There has been several social media controversies over the reach of Afrobeats and popularity of Wizkid in America.
Certain music heads in America claimed on a podcast that Wizkid only got known in America after working with Drake and besides that he isn’t popular there. This was said on the ROAD Podcast by an American DJ Ciphasounds.
The statement which was seen as a disrespect to Wizkid and fans of the music star decided to troll Cisphasounds on Instagram. Following the outrage on him, he decided to explain his opinion on Wizkid and Afrobeats music in America.
According to him he has been a fan of Wizkid from 2012 after Tim Westwood introduced his music to him. He also claimed to have supported the singer since then by playing his songs on American radio.
After setting the records straight the disc jockey urged Wizkid’s fans to apologize for speaking out of ignorance.
