Wizkid, the world-famous Nigerian superstar singer, has said that he doesn’t listen to rap music.
He described the genre as “dead” and “boring”.
In a recent interview, the Afrobeats singer spoke about the place of other genres and his thoughts about them.
Wizkid also hammered on the “dominance of Afrobeats over the rest of the music market.”
“Afrobeats is the new pop. I sold two million copies in America off of one song! Even some American artists don’t have a diamond record. If I’m being honest, I don’t listen to any other genre of music anymore,” he said.
“I don’t listen to rap – that shit is boring to me. It’s dead now, it’s tired. These guys do the same shit, rap on the same beats and the same flows.
“No disrespect to nobody. I don’t have anything against rap or any other type of music. I have a lot of rappers as friends, like a lot. So I’m probably the wrong person to say this.”
Wizkid has had five albums, including ‘Superstar’ (2011), ‘Ayo’ (2014), and ‘Sounds From The Other Side’ (2017).
‘More Love, Less Ego’ is the fifth studio album from the Afrobeats star and was released on November 11.
It is the follow-up to his 2020 full-length project ‘Made in Lagos’ and includes the hit single ‘Bad to Me’.
