Oh, you thought Wizkid’s year was a bust? Lol, well I thought so too… guess you didn’t year about WizKid’s album, Ayo, been listed on Rolling Stone‘s website as one of the “15 Great Albums You Didn’t Hear in 2014?.
The piece, written by Brandon Geist, states that
Nigerian rapper Wizkid prepped its follow-up with three years of irresistible features and unstoppable club bangers. Arriving in September, Ayo placed the biggest of the latter alongside new tracks that grab slang from Jamaica and salute women with a “bum bum bigger than Bombay.” Throughout, the 24-year-old uses deft, nimble flows to glide over complex beats and he writes hooks that will keep you humming for weeks.
He called wizzy a rapper tho… it’s good recognition, good international recognition
WizKid’s album was #1 on the iTunes world chart barely 24 hours after it was released.
