Wizkid emerges as first Nigerian artist to appear on Billboard charts

While Nigerians are busy criticizing Wizkid’s featuring in Drake’s One dance as barely noticeable, light continue to shine on the Nigerian pop singer’s international presence.

Wizkid has become the first Nigerian artist to emerge on Billboard’s Twitter Last 24 hours chart courtesy of his feature in Drake’s One dance song. Drake on Tuesday, April 5 dropped two singles, Pop style featuring Kanye West and Jay Z, and One dance featuring Wizkid and Kyla. 

Nigerians on Twitter had call out the Ojuelegba singer for what they perceive as a very minimal appearance in the One Dance with some even comparing this with Dbanj’s trivial contribution in Kanye West’s Mercy video in 2012.

Wizkid the Baba Nla Won had featured Drake in a remix to his Ojuelegba single in July 2015 and that got a wild accolade. That of course was the beginning of a relationship with the American pop singer and also led to his being featured on Drake’s One Dance which is a single from Drake’s forthcoming album. 

Drake’s full album titled Views From The 6 is billed to drop in April 2016. 

Wizkid had met Drake through a friend of his Skepta who introduced Ojuelegba to Drake during a Wireless Music Festival held in London in 2015.
