Wizkid is one of the artists in Africa that are at the forefront of pushing the Afrobeat sounds.
Even years after the passing of the legendary Fela Kuti, who was a pioneer for this type of sound since the 60s. In the latest interview with Hunger TV, Wizkid talked about his sound, the growth of his music , upcoming EP project

Here are the discussions we enjoyed:

On His sound and fanbase

“The aim is not really to cross over,” Wizkid says, shrugging off the burden of such lofty expectations. “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.”

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

 

On Fela Kuti as inpiration

“Every artist has that one person that inspired them, or a group of artists that inspired them,” he says. “Fela happens to be a very big inspiration to my music, Bob Marley as well. So I’m just here spreading good vibes. I’m not trying to live like Fela or do what he has done. I just appreciate everything he did when he was alive and I am here to create my own legacy.”
