Video: Wizkid Takes NYC
Wizkid released his Sounds From The Other Side Mixtape and has had the starboy fan base and the world grooving to some good afrobeat music fusion. Emerging as a pop star from Nigeria’s Afrobeats scene, WizKid’s stateside debut is a potent crossover album that blends pop, R&B, dancehall.
Riding some irresistibly slinky grooves, he’s rolling with hip-hop heavyweights like Drake, R&B titans like Ty Dolla $ign, and spreading the word with a handful of impressive records, including ‘Sweet Love,’ ‘Ayo,’ and the new mixtape ‘Sounds From the Other Side.’ We connected with him at a pop-up show in NYC during a recent US visit (he’s touring with Future this summer and fall) and learned about partying in Lagos, the power of Afrobeats rhythms, and his dedication to his fans.
