Is Wizkid the new Fela? International celebrities can't get enough of his Afrobeat hit Ojuelegba (Watch videos of Kylie, Alicia Keys & More)


Wizkid ‘s Ojuelegba hit single has continued to build momentum especially in recent months. “Ojuelegba” is the 5th track off Wizkid ‘s “Ayo” album and was inspired by his experiences and sojourn in and around this part of Lagos, Nigeria (Ojuelegba). It was directed by Clarence Peters and produced by Legendury Beatz.

We remember watching him perform at the London 02Arena in February when the audience started chanting for him to perform this particular song and he was practically shocked that they had even heard it.

Dude was really overwhelmed by how much the fans knew the lyrics of Ojuelegba that he choked with emotions half way through the performance. Now with Drake and Skepta remixing the track after Sakordie already did, A-List celebs uploading videos on social media while dance to this song, and over three million views on Youtube, the young starboy must be very humbled.

Not that he hasn’t been working his head off to get such attention, Wizkid has- he’s been traveling and meeting producers all around the world while still working his voice off on stage at various concerts and practically sleeping in the studio.

He was recently named among 15 Young African Creatives Rebranding Africa by Forbes.

Here are some videos of his new fans dancing to Ojuelegba.
