Why WIZKID Baba nla Is The Only STARBOY.
BY FEHINTI OJELABI
The Original Starboy Wizkid, as far as I’m concerned is yet to disappoint me in his collaborations nationally or internationally whether it’s with R2bees or Femi Kuti or Drake or Major Lazer or my main Caribbean ting Vybz kartel. Wizkid gives millions of his fans hit after hit, club banger after club banger, feature after feature and even better beats. I wouldn’t even know which of his songs to play first when I’m given the aux cord because I just love everything he drops, from the matter ft Maleek Berry or Bad girl ft Jesse Jagz or Daddy yo or Tonight ft R2bees or Ojuelegba remix with Skepta and Drake or Jaiye jaiye ft Femi Kuti. To make a song with you, you must be talented, gifted and respected.
And let me just state no one should be allowed to say that “The Weeknd is starboy” huhh huhh honey I wouldn’t permit that. I’m just pissed that the Weeknd thought he could just drop a video with Daft Punk on the 28th of September 2016 driving a Hyper-hybrid McLaren P1 with his plate number saying “star boy” and then just put out a “star boy” album in November.
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t hate the Weeknd; in fact contrary to what you may have perceived from my previous frustration I actually love them both. The Weeknd exceptionally delivered when he dropped reminder, can’t feel my face, lust with Lana Del Rey, feel it coming, the hills, of course one of my major favs the morning.
So I am just going to let this be a reminder, ha-ha see what I did there. Okay but seriously though, Wizkid dropped the Superstar album in 2011 and even went ahead to establish Starboy entertainment in March 2013, gave us the Ayo album in 2014 and his most recent album Sounds from the other side in 2017. Not a single track on any album or feature has ever fallen short of my expectations; you can always trust Wizkid to kill every feature and even do better than the owner of the track.
