Wizkid and David Adeleke, better known by his stage name Davido, have claimed to be the first young Nigerian musicians to achieve international success.
He expressed his excitement over the “new cats” (stars) that are currently ruling the music industry, including Burna Boy, Rema, Fireboy, Mayorkun, and Asake.
This was said by the singer of the 30 Billion Gang song in an interview that Thursday went viral on social media.
“It feels good seeing new cats like Burna Boy, Rema, Fireboy, Mayorkun, you know a lot of new cats coming, killing it,” he remarked. “Wizkid and I were the first young artists to blow up.”Who was on my album was Asake.
“So, yes, I do believe that Afrobeat’s future is in good hands.”
His comments have stirred debate on social media in the meanwhile, with many Burna Boy fans criticizing him for lumping the Grammy Award-winning musician in with amateurs.
