If you like Afrobeats, please don’t download my forthcoming album – Wizkid

Award-winning Nigerian singer Wizkid, born Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun, has issued a strong warning to music fans on social media.

In a post on his verified Instagram page on March 15th, 2024, Wizkid stated that those who consider Afrobeats their favorite music genre should not attempt to download his upcoming album.

Like Burna Boy, Wizkid has moved away from Afrobeats towards a new sound influenced by Davido, Portable, and other Nigerian artists.

The Grammy Award-winning artist emphasized that he is not an Afrobeats artist and should not be labeled as such.

In his words; “I am not a fvcking Afrobeats artiste! don’t call me that hoe!, I’m not Afro anything bitch.”

Rebranding himself as a new version of Wizkid, he made it clear that fans of his older music, such as “Pakurumo,” should not expect the same style on the upcoming album.
