Wizkid has been making promotional runs for his recently released single Come Closer featuring Drake. He stopped in London to speak to Jasmine Dotiwala of Channel 4 about the Afropop music genre and the African sound taking over. He also spoke about his musical journey so far.
“My Dad used to fight me every time. ‘Don’t go to the studio, stay at home and study’. I just had my dreams and I followed them here. But now, people take pictures with him on the streets,” he told Channel 4.
“He’s just so proud, and that’s my joy to make them happy.”
Wizkid said Afrobeats and Afropop sounds will eventually influence the music coming out of the Western scene and ultimately “take over the world”.
