Nigerian singer Ayodeji Balogun aka Wizkid cannot seem to stop talking about his Blessed song off the Made in Lagos (MIL) album months after its release.
The song which features Damian Marley is no doubt one of Wizkid’s best track off the project and he once again made this disclosure during a link-up chat powered by Rollingstone.
The music superstars got the rare opportunity to have a long chat several months after they first crossed paths at a New York City hotel, where Damian was promoting his album, Stony Hill.

"One night after one of the concerts, we all went to the studio, got together, and Wiz played a bunch of beats for me. That was the one that grabbed my attention the most. We started writing the song in the studio, together, just feeling the vibe."
Damian also disclosed how he couldn’t record much that night apart from an opening line which Wizkid fell in love with.
"From the first time I heard it in the studio, I just went mad. I couldn’t believe it. It was like magic right before my eyes. If I’m being very honest with you, that was one of the most amazing sessions I’ve ever been in, for real."
On how they both got into the business of making music, Wizkid recounted how he was inspired by his mum’s family members who were all involved with the choir in church.
Damian, on the other hand, noted that music has always been a part of his family which was what gave him early access.
