Meanwhile, in another news…

CorrectNG recalls that On-Air-Personality, Daddy Freeze had said that Wizkid is almost on the same level with late Afrobeats legend, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti.

The influencer stated this while speaking on the controversy surrounding an interview with 10 magazine, where the “Essence” crooner said rap is dead.

Subsequently, Wizkid received backlash mostly from Nigerian rap artistes who either responded to him online or released diss raps.

In reaction, Freeze opined that for Wizkid to have made that comment, it comes from a place of objectivity soaked in experience. He said the Ojuelegba crooner has achieved a lot and should be taken seriously whenever he gives constructive criticisms.

The OAP who said he was backing Big Wiz further said only a handful of artistes in Nigeria can boast of the achievements attached to Wizkid’s name in the music industry.

Daddy Freeze said; “When it comes to music in Nigeria as a whole, Wizkid is almost on the level of Fela then. What he (Wizkid) has been able to do, not many people can achieve it, when he says something, hear him out, there is one thing in me that makes me different from many people I might not like you but if you speak the truth I will support you…

The truth is the truth and it will set you free. When you see the truth and started ignoring the truth because of the person carrying the truth we become like Nigerian politicians, all of them are the same but they will make one look worse than the rest of them.”
