Wizkid may have silenced some critics after his hit song Ojuelegba was ranked 12th best song in the world in the last calendar year, by New York based magazine, The Fader.
The fan favourite, Ojuelegba which got a remix from international rapper, Drake, was ranked above chart topping singles from American superstars such as Future, Fetty Wap, Rich Homie Quan among others.
Here’s what was written about Ojuelegba by Fader
“Let’s get what we all already know out of the way: Drake hopped on this song from Nigerian artist Wizkid for a remix, generously making the song more famous (at least in America) than it might’ve been on its own in 2015.
But let me state this clearly and definitively: the song never needed him. No matter the celebrity, you can’t improve on perfection, even if the Skepta verse that accompanied Drake’s on the remix was pretty great.
No,”Ojuelegba” is best on its own, a graceful slice of rhythm that does not need cultural translation. Like Popcaan’s “Everything Nice,” the iconic global jam from last summer, it has a message of grace, thankfulness, and happy perseverance that resonates in every home. And that beat? It’s got a shoulder-shrugging momentum so joyful, how could it not have wound its way all over the world?”.
