Singer Harrysong has defended Wizkid by slamming the American DJs who claimed that Wizkid is popular because of Drake, during a recent episode of their ‘Road Podcast’.
Recall that the American DJs namely; DJ Crooked, DJ Neva, DJ Dmiles and DJ Jaime Da Great stated that the Nigerian superstar Wizkid is trying to be the Sean Paul of Afrobeats.
They also alleged that Wizkid has never reached the levels Sean Paul did.
The DJs added that Wizkid is not a mainstream artiste because apart from music heads nobody in the streets of America knows who Wizkid really is.
Singer Harrysong has taken to social media to respond to the claims of the American DJs. He stated that their fathers and Presidents knew Fela even before the Nigerian superstar and still show him the needed respect.
He further added that Nigerians stars do not need Sean Paul or Drake to be known as the stars they are.
In a lengthy post on his Instagram page, he wrote:
“First of all….. I don’t know who the fuck this oyinbo albaino is, saying there’s no star of afro beats;your fathers and your presidents know the great fela Anikulakpo kuti , and still respect him till date, wizkid, Davido ,burna boy, 2face idibia,and many more Don’t need Sean Paul or drake to be known as star as they are…. you Americans should respect our sound and culture(AFRICA)
