Alicia Keys & Husband Swizz Beatz are Definitely Fans of Wizkid – Here’s Why!



Wizkid-Swizz-Beatz-Alicia-Keys-OjuelegbaWizkid is one artist who has amazingly penetrated into the international music industry. From being ‘friends’ with Chris Brown, to featuring Drake and Skepta on his ‘Ojuelegba’ track to music producer and rapper Swizz Beatz calling him one of his fave artists and more.

Thanks to social media, we are all able to see how Wizkid is growing into a huge brand.

The 25-year-old singer has definitely set a pace for other artists to follow – especially now that a Grammy Award-winning couple, Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz, have sorta endorsed his music.

First Swizz Beatz took to Instagram to share the album cover of Wizkid’s 2014 album, Ayo (Joy) and simply captioned it with the hastag #vibes, mentioning the Instagram of Wizkidayo.

Then he posted a 15-sec video of himself listening to ‘Ojuelegba’.

Clearly they are having a Wizkid-filled day at home.

      OK ….but on the flip side, some other people love his music.

      You can’t please the world…………do you

    Alicia Keys and Swizz bumping to #Ojuelegba made me so happy! How can you not be happy for Wizkid. Hard work pays off!! On a lighter note, it’s like that song has JuJu everyone likes it!!

      Actually that’s the thing! Elements of ‘Juju’ and afrobeat music. That’s whats authentic about him, and thats why we’ll be jamming to Wizkid like Shina Peters 50 years from now. The composition is always so amazing, even without the vocals, Ojuelegba and Caro are hits everyday. Just my opinion sha. He’s this generation’s #classickid.

      I’m happy when people are open to different cultures and music not necessarily bcos they are Americans. Swizz, was jamming hard tho. And Alicia is cute. I jam to some Spanish, Congolese, Ghanan music like I understand the language. I like Afrobeats, and I hope artists like wizkid and others can put more effort to making nice music instead of the noise talking about booty, and girls.

    It actually embarrasses me how excited our artists get when American musicians acknowledge their existence or listen to their songs.
    But anyway kudos to him (and his PR team) for putting himself out there

      So embarrassing I tell you…I pride myself in my knowledge of music. I know different music from different cultures and Nigerian music is one that I identify with anywhere in the world, u say it is repetitive ? Then listen to Pop music and come back and complain the more. Americans are now tired of their recycled sounds and now looking out for our African sound, and we are now celebrating it??

      Concerning this particular post, where did you see wizzy show his excitement? just asking you

      And let’s be realistic here, who sets the pace in almost everything? which award shows do most look forward to …grammy….Oscars …all American award shows ……………..? Yea

    • Rolly

      August 5, 2015 at 10:22 pm

      Oh please. It’s in his Instagram and twitter pages. Let’s stop pretending like he doesn’t consider it a big deal.

    Wizzy does no wrong in my eyes since ‘Holla at your boy’. He’ll go places, he just has to stay humble. His contents are potent. Yes, sometimes, he gets it wrong, like that ‘Eleniyan’ song. But hey! i love wiz. Ojuelegba is one of his best and definitely one of the best songs in recent times.

    Nice one! Love the Ojuelegba beats myself. Kudos to wizkid’s producer.
    Now that Wizz Beatz and Alicia have endorsed,let the band wagon effect by the other ‘confused’ naija artists be activated. Let the rush for Ojuelegba beats begins …

      Really!!!! So you also pray to fade away. Why can’t you be happy for someone’s success. This is a hard working guy trying to make it good for himself and you are wishing he fades. Go to Alicia key page and see how people are happy he is Nigerian and African. He was not even following the lady until this. Wish for other what you wish for yourself.????????

      @NaijaPikin How can you spend the better part of your adult life waiting for a hardworking and successful yound man to fail–or as you put it, FADE? Are you also waiting for PSquare, Davido, Tiwa, Flavour, The Don and all others working so hard to put Nigeria and Africa up there to FADE? Na waa o. You go kill yourself for nothing!!!!

    • NaijaPikin

      August 6, 2015 at 6:36 pm

      Borrow yourself some sense.

      The fading was in reference to leaving EME which has been in the news within the past year. I’m a wizzy fan all day everyday. Lets face it, hes the hottest artist on EME, if he leaves the label, his absence will be felt greatly.
