Someone remind me of just one single banger that Wizkid released this year, cause I’m trying so hard to remember one without any success.
Award to him imho is not deserved. African inferiority complex at its peak. So just because he did some minor gig with Chris Brown and Drake, he is now the best musician on the planet, even when both collabo songs are craps.
