    Nice remix, but I think skepta’s rap verse was more in tune with the theme of ojuelegba than drake’s verse. Did drake get what the song was about in the first place?

      My thoughts exactly on the Drake verse. I do not particularly like the remix.

    Real respect will only come when any of these Nigerian artistes manage to collaborate with an A+ music star. Drake, Akon, Rick Ross, TI are B+ musicians at the very best and are just very meh to say the least.
    When they manage to get the likes of Rihanna, Beyonce, Bruno Mars, Madonna, Eminem, Kanye West (cameos don’t count), Jay-Z and Taylor Swift to record tracks with them, only then will the growing apathy towards the ridiculous Nigerian Music Industry come to a halt.

      Drake is B list in what planet? You must be joking. Anyway, Don Jazzy has produced a track for Jay-Z and Beyoncé.

      You are a dunce. Drake is not a B+ musician. He’s one of the best selling new rappers around and he has a Grammy. There was nothing to put down here so shut up and be happy for the dude. Your negativity is unnerving.

      Drake B+? Lmao. It is drake! Drake is one of the biggest selling artistes in the world. I dnt see anything special in drake jumpin on any Nigerian song actually but lets nt lie drake is A*. If wizkid paid drake to jump on this heheheh Nigerians ya ll re doing it backward. This foreign collaboration is not worth it trust me. We want to get that internatonal recongnition then pls build the music industry here first. Let them recognize afrobeat, ofcourse if u pay the Americans they will do watevr u say and listen to drake talkin abt bitches in a song abt struggle ahan baba didnt even get the memo but its drake. Look at the jamaicans and reggae. Bob marley did not leave jamaica: reggae became recongnized and drake fxcks with reggae u can hear it in his music very well. This wont get us any where, all these meekmill, drake nd co. Just look at meek for example, after the davido music, he dropped an album. The americans forgot abt watevr collaboration he had in nigeria here nd focused on his album just like drake will release singles nd album nd they focus on that, so whats the point of featuring a foreign artiste when the song still limited around Africa, u can use the meekmill money to do promo in America sef, radio plays nd all. I also notice the lowkey competition btw wizkid nd davido with this foreign artistes hehehehe it will shock u pple that while competing, one nigerian artistes here without any int’l collaboration becomes the one recognized. This is nt the first time we re featuring int’l artistes common. Let us get the misic industry to that level, let these Americans respect us nd our music, lets do it without their help nd we re even paying for it. The Americans can never say they helped jamaicans, never! You pple can do it. Afrobeat is the real deal!

      July 12, 2015 at 12:14 pm

      Now, I know you are young and hotmess. Wiz kid without collaboration is good on his own especially with songs like ojulegba. All the artists you mentioned are ok but there’s really nothing special that’s worth any high respect. Rihanna, Beyoncé, Taylor swift, Eminem are the same as many nigerian artists who are just there making songs for the fun of it.

      Drake is gonna ruin that song, somebody let him know his verse don’t match…

      Drake B-list artist? You must have smoked weed. Our artists don’t have to collabo with American artists to get recognition. Besides, they sing about their culture, our artists do theirs. Each to his territory. As for Drake,please that guy is the bomb,not B, sure A, but he didn’t do justice to this song.

    Don’t think this can surpass the Sarkodie refix but Skepta’s verse made sense.

    Real nigerian have you heard of oliver twist by dbanj. Did you think it was your mc galaxy or your shirtless flavour that appeared. It was dbanj and kanye west. U must be high to say drake is b list. Drake is a megastar. You dont have to comment all the time. Eff off.

    Real Nigerian, i think you should cut our Nigerian artistes some slack. I don’t think its that easy for an African artiste to break into the US music industry, heck African American artistes have a difficult time too. For me, the question actually should be who made collaborating with US A- list artistes the indicator for Nigerian/African artistes’ talent? The likes of Fela Kuti were homegrown and then sought after internationally because they strived for excellence. The concern should be for our artistes to seek that excellence, get internationally brilliant at what they do and then the international collaborations would come. But I think we need to deal with the complex we Nigerians have towards the West. It cuts across all socio-economic sectors and is doing us no good. – A Pan-African @ heart.

