Wizkid speaks on his collaboration with Rkelly on the Buffet album.
When Wizkid’s name popped on Rkelly’s Buffet album track-list, we all thought it was some other dude in the United States bearing the same moniker. But our doubts were laid to rest when the album finally dropped and the album “really” featured the Nigerian popstar, Wizkid.
Well, it’s not just lovers of Nigerian music, who are excited by this collaboration. Wizkid has expressed his joy on being featured by Rkelly, who is regarded as the modern king of R&B.
In a chat with HipTV, Wizkid made it known that he feels very honoured to have been recognized by someone like Rkelly.
“It feels cool, big shout out to RKelly for putting me on the album. He’s a legend right there, so respect to him for putting me on the album, I really appreciate it,” the Nigerian said.
Wizkid is currently Nigeria’s biggest export to the international community in the last 3 years. He has had collaborations with Drake, Skepta, Akon, Tyga and a soon to be released collaboration with Chris Brown.
The song featuring Wizkid on the Buffet album is titled, I just want to thank you, is currently the biggest song off the album in Nigeria, alongside the lead single, Backyard Party.
