      You want him to speak Yoruba ? borrow sense. That’s a clear accent if you think that is a British accent then you really need to get out more. Bush meat!

    Wizkid now has a british accent. After living in NIgeria for 27 years and visiting america for a few months.
    If the accent was American, it would have been easier to mean to reason out the drastic change.
    Wassup with the like like like like…. kilode?

    “Like” is used as a linguistic filler and IMO sounds better than saying um and ah. He used like frequently to plug gaps/to pause and think/to make the conversation run smoothly. Go on Wizkid! The interviewer would have enjoyed the way he spoke. They like people who speak smoothly.

      Ur absolutely pathetic, a bunch of wanna be’s! Did no one actual pay attention to the meaning of the words coming out his mouth! All u culd focus on, was his lips moving ??!

      ……. I was trying to find the link between this interview and the absolute ‘tasteles’ music his being producing l8ly ?! Is their an explanation 4 dat ?! Or is just ‘like’ ‘like’ ‘like’ ….Like throwing ur carreer into the trash can! with this assimilated shit!

    Oh Us! Reading comments might distort the meaning of the message. Wizkid is keen about marketing Africa in his music. He mentioned that all he wants to do is to do his part, and then when done the ‘younger generations’ too can their parts too. That this is not about who is who it’s about selling Africa to the world. And the Afro beat, his fashion style, musical videos and other sorts are centered on that theme. This might be one of the reason, in his recent single release; melanin beautiful ladies were showed. He also described women to be really really special.

    @sankawale aka pathetic little troll who just loves to exist in the after shadow of real people’s comments. Star boys got 4.1m views and counting on his video ,what you got?. What kinda music you listen to? Mozart ? Debussy??. Okay mr Fake ass elitist why you hanging out here, oh yeah that’s cause you is a TROLL who loves to ………..( You know the rest)He sings Afro pop look up the meaning asswipe .Amazing interview, it flowed making sense. In less than 15 mins he gave a picture of family life, Muslims/Christians living peacefully together, his hopes for music, the reason for his themes, his African Pride, his principles as an artist .He basically has done more for Africa in 15 mins than you’d probably do in a lifetime. You’ve spent more than 15mins proving you are a troll. Now go look in the mirror that’s pathetic gazing at you.
