Is Wizkid’s Presence On Beyonce’s Album, “The Lion King: The Gift,” An Indication That He’s Bigger Than Davido On The International Scene?

Taiwo Oluwafemi | - Leave A Comment

The newly released Beyonce album; “Lion King, The Gift Album” just got released and it is causing already insane reactions here in Africa, Nigeria especially.

The reason for this reactions is pretty simple, and it is because some of the biggest African music superstars have been featured on the album, especially the Nigerian ones.

Wizkid, Burna Boy, Tekno, Yemi Alade, Tiwa Savage and Mr Eazi are the Nigerian music ambassadors who are on the album. And with their appearances being applauded and adored by Nigerian music fans, it hasn’t still being able to escape disappointment, argument and ridicule as one Nigerian music big name is missing from the list.

In a situation whereby the biggest music artistes in Nigeria are getting picked for a hugely important music project, it is expected that if only two artistes are going to be picked, it has to be Davido and Wizkid because evidently they are the greatest music exports in the history of Nigerian music.

But to everyone’s greatest surprise, 6 Nigerian music artistes in Nigeria were picked to be featured on Beyonce’s album and of all the 6 that were picked, Davido was not among.

Wizkid was picked however and this has resurrected yet again the argument that focuses on who is more internationally recognised between the two artistes.

Everyone knows Davido has been having a great run in the United States since the beginning of the year as his 2017 hit single, “Fall” gets played on radio everytime in almost every city across the country. This development actually made almost every objective music fan come to the conclusion that Davido is a bigger artiste than Wizkid outside the continent.

However, with the omission of the DMW boss on Beyonce’s album and coupled with the majestic wave Wizkid is having as a result of his brilliant effort on the project where he had a duet with Queen Bey on “Brown Skin Girl,” lots of people in the industry have made a U-turn and have actually come to a conclusion that Wizkid is the biggest Nigerian artiste on the international scene while Davido is only second to him.

We as a corporate observer are actually stuck in this dilemma as we are having a difficult time choosing which the most influential artiste on the international scene is in bewteen the two artistes and that is why we are pushing the question below to your direction so you could give a verdict.

Do you think Wizkid’s presence on Beyonce’s album is a clear indication that he is bigger than Davido on the international scene?

    Wizkid not the only won in the album, but wizkid alone had a duet with beyonce, the rest sang alone, with no voice of beyonce on it. I think beyonce just crown wizkid number one in Africa again as Drake did..

    WizKid is better

    mind u wizkid is not d only one In d album. it takes more than being featured in a Beyonce album. davido has also bin featured on som top international artists albums like quavo, a boogie and clean bandit so far . d Koko is ur singles. if and fall alone has taken davido to almost all part of d world, and by Dat has rubber stamped his position has Africa’s biggest music export and also most known. wat Wizkid Stil nids to level up with davido is a successful international single. I don’t think davido is even regarded as an African artiste anymore , he’s more like an American artiste Now

    I don’t comment normally but I must say your articles are trash. Stick to posting download links and stop with the poorly composed click bait article. This is not how to start this kind of conversation.

    “We as a corporate observer are actually stuck in this dilemma as we are having a difficult time choosing which the most influential artiste on the international scene”

    I chuckled when I read this part. Dilemma my ass. Fuck off.

    Dear reader, we are sorry this made you a lot furious. But how do you think this should have been composed ? And do you think calling people’s efforts “trash” is a constructive way to criticize? Is it healthy to critcize something you’re totally ‘ignorant’ of how, why and the purpose for which it was formulated? That part of the write-up you quoted – what exactly made you “chuckle?” And how please do you think “this kind of coversation” should be started? And we hope you know this isn’t an editorial? And most importantly, we hope you know this is BUSINESS?!

    He wasn’t included because he can’t sing

    I can’t really get it,I don’t doubt the fact dat davido is good but to be compared with Wizkid both local ad international .I think it not a good idea because Wizkid is a legend while davido is just a famous artist.

    I know this gonna spring up serious argument..
    Beyonce did a very great work with the album and for me, Beyonce did not do any screening before he choose the African artists on that track, as matter of fact, there are tendencies that his management did the selection for her.
    Please, we should not capitalize on this or make it standard for us, BEYONCE maybe the Queen of the music industry all over the globe but she’s still human not some kind of god.
    We know our Nigeria artists better than anyone, and come to think of it, if we are to consider BEYONCE style of music, we will be talking of artists such as the BANKY W, JONNY DRILE, TIMI DAKOLO, SIMI, TENI, ASA even 2BABA not excluded.
    Do you wanna tell me that SHATTA WALE is the best artist in Ghana..
    In conclusion, DAVIDO is a great artist, recognized not just in Africa but also in different parts of the globe, not been on this list, doesn’t reduce HIM.

    Ode so yemi alada , shattawale, tekno , burna boy Mr Eazy all of them big pass Davido because they are also in the album. U guys like to compare people stupidly if u don’t have any important thing to post then forget it because it shit bringing down ur rep tooxclusive

    Whoever advised you guys to add articles such as this doesn’t mean well for you. These write ups aren’t even well thought out. Comparisons should be based on facts and figures and not on your view that an artiste is bigger because He was featured in an album which the other wasn’t featured on. Does this mean Mr Eazi is bigger than Davido? Does it mean Tecno is bigger? I get that you want more clicks and this type of articles may help you get them but what happens when people open an article like this expecting to read a well written piece but they end up thinking that the article would have been better if placed in a magazine meant for 10 year olds?

  27. Taiwo Oluwafemi

    Dear reader, thanks for your feed-back. Moving quickly to address your remark, the article clearly does not mention anything about an artiste being bigger than another based on the author’s thought, but rather, the article worked clearly on reality, on what is obtainble as regards the everyday thoughts of music fans towards an obstinate-major industry topic. This isn’t no one’s thought as it’s a collective one. Putting it out there isn’t an abberation or better still, shouldn’t be an abberation. And talking about insightful articles that are not for “10-year-olds,” you can always visit the site on Wednesdays to have a date… Thank you once again for your feed-back, we appreciate it and appreciate you. Be safe!

    tooxclusive is as stupid as the fucking article, so you are telling me yemi alade, Mr eazi, tiwa savage, wizkid, shatta wale are better than Davido cuz they appeared on Beyonce’s album. among all the artists only Burna was credited with a solo track and it is one of the best tracks in the album. my advice to tooxclusive is to focus on how to making yourselves better than talking shit all the time.

    Davido is better
    It dosen’t mean that before you’ll become a better artiste you’ll show on beyonce’s album
    She be God?
    Please leave all these comparison’s oh
    Davido last year was on 14albums and it made history why una no talk about am?
    She picked her choice mehn it might not even be her that did it maybe her management picked for her
    And if she had done a screening excercise and cancelled davido that’s when you can say this stuff
