Why Wizkid’s New album is a victory for all Nigerian artistes
This project is a victory not just for Wizkid or Nigerian music but one particularly for the music fans, the ones who helped the artiste grow.
The much anticipated International mixtape from the star boy Wizkid, Sounds From The Other Side was finally released in the early hours of Friday, 14th July 2017. The 12 track project which parades bangers like Daddy Yo, Come Closer, Picture Perfect, All for Love and One for Me boasts of collaborations with some of the biggest international names like the 6god Drake, Ty Dolla Sign (who featured on two tracks), Trey Songz, Chris Brown, DJ Mustard and Major Lazer with additional vocals from some of Africa’s finest voices Efya and Bucie. Wizzy was also smart enough not to totally displace the sound team that earned him recognition in the first place- hence he retained the services of Nigerian beat-makers like Sarz, Legendary Beatz, Spellz and Del B in carving that distinct African sound.
