“I’m Not Trying To Live Like Fela” – Wizkid Says

Superstar Wizkid said he is in music to create his own legacy and not to live like past legendary singers like Fela.

Wizkid, explained further that he drew his singing inspiration from Fela and Bob Marley, but he is not trying to live like the duo.

The ‘Ojuelegba’ singer who first caught the attention of international pop sensation like Drake in 2015, with the same track, revealed his aspiration and goals as an artiste in a recent chat with Hunger Magazine.

Discussing his progress as he has featured with top international artistes like Chris Brown, Justin Skye, TY Dolla $ign among others, he said that he is going global not to change his kind of music but to make his original sound global.

“The aim is not really to cross over. I just want to make good music for the world. It’s really not in my mind to cross over to America. I have my own fan base, which is Africa. And I just want to keep feeding that fan base and hope it grows.

When quizzed on how he feels showcasing African music on the world stage, he said:

“I’m not really seeing myself as the one champion of the movement. I’m just contributing my own little part. Keep the movement moving, and take it there, you know?”
