In the wake of last weekend’s surprise re-release of Wizkid’sOjuelegbafeaturing Drakeand Skepta, the Internet was buzzing with praise, excitement and for most Nigerians, pride. Although this is not the first time that a well-known Nigerian artiste has collaborated with an international artiste: Davido and Meek Mill or Wizkid and Tyga ; but this, this took us all, at least me by surprise.
Drake is one of today’s most commercially successful artists with over (And one of Canada’s greatest exports.) Wizkid, on the other hand, has been immensely successful both in and out of Africa. So it kind of makes sense why this is such a huge deal.
