But despite all this accolade, one man stands to be corrected in person of popular Nigerian gospel singer, Lanre Teriba.
In a recent interview with TVC’s Entertainment Splash, disclosed that Americans see Wizkid as an upcoming artiste.
Speaking at the interview, Lanre Teriba who disclosed that he travels a lot, stated that Nigerian artistes are still seen as local musicians in the lens of foreigners alongside Wizkid who they see as an upcoming artiste.
I travel a lot and I can tell you that Nigerian artistes are still seen as local musicians in the lens of foreigners.
Even wizkid is seen as an upcoming artiste. I go on tour every year, I will be in America from May to July this year, but we, Gospel artistes have a problem with the media.
They are not supporting us or mentioning us at all. At the moment, I’m trying to do something with Kirk Franklin.
