British TV Host Adesope Olajide has said in an interview with DJ Abass, that without Wizkid paved the way for other successful singers like Davido and Burna Boy.


According to British TV Host Adesope, Wizkid was the first Nigerian artiste to develop a young audience fan base, an era he described as Justin Bieber’s era in Nigeria.

He further added that the Star Boy Records Boss inspired Davido and many others in the music scene today.

Adesope also stated that without Wizkid’s success, there won’t be a Davido, Burna Boy and the rest because at that time, young kids of his age were not allowed to make music and become big stars in Africa.
