In an interview with famous American Radio host, Sway, Akon spoke about how the three giants are changing Nigerian music.
The singer described Wizkid as a Superstar and a born star.
For him, Wizkid is the poster child of Afrobeat and he is the biggest name in the industry.
He added that Wizkid is one of those guys that put up one record a year and the record last a whole year.
Wizkid is probably the poster child of Afrobeat and he is the biggest name”.
He added, “Wizkid is just a superstar, he is one of those guys that put up one record a year and the record last a whole year. He is a born star without a doubt”.
On Davido, he described him as the workaholic. For him, Davido is an underdog that fought hard to be where he is, though he had the support of his wealthy family.
“Davido is the hardest working. He was the underdog but what he has as support was his wealthy family, so he was able to come out every week with a new song and new video. He got more song than any Afrobeat artiste”.
Lastly, speaking about African giant, Burna Boy, Akon described him as the beast.
He said, “Burna Boy is a beast, he’s representing the culture on a level it needs to be represented on”.
