I have tried being a song writer for someone and he just told me honestly.

Your lyrics are good but Nigerians don't care, you can write any nonsense but as long as they can dance to it you will blow

Wizkid is finished musically. He is living on past glory. The mistake he made with his career was leaving EME/Banky W early instead of allowing Banky nature him to further growth

We will never see the EME Wizkid again undecided

Nah! He has done really well for himself after leaving EME, even though he hasn’t given us major hit albums like his first album.

Those hits songs that made him Wizkid where you the songwriter he hired?

Wizkids international fame came as a result of his talent, otherwise he won't be getting a collabo from Drake in the first place.

No matter how many 'ifs' and 'buts', you count, Wizkid will always remain way up there, as King.

This post just reminds me how Chelsea fans will not accept United have been better in the premier league last season despite finishing above them in 3rd position.

I'm surprised Wizkid is the only one you had to single out among all the trashy artistes in Nigeria.

Wizkid can write good songs, I think what he needs right now is inspiration. He hasn't written a good song in years but some of his old songs are great. The person who really needs a songwriter is Yemi alade, that woman has the voice of an angel but she's misusing it, someone with a great voice like Yemi shouldn't be singing gibberish like abrokoto brokoto and so on. Shekere was pretty good but I think she really needs a songwriter, she's wasting her voice.

I agree. I love Wizkid as an artiste, but these days, his lyrics are beginning to sound the same and predictable. He needs more unique lyrics not just beats else he's bound to slowly fade out.

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?

Wizkid's inconsistency started when he began to sought-after international recognition after presumably having a strong African Fan base and a firm grip on the African Audience.

Dont know if I'm the only one seeing the nonsense that is this statement.

You say he started seeking INTERNATIONAL recognition after having a strong AFRICAN fan base. It sort of diminishes Africa, reducing it to a COUNTRY even though it is a continent comprising many different countries. Therefore, having an AFRICAN fan base means he already has an INTERNATIONAL fan base.

What should have been written there was that he started seeking INTERCONTINENTAL recognition and not international.

Bloggers, learn to choose your words wisely. A little bleep could make the difference between a good article and a total trash.

Rubbish music all he sings about is baby this baby that my woman sexy lady just the same nonsense. It gets boring after a while, at least Davido is more versatile and diverse not one dimensional.

Apart from Davido's "Back Then" featuring Naeto C which he claimed writing and production credit I don't know of any other song he wrote or produced. It's better for an established artist to buy songs using paid listeners to evaluate possible hits if he wants consistency. Rihanna, Beyonce, Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Taylor Swift, Chris Brown et al made timeless classics using hired writers and producers with their own little contribution.

wizard kid doesn't want to sing forever, he needs money, maybe join politics later in life, let his mumu fans keep ranting, they will be forgotten.

Salvation is personal, do those foolish fans think he survives on their 10 10 kobo.

That latest song from WizKid that a lady was dancing on the street ... Copy and paste the lyrics and davido song with that Jamaican guy and compare both for meaning

Then go back a bit and copy

Chioma my wife o lyrics and compare with any come closer with drake

Compare gobe and that Tinubu ne Eleni
Fashola ne Eleni lyrics


Do this for ten of their hit songs
