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.
so Buena boy woro si woro na lyrics abi, I can feel your pain bro.

I'm not 'bro' and I don't know what you mean by 'woro si woro'. But I know that all songs in Burna Boy's African Giant album are full of very good and dope lyrics. He was nominated for Grammy for a reason and those who nominated him are not as igno-rant as you are.

You go see person wey no get money no get fame , we no fit sing wey no get awards dey advise person wey get fame, money, sabi sing , wey Beyonce feature... Don't u see u are beginning to go mental..

Wizkid needs no song writers.. He's s most relevant, respectable and d greatest artist in Africa!

Baba no b social media person yet he's this relevant.. Let ur fave try this and see if your fave won't lose relevance in 2mnths

Respectable that signed a slavery deal with Sony...lolz
The only Nigerian artist with a proper international deal and who is respected is Burnaboy.

Greatest ....lol .. he no near am... Tell him to get at least one Grammy nomination for HIS own body of work first .... Where you put Ladysmith, Kidjo, Femi Kuti ....����

Oga keep quiet, I was just walking yesterday and I heard wizkid "ESCAPE " ft Akon playing on some random MP3 jam box I had to stop and ask for the song name. That song alone made me a new person and on how I view life.
Mans a legend.
Re: Don't You Think Wizkid Should Start Hiring Songwriters? by Larrykayflex: 10:24am On Aug 02
Well Wizkid is very talented,but he is currently loosing his value here in 9ja and Africa as a whole just because of these international shit, forgetting how he started from the street,he forgot to carry along the street,9ja na ur original background bro never forget,all these oyinbo were e dey run after no go take another country over their self Lai Lai,you supposed to dey represent us not dumping us like a garbage my gee.respect cause you are great musician
Re: Don't You Think Wizkid Should Start Hiring Songwriters? by lighthousearc: 10:41am On Aug 02
And who told you WIZKID doesn't have ghost writers? most artist don't write all their songs. Davido is open to song writers and doesn't hide it, he even acknowledge them. There's nothing bad hiring song writers...If Beyonce or MJ can hire song writers so what?

seriously! you called burna boy legend, what will you call WizKid then??
I have nothing against burna boy, if he deserve the Grammy and he wins it good for him. WizKid lame lyrics brought him to where he is today, so advising him to get a song writer @ this stage of his life is an understatement, he has won numerous awards (including Grammy nominations) with his so called lyrics, burna boy he's doing well but trust me he hasn't get to WizKid level no argument on that.

burna "Africa giant" is dope agreed, but you see WizKid is all around, so versatile and can easily switch to any genre you gave him. both is an afro beat artist but can't be compare in terms of delivering.

Gotten to his level...Loooll

You dont even know about Wizkid enough. The highlight of his career is his feature in One dance. Based on Individual performance, he is nowhere near Davido talkless Burna

Uptill now Wizkid is the only A list African artist who doesn't have a solo video with 100M YouTube views, No Spotify single with 25M plays, No Solo certification in US, UK or Europe. See just thank GOD for Drake in his life. If you really know what's going on in industry, you will know Wizkid has been technically retired.

I even thought you knew these numbers....���❗

Grammy Nomination for a feature in One Dance...is what you are comparing to a Grammy Nod for your own album

In the last 20 years, only Femi Kuti, Seun Kuti and Burnaboy have received Grammy nomination for THEIR ALBUM.

Burna is the only African in history to win AFRIMMA,SOUNDCITY AFRICAN ARTIST OF THE YEAR, BET, EMA, BRITS NOMINATION AND GRAMMY NOMINATION IN ONE YEAR. THE MOST CHARTED ALBUM EVER MADE BY AN AFRICAN IS AFRICAN GIANT. ITS HIGHER THAN SFTOS ON ALL CHARTS.

Am surprised you don't know these things, you are asking me if Burnaboy is a legend...lol

Burna is the only Nigerian in history to have a debut album in the Billboard charts. For a Nigerian, he has the most number of albums on the Billboard charts (3)

Wizkid has only one.

I Know you like Wizkid, but don't attempt to belittle Burna...no even reason am.

Weither feature or not feature Grammy recognize his presence in one dance and that why the song was nominated. As per awards, you fall my hand big time, there is no award you mentioned here that Wiz hasn't won except the one he has won and burna hasn't be it in a single year or different year, (Google their awards and verify) Wiz started winning awards the very year he came to limelight (2010), burna has to wait 3 year before winning his first award, am a big fan of both artiste trust me but there should be clarity about who have achieved more.

lolllll, forget about drake, he'll surely get to top with or without him, drake was the one who Famz him, dats an achievement on his professionalism same has Beyonce and every other top artiste he has worked with. A for youTube views, it's good for an A-list artiste but trust me it's not views, that's why an award such as Grammy cannot be bought through music platform views. Song as Despacito (the viral Spanish song) never won a Grammy even with over 5 billion views on YouTube, he get Reason why... Music platform views are good but that doesn't define who you as an artist.
