Meanwhile, in another news…
Popular social media critic, Daniel Regha has asserted that Nigerian superstar artiste, Ayodeji Ibrahim aka Wizkid has a dying music career.
He says Wizkid failed to release a new hit song since he dropped Ojuelegba in 2014 and the fact that some of his songs won awards does not qualify them to be labelled ‘hits’.
The Twitter Influencer, in a post on the microblogging site, added that Starboy’s latest album, More Love Less Ego was an incredible disappointment.
According to Daniel Regha, who often criticises celebrities, there is a need for Wizkid to urgently improve on his songwriting skills.
He wrote; “Wizkid has not dropped a single hit song since Ojuelegba was released; Sure he’s worked on many music projects, but a song winning awards or being popular don’t mean its a hit. His last album MLLE was incredibly d!sappointing. Hope he improves his songwriting skills. No shades.”
His comment and recommendation stirred controversy online, especially from Wizkid FC that said his opinion has no argumentative basis.
