Wizkid told me not to copy him – Singer, Oxlade



Nigerian music act, Ikuforiji Olaitan Abdulrahman, professionally known as Oxlade has shared the career-related advise he got from his Ayodeji ‘Wizkid’ Balogun.

He said Wizkid advised him to observe his style of music and figure out a way of being unique without copying him.

Oxlade made this known during an interview on Kiss FM UK as he talked about his performance at the 21,000 capacity Accor arena in Paris, France.

He explained that the Joro crooner does not want him to follow the same path he took or to make the same mistakes.

According to him, Wizkid made it possible for him to have his first ever performance at the prestigious O2 Arena in 2018.

Also, Oxlade said the Ojuelegba crooner is the blueprint which other growing artistes use to master their craft.

He further said that Big Wiz is someone others run to whenever they need to check and balance their artistry.

He described Starboy as a big brother to him and also revealed that they are from the same neighbourhood. Oxlade stressed that all he has for Wizkid is love and he would always appreciate him.
