From releasing new singles and videos to interviews, the singer seems to be all over the media. Recently BBC, Channel4 released the video of their interview with Wizkid confirming what most Nigerians already know about modern Afropop and Wizkid’s place in the progression of renewed global awareness.

This Is The Hottest Song Right Now.” He talks on how Afropop is becoming a global genre and the global audience is catching up on it.
