After facing backlash for his comments, Wizkid urged his detractors to educate themselves and do some research before jumping to conclusions.

He defended his stance by emphasizing that while he is African, he refuses to be limited to just one genre and prides himself on creating diverse and exceptional music.

His words: “U lost people always want someone to educate you. U got your phone Google research shit or take a flight and see the world don’t be ignorant and stupid all the time. Listen, am I African ? Yes! But I do make all sorts of music. Fine music! But I don’t want these labeled just afrobeats. That’s like saying every American artiste makes rap. That’s stupid. This is why no matter how good or amazing the music we make be it RnB or whatever other genre, we all get nominated in one Africa category or the other. I’ve made songs from different genres of music. Made in Lagos is not an ” “Afrobeats album. Thats a fusion of different sounds. Real music! The word afrobeats was made up by y’all to put all we make into one box. Fela created afrobeat!! I make All sorts of music. Fusion of sounds! “I’m a artiste” before anything else.. True to my art.
