THE B-SIDE
Wizkid (RCA)
5/10/17

WHAT IT IS: The Nigerian-born, globally adored superstar moves easily throughout Africa and the world, between his native Afro-Beat and hip hop, Fela and Drake. Wizkid’s musical range speaks to a vision of 21st century youth culture where “all the music of the world is coming together.” Although Afro-beat’s undulating rhythms can be heard throughout his music, Wizkid is reluctant to define his musical style. “It’s hard for me to describe what I do,” he says, “since I work with rhythms from Afro-beat, reggae, hip-hop, dancehall and other genres. What’s important to me is for music to be real, authentic, raw and timeless.”
