Video: It’s a joke to compare wizkid to Davido – Singer, Spyro



Nigerian singer, Spyro has said that music superstar, David Adeleke also known as Davido is superior to Ayodeji Balogun aka Wizkid.

He stated this during a question and answer session on Urban Xtra, when he was asked whom he prefers between the two artistes.

Spyro said it is a joke to compare Wizkid to Davido, because the Omo Baba Olowo surpasses everyone in the industry in terms of success.

He talked about how the DWM boss has helped different artistes including himself, whereas nobody can mention a single artiste that Wizkid helped since he started music.

Spyro said that he measures success by the number of people a person has made into a notable individual and Davido ticks the box for him.

He, however, stated that Wizkid is also a fantastic person, but he does not think that he is up to OBO’s level.

Meanwhile, Davido, Wizkid and Burna Boy, have been listed on Forbes Africa’s Top 20 musicians list alongside entertainers from South Africa, Tanzania, Congo and Republic of Benin.

In an article published on Forbes site, it revealed that the trio made the list alongside four other Nigerian entertainers.

The business magazine acknowledged that African music is getting a deserving global recognition.

“It is clear that African music is getting the recognition it deserves and the continent’s distinctive sounds are taking the world by storm, this includes Amapiano, Afropop, Afrobeat, Gengetone and more.”

Other Nigerian singers included in the list are, Tiwa Savage, Innocent ‘2Face’ Idibia, Mr Eazi and KIDDO.

According to Forbes; ”The music emanating out of Africa today is record-breaking in every sense. with the new sounds, there have been new pathways to success for African artists. these creators have taken everything from Amapiano to Afrobeats and told the african growth story, in decibels that have made the world sit up.

Even as more Grammy awards find a home on the continent, these top 20 musical artists are on track to deliver more. together they say that the future of the African music industry is big, bright and bountiful.”
