Former DJ of Hot97, Cipha Sound had voiced his opinion on Wizkid’s international presence and according to him and other DJs on the show, no one would’ve known Wizkid if not for his international collaborations with Drake.
This statement was made in a video clip of R.O.A.D podcast hosted by DJCity. where he stated that they’re trying to make Wizkid like the Sean Paul of Afrobeats but he’s not because according to Cipha Sound “He’s not even close to what Sean Paul was doing…”
He went on to state that there is no face of Afrobeat as no one can be used for now… no AFRICAN ARTISTE.
The conversation started thus;
Roctakon: I think if it wasn’t for Drake, people wouldn’t know the Wizkid stuff like… maybe at all”
And Cipha went;
“Nobody knows Wizkid…they try to to make Wizkid be like the Sean Paul of Afrobeats and he’s not even close to what Sean Paul was doing… you knew Sean Paul and that’s what Wizkid was supposed to be but there’s no star of UK scene… we’re music heads and we’re talking to other music heads. Let’s go walk down the street and ask anybody who Wizkid is… there’s no face of Afrobeat, there’s no face yet.
