BellaNaija - Starboy Ting! Wizkid gets featured on Hunger Magazine | See Photos

Pop superstar Ayodeji Balogun popularly known as Wizkid granted an interview in the latest issue of US based Hunger Magazine.

The Starboy Records boss & Sony Music/RCA act in his interview explained that inasmuch as his aim is to make music for the world, he is however very much satisfied with his current African fanbase.

The afrobeats star also insisted that he is not trying to live like the legendary Fela Anikulapo-Kuti although he idolizes him.

Read excerpts from the interview below:

On being labeled the face of Afrobeats: I’m not really seeing myself as the one champion of the movement. I’m just contributing my own little part. Keep the movement moving, and take it there, you know? I’d say we make afro-pop. I don’t just make afrobeats… I make music. I draw inspiration from all over. From dancehall reggae, afrobeat, American music as well. Whatever I listen to, I draw inspiration from.

On the lofty expectations from his music on the international scene: The aim is not really to cross over. I just want to make good music for the world. It’s really not in my mind to cross over to America. I have my own fan base, which is Africa. And I just want to keep feeding that fan base and hope it grows.

On the similarities between himself and the legendary Fela Anikulapo-Kuti: Every artist has that one person that inspired them, or a group of artists that inspired them. Fela happens to be a very big inspiration to my music, Bob Marley as well. So I’m just here spreading good vibes. I’m not trying to live like Fela or do what he has done. I just appreciate everything he did when he was alive and I am here to create my own legacy.

    This hairstyle/color does not suit him at all. It makes him look funny and dry(maybe too much weed).

    BABY BOY FOR LIFE, NIGERIAN PHARELL LOL….and these guys work so hard always travelling and touring, the life may be glamorous but it takes hard work, never really sleeping through all these most of them loose weight. The bigger you are, the more work you put in to stay there, you literally work harder and get more bookinhs

    this guy is amazing, the other day I was watching a recent interview I was really delighted the way he marshalled his points. At times those people in the West might think we in African are not well informed about events. Starboy was able to tell them that a lot of people use the internet and are well abreast of events worldwide.
