“Rap Is Dead!, Afrobeats Is The New Pop…” – Wizkid Shades Nigerian Rappers, Calls Them Boring

Wizkid declares Rap (Hip-Hop) dead and boring.

Nigeria’s biggest Afrobeats exporter, Ayodeji Balogun popularly known as Wizkid reveals he doesn’t listen to rap music because the music genre is “dead and boring”.

Speaking in a recent interview with 10 magazine (a British luxury quarterly magazine published in London, UK), Big Wiz said: “Afrobeats is the new pop. I sold two million copies in America off of one song! Even some American artists don’t have a diamond record. If I’m being honest, I don’t listen to any other genre of music anymore.

I don’t listen to rap – that shit is boring to me. It’s dead now, it’s tired. These guys do the same shit, rap on the same beats and the same flows.”
