I’m not an Afrobeats artiste – Wizkid

Ayodeji Balogun, the singer professionally known as Wizkid, has clarified that he is not an Afrobeats artiste, and wants the public to not categorise him as such.

The singer stated this on Friday, 15th of March while announcing that his next album was complete and ready to be released.

Wizkid warned fans not to expect an old version or Afrobeats sound on the album which will be titled Morayo, after his late mother.

In what seemed like a rant, he urged fans who are looking forward to hearing the old Wizkid, to not bother downloading his new project and delete him from their playlist.

Furthermore, the ‘Fever’ crooner warned bloggers and other media outfits not to post his album or report details about it when he finally releases Morayo.

He wrote; “Album done! See you soon b*tches! And abeg if you like Pakurumo Wizkid, don’t download this new album. In fact, delete me from your playlist and your life!

“If you like Afrobeats, don’t download my album. I’m not a f*cking Afrobeats artiste. I am not Afro anything.”
