Nigerian music mega star, Wizkid in a ‘quick fire’ question round with JD, answered some questions pertaining to his music career and personal life and he did make sure to make it spicy.

When asked on whether an album would drop anytime soon, Wizkid teased by answering, “Next album dropping soon (laughs). When I’m done recording it.” He also shared how “eventful” 2020 was for him and the inspiration behind his fashion style, also adding it was fun growing up with 12 sisters.

“Who is your dream collab?”, the question asked, to which Wizkid responded, “My dream collab would have been with Bob Marley and Fela but they are not here now, so yeah, I would have loved to make records with them.”

Although, sadly, Reggae icon Bob Marley and Afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti are dead, Wizkid might have fulfilled the fantasy of his dream collab through their heirs in Damian Marley (“Blessed”) and Femi Kuti (“Jaiye Jaiye”).

Twitter NG i.e users of Twitter in Nigeria, as it is the yearly custom are trending “Happy 420” as the number one topic in the country. While many really used the medium to share their unwavering love for weed, others have taken it upon themselves to make funny tweets, memes, skits and share several videos in relation to weed smoking and “Happy 420” as an entity.

While some tweeps take jab at those who don’t smoke weed but indulge in the “woke” culture by wishing stoners a “Happy 420”, others in their own way intentionally misinterpret certain scriptural verses for comedic purpose in order to aid and bait their smoking habits, still others take it upon themselves to disperse various memes which for sure will bring a smile upon your face. That’s not all, though, for we have some tweeps who did brainstorm to form some of the best puns concerning weed and stoners jokes ever. Well we can say irrespective of the way they passed their message regarding “Happy 420”, they all ended on a high note. Enjoy!
