‘He killed his verse’ – US rapper, Swae Lee reveals Wizkid featured on ‘Unforgettable’ remix
American rap star, Khalif Malik Ibn Shaman Brown, popularly known as Swae Lee has opened up on a collaboration with Nigerian Afrobeats star, Wizkid.
He revealed that Wizkid is on the remix of French Montana’s hit song, Unforgettable which is yet to be released.
The original version of the track with just Swae and French dropped in 2017 and the music video was shot in Uganda.
The former member of Rae Sremmurd affirmed that the remix with Big Wiz is impressive because he delivered his verse excellently.
Speaking in an interview, Swae Lee said it’s one of the biggest song, but they could not put it the way he wanted so it was left inconclusively.

Meanwhile, On Air-Personality, Daddy Freeze has said music superstar, Wizkid is almost on the same level with late Afrobeats legend, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti.
The media personality stated this in a video shared on his social media page while wading into the feud between Wiz and rappers in the industry.
It may be recalled that during an interview with 10 magazine the “Essence” crooner said rap is dead while arguing in favour of Afrobeats dominating the Hip Hop genre.
According to the Starboy Entertainment founder, the Hip Hop artistes mostly rap on the same beats, and they have similar styles.
Wiz also said Nigerian rappers as non-rappers who lack development and went on to list the South Africa’s Nasty C and Ghana’s Sarkodie as the ‘real rappers’ in Africa.
Subsequently, Wizkid received backlash mostly from Nigerian rap artistes who either responded to him online or released diss raps.
In reaction to the clash, 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 aid he is 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.”
