Wizkid is currently in the UK promoting his newly released Drake assisted single “Come Closer”. While on his London promo run he appeared on Channel 4 news to talk about about using the rise of Afrobeats (how i detest the use of that term to generalize all music that comes out of Nigeria) to change global perceptions of Africa.

Wizkid doesn’t grant a lot of interviews…so it was very refreshing to see the music star speak so eloquently & insightfully about his ambitions to put Nigerian music on the world stage….he also spoke with a British accent…

His newly acquired accent did not go unnoticed by his fans & seeing as Nigerians have an opinion on everything, they took to social media to discuss Wizzy’s new British accent…LOL…

Watch a clip from the interview below & See some of the comments about his accent after




Gosh Nigerians will always find something to criticize…hahaha
