“Wizkid is wizkid not Fella, Fella is not back, Wizkid is there. 2 goats ❤️.”
“All these peoples basing this argument on Fela being a legend, no one is arguing that with y’all. But being a legend doesn’t mean people won’t out do you. Pele and Maradona are football legends, but rn Messi is the goat…Hubert Ogunde is one of the movie industry pioneer in Nigeria, he is a legend and peoples have outdone him, RMD is doing really great. Tupac, Snopp, 50 cent are hiphop legends…dem Jayz, kanye are outdoing them rn. MJ is a legend but people will out do him. Wizkid is doing really great rn and he is goated than Fela.”
“Who be Fela? wizkid is a top artist waiting he dy sing and fela no be the same thing type of music he dy sing fela no go fit sing am❤️.”
“Everyone fighting to be Fela.”
“Wizkid take over the movement from the great Fela. ☠️.”
Wizkid is a brand
Wizkid’s Made In Lagos concert that was recently held at the O2 Arena in London has no doubt made a great number of people happy.
Many internet users have continued to gush over their experience at the concert and a UK-based businessman, Toba Abiodun, was one of those who made cool bucks from the event.
Taking to his Snapchat page, Toba flaunted a bag filled with bundles of pound notes and explained that he made close to 100 grand (N55 million), from reselling Wizkid’s tickets.
He had nothing but praises for Wizkid who he described as a brand.
