In a funny twist some would understand, Wizkid makes it as our artiste of the month for September. After keeping his fans on the look out for his long-awaited “Ayo” album, we finally managed to cop a listen when it was released or ‘leaked’ on iTunes.
Currently under review by lots of ardent fans and music minds (us included), the album has so far gotten more hard knocks than nods. However, it is crucial to note that the album isn’t totally without redeeming qualities. It contains tracks that were without a doubt hit songs on their release with most still gaining airplay. If this is not enough reason, that he made history when his album raced to the No1 spot on iTunes less than 24 hours of release earlier in the month, should attest to the fact that we can’t help but deny his star quality. Even more, his upcoming collaborations with 2face and Wande Coal has kept him in the prying eyes of various blogospheres and music media channels.
Love him or hate him, he’s still our favourite Starboy and if we were to grade his actions, he’d get an ‘A’ for audaciousness.
