…Wizkid says to fan on Twitter handle that his aim is not to make music like Fela
Following the various comments on rape and other vices that are ongoing in the country, Nigerians call on various Nigerian celebrities to lend their voices to the masses in order for some peace and order to be restored.
A particular fan of the popular Nigerian hip hop star, Wizkid called out to him to release a song that shall highlight the social issues bedeviling the country just like the Afrobeat legend Fela Anikulapokuti did. To this, the music star replied that his songs could not possibly solve the problems the country is facing.
He even went on to say that Fela during his lifetime composed various songs which highlighted the problems that the country faced at that time, and nothing was done. As a matter of fact, the problems only persisted.
“Fela made songs before I was born about the issues of bad leadership and governance and even to this present administration!!! My brother, nothing has changed. We have got to do more,” Wizkid wrote on Twitter.
The pop star is of the opinion that other things ought to be done for results to be achieved. See tweet below:
Nigerians might think that this tweet by Wizkid is a shot at the late Fela, but in fact he has only made a real point as to real situatuons.
When he was also asked about when he would release his ‘Made in Lagos,’ he replied saying he does not know.
It seems Wizkid is ready to take things at his own pace.
