I’m Not The Best In Afrobeats – Nigerian Singer, Wizkid

Wizkid, the Grammy-winning Nigerian artiste, says he’s not really the best Afrobeats singer there is.

The Nigerian music star spoke of his career while engaging fans in a couple of Twitter posts on Friday.

Wizkid added that he has only been able to make some really good music.

The 31-year-old’s declaration comes on the back of his recent successes as an entertainer.

Last October, Wizkid released ‘Made In Lagos’ (MIL), his fourth album that met critical acclaim globally.

It had big names in the music business like Damian Marley, Skepta, H.E.R, Ella Mai, Burna Boy, Tems, and Terri.

In 2021, Wizkid released a video to ‘Essence’, one of its tracks, and followed it up with a Justin Bieber remix.

This made ‘Essence’ the first Nigerian song to crack the Billboard Hot 100 chart as well as the third in Africa.

It shot up the highly-coveted US music chart, peaking at 16 as the sales for the remix and original version merged.

In the wake of his feats, Wizkid would release an 18-track deluxe version of MIL, serially selling out big concerts.

In mid-2019, Wizkid had featured on Beyoncé’s ‘Brown Skin Girl’, a track off ‘The Lion King: The Gift’ soundtrack.

This had earned him accolades at major international awards, seeing fans celebrate the singer on social media.

It got him two Soul Train Music Awards, an NAACP Image Award, a BET award, and his very first Grammy win.
