Wizkid surprised us last night with the release of a 7 tracks EP, without promotions, without announcement, he made us an epic “Beyoncé’s way“.
Starboy Entertainment, Wizkid‘s premiers “SoundMan vol 1“, a solid EP with contributions from Chronixx, Blaq Jerzee, London and Kel P.
We let ourselves be easily rocked and carried away by the sound of the trumpets, all the sound of this long musical journey. We are in the presence of a Wizkid who proposes us well-constructed lyrics, knowing that we reproached him for being a little lazy lately with his level of songwriting.
Overall, it is a great move for wizkid following the Northboi issue, where the “Joro” and “Soco” producer had accused Wizkid of threatening him with a weapon in addition to contractual disagreements. He worked this time with different producers by crediting and featuring them. In this case, they will get royalties as producer and featured artist. Interesting PR move.
It is excellent content as usual, but this time beats and lyrics are really blended perfectly, and the result is a big yes. Rather you like wizkid or not, the musical growth can’t be denied.
We can deduce that we will not have the long-awaited album “Made In Lagos” which was announced in 2019, but we can be very optimistic following this body of work because it is already trending everywhere.
MoyoAfrika’s pick is “Blow”, Enjoy the audio below!
