She recently revealed that the starboy himself is the best Afrobeat singer we have right now.
According to her, Wizkid is a better Afrobeat/Afropop artist than any other African artist would ever be, and it is best for Nigerians to accept this fact.
She added that Ayo Balogun should not be compared to anyone because he currently surpasses everyone else.
