I don’t have to wear Ankara to show that I’m African – Wizkid on his fashion style

Published

on

Ayodeji Balogun, Wizkid as he is popularly known, is famous mostly for his music which has crossed boarders and certified him a global music star, not just ‘a Nigerian/an African’ artiste. One thing Wizkid is easily recognised by is his ever glowing fashion style, looking dapper in every shot. Speaking with Complex, he says he defines his fashion on what makes him feel comfortable and fly, not based on the perceived notion that as an artiste from Africa, he has to represent by publicly wearing the Ankara clothing whenever he wants to make a fashion statement.

The interviewer asked “I feel like for you to be an Afrobeat artite but then you are also global. . .it’s not like you’re wearing Ankara prints, you’re not loudly African but your accent is African. Is that intentional?” Wizkid explains his view on fashion choice and clothing thereafter, he replies “Yeah of course man, I’m African in my heart, so I’m African enough. I don’t have to put together an ‘Afro’ Ankara or whatever to show you that I’m African. It’s in my blood. That’s intentional.”

Wizkid also revealed that his presence and participation at the 2018 Milan Fashion Week was not his initial choice as he was “forced” to do it by fashion icon and model, Naomi Campbell; Wizkid would eventually agree to do it, walking down the Dolce & Gabbana Runway with “big sis” Naomi Campbell. He further explains that fashion shows are not his thing, even though he likes to look fly.

Nigerian jollof vs Ghanaian jollof: Ed Sheeran chooses his favourite

Published

on

England-born music maestro, Ed Sheeran, was one of the nobles at The Earth Shot Prize award show which held at London over the weekend but one thing seems to be catching Nigerians interest. That is a video posted by Yemi Alade on her Instagram page wherein the “Shape of You” singer said which he preferred in the unending debate between Nigerian jollof and Ghanian jollof rice.

Both meals although are made from the same source product—rice—contain varying ingredients which gives it its distinctive aroma, taste and flavour, resulting in years of unending debate (both online and offline) on which is the superior one. Of course, you would expect the Nigerians to favour theirs and vice-versa. On this topic, Ed Sheeran looked captivated when chatting with the self-acclaimed Mama Africa, Yemi Alade. He spoke of when he visited Ghana and had to taste their very much prestige jollof, also on how much he noticed people arguing over which geographical zone jollof rice was better.

“So when we were in Ghana . . . we were living with a bunch of Nigerian as well . . . I saw a lot of arguments on which jollof was better” Ed Sheeran says, intriguing Yemi Alade’s interest in the discussion. “I think I prefer Ghanaian jollof”, he coninues much to the displeasure of Yemi as shown by her stomping her foot on the ground, sighingly she utters the word “No” in a stressed manner. Ed Sheeran in a bid to cool the tension eventually revealed his preference is that way only because he has not visited Nigeria before.

Dekbaby shares first EP, “Next One”, on Audiomack

Published

on

Dekbaby releases his first body of work after putting out two singles, one last year (“Ibadi”) and another (“Abeg”), May 28th this year. He titles his first project—Next One. An EP comprising of 6 tracks including his debut single, “Ibadi”, which seats on the sixth position, tracklist wise. Next One mostly includes songs in which Dekbaby shares his affinity for the feminine gender but at strategic points on his debut EP, he makes sure to show his retrospective side, singing about the hustle and the dream to amass a lot of money on the first track (“Easy”) and fourth song (“Ghetto Boyz”).

While Dekbaby might have kept songwriting at a reasonable minimum, choosing not to do too much, rather using repetition to emphasise his points on the songs, he did put a lot of thoughts into writing and visualising his pain on the retrospective tracks stated above; the other songs, although are mainly about his love for women—their bodies and other attributes, contain danceable beats which would have listeners bumping their heads at the barest minimum. Heywhykeyz is the solely featured artiste on Next One, he appears on “Ghetto Boyz”.

You would do well by listening to Dekbaby’s debut project, the EP—Next One—on Audiomack.