    Ahahahahahaaa! Drake is an A+ player? Drake? Wait…Drake? This is unbelievable. How is Drake even on the same level with any of those people mentioned? Because you’re a fan doesn’t mean you should be biased.
    Drake is NOT an A+ musician. He is NOT on the same level with Jay-Z, Nas, 50 cent, Kanye West, Diddy or Eminem. Not even close. Drake might be a superstar, yes, but that does not make him A-grade. He’s getting there but he isn’t there yet.
    Look at the EDM genre for example, the likes of Calvin Harris, David Guetta, Tiesto, Skrillex and Avicii are probably the biggest stars in the genre today, the best selling, most popular, you name it. But does that translate to being A+? No. The ONLY EDM artistes worthy of that A+ accolade are Daft Punk.
    To be A+, you need a legacy, you need to be very influential, you need to have that IT factor. Drake doesn’t have that yet, and neither do Kendrick or J. Cole in case you might be wondering.
    You might argue that the A+ artistes I named might be legends who have been in the game for a long time and it would be unfair to pit Drake against them…but hey, look at Adele, Taylor Swift, Rihanna and Britney Spears. Those 3 ladies are already A+ players because they had the “it” factor, they had managed to be massively influential and powerful over a very short time. Drake hasn’t been able to have that power yet in his short time. Someone like Justin Bieber is even closer to being an A+ player than Drake. He will eventually get there, but please don’t say he’s there yet. Urgh.

    • nikky

      July 12, 2015 at 6:55 pm

      Your categorization of theses artists as A+ or non A+ is exactly that. YOUR CATEGORIZATION a.k.a your opinion. You don’t see Drake, J.Cole and Kendrick having the ‘it’ factor but others do.

      Drake has sold over 5 million albums worldwide. His work has earned him a Grammy Award, three Juno Awards, six BET Awards, and set several significant Billboard records. With twelve number-one singles, Drake has more than any other artist on Billboard’s Hot Rap Songs chart. With ten number-one singles, he also has more than any other rapper on Billboard‍ ’​s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, passing Jay-Z in August 2012.[7] He is one of two artists (the other being 50 Cent) that has simultaneously occupied the chart’s top three positions.

      @real nigerian ur head is not correct o…. Nas, 50cent, Diddy In 2015? It’s just like saying Nicki minaj isn’t A grade as compared to maybe Lauryn hill, lil kim or Missy… we can argue good/legendary or who is a better rapper, but not numbers as at 2013-2015. You should give urself a knock for this statement. Hell! Most of the people u mentioned want Drake on their track. Truth is, Drake is even too “A” grade aka “Mainstream” that genuine lovers of rap doubt his rap skills/ability. For ur info most of the genuinely good rappers aren’t the ones that are mainstream or A grade like you put it. The only rappers that have managed being A grade +mainstream yet good and I think legendary are Kendrick Lemar, 2pac and Kanye b4 Kim… Please, go research the numbers of all the artistes you’ve mentioned b4 spewing nonsense. Also look up the definition of popular, good/talented and legends cause I think that is were your issues lie..
      p.s Drake is probably the most sort after male rapper as at now. Which honestly annoys me cause I don’t find his rap deep enough. But even I know he’s A+++ grade if there be a grade like that in existence.

    • Me

      July 13, 2015 at 8:54 am

      Is P.diddy a rapper? P.diddy is a business man and just produces music once in a blue moon to stay relevant! Lmao! Pls Drake is a new school A LIST rapper!! Eminem is too busy snorting coke right now to contest, Drakes mixtape sold more than Jay z’s last album, Nas’s career is dead, matter of fact all the people u r mentioning r old G’s, Pls get out of the 90’s and welcome to the new millenium

    Excellence does not hide! Collaborations does not equal international acclaim,if we have to get to the top with our music we have to get it right. As for me o,all these oversabi collabo is ¨International eye service¨ period.

    lol the fact that A real Nigerian came back and added “50 cents” to that list tells me he/she doesn’t even know what an A list celeb is so make una leave talk.

    As for the remix, i don’t like it. I really don’t understand why African artist insist on adding american artist to their songs tbh. Its been proven over and over that this collaborations don’t do as good as their regular songs. And what with the whole “Congratulations” to wizkid like he won an award?lol All you gotta do is pay your money and if the price is very right,you get a verse on a song from an artist.

    July 12, 2015 at 6:53 pm

    Drake is an A star although his contribution in this remix leaves one scratching ones head in doubt if it all pulled together with the rhythm. But good job Wizzy! You still owned your song.

    July 12, 2015 at 8:50 pm

    Drake doesn’t charge anything less than $150000 for a verse. As far as this song is concerned , I don’t think it’s money well spent.

      July 13, 2015 at 8:47 am

      He and Skepta hopped on it for free tho. Skepta liked the original so much he played it for Drake. WizKid didn’t pursue them for a remix…

    idomagirl already cleared this collabo issue up na. Wizkid didn’t pay balls for it. Drake just jumped on it after Skepta played the original, then released it on the OVO radio show. And lool y’all should free “A Real Nigerian” he/she/it is entitled to her opinion. I’m hungry. K byee.

    Sorry to say…. am nt impressed with some of the Nigerians sending negative comments.I was thinking that your heads should be held high because your artists are doing all they to put Nigeria on the international scene.But some are not appreciating their effort.Am a sierra.leonean and i would love our artists to take the step the Nigerian artists has taken.we really admire them and i wish our artists to be like them.I was xpecting you to cheer them,proud of them and show them love. Not to discourage their effort or pull them down..
