How Wizkid upgraded the Nigerian music industry – Fuji star, Remi Aluko

Renowned Fuji singer, Remi Aluko has claimed that Afrobeats superstar, Wizkid brought improvements and a new style to the Nigerian music industry.

He explained that the 33-year-old Grammy winning musician changed the industry in terms of the music economy and boosted replay value.

Aluko, who spoke during a chat on Echo Room, said before Wizkid ventured into the music industry, Nigerian songs were usually lengthy but he changed that by putting out shorter songs.

The fuji star said other artistes followed suit when they saw that Wizkid’s recording method bloated song replay value.

Aluko said; “Wizkid did something in the Nigerian music industry. And I picked up from there. Back then, a song used to last for five or four minutes. But go and check now, Wizkid is the one that changed the method of music that you don’t need to waste music.

“He changed the method of recording in Nigeria. He will bring chorus and after that he will just give you like 16 bars and after that he will go back to the chorus. If you love the music, you play it again.”
