“I make all sorts of music; don’t be ignorant and stupid all the time” – Wizkid fires back at critics

Famous Nigerian singer and songwriter, Wizkid has fired back at critics who slammed him for claiming he is not an afrobeat artist.

You may recall that the renowned singer came under fire after he objected to being called an afrobeat artist. He declared that his album was coming out and advised fans of afrobeat music not to listen to it.


Wizkid recently posted a message to his trolls telling them to stop being uneducated and foolish all the time and to Google and do some research, or even better, go explore the world.

He took his time to justify his remarks, claiming that despite being African, he creates a wide range of excellent music and will not only be categorized as an afrobeat musician.

His words: “U lost people always want someone to educate you. U got your phone Google research shit or take a flight and see the world don’t be ignorant and stupid all the time. Listen, am I African ? Yes! But I do make all sorts of music. Fine music! But I don’t want these labeled just afrobeats. That’s like saying every American artiste makes rap. That’s stupid. This is why no matter how good or amazing the music we make be it RnB or whatever other genre, we all get nominated in one Africa category or the other. I’ve made songs from different genres of music. Made in Lagos is not an ” “Afrobeats album. Thats a fusion of different sounds. Real music! The word afrobeats was made up by y’all to put all we make into one box. Fela created afrobeat!! I make All sorts of music. Fusion of sounds! “I’m a artiste” before anything else.. True to my art. Not scared to try shit. Now y’all drink some milk!”
