song writter or not his time in music is packing up.His a great artist that can't be joked with the only thing keeping him is old Glory .

The OP shud hire brain hawkers too


Na ur own worst pass .... Everybody have that 'stuff' in a particular musician that trickle their fancy , as such, to the OP, in his own opinion , he no longer sees that in Wizkid's new pattern...A Babbar told me same thing in uromi, Edo State, that , the Miz of our local language like pidgin, Yoruba in Wizkid's chorus always strikes him to like Wizkid songs...Generally, Nigerians are more concerned on the beat and not really the message , which most musicians tries to meet up with rather than the songs...I expected to the OP to have also look at it from that angle also.
