Wizkid’s opinion on rap music in Nigeria has elicited mixed reactions.
The award-winning singer declared the genre of music dead and boring in a recent interview.
The father of four claims he does not listen to rap music because it is “dead and boring.”
He went on to say that rappers always use the same method, rapping over the same beats with the same flow.
Wizkid made this known during an interview with 10 magazine, he said,
“Afrobeats is the new pop. I said two million copies in America off of one song! Even some American artists don’t have a diamond record. If I’m being honest. I don’t listen to any other genre of music anymore.
I don’t listen to rap – that shit is boring to me. It’s dead now, it’s tired. These guys do the same shit, rap on the same beats and the same flows”.
His comment on the rap industry, didn’t sit well with many as they dragged him for it.
