A Clip From Wizkid’s Ojuelegba Video

Wizkid may have silenced some
critics after his hit
song Ojuelegba was ranked
12th best song in the world in
the last calendar year, by New
York based magazine, The
Fader.

The fan favourite,
Ojuelegba which got a remix
from international rapper,
Drake, was ranked above chart
topping singles from American
superstars such as Future, Fetty
Wap, Rich Homie Quan among
others.

Here’s what was written
about Ojuelegba by Fader

Let’s get what we all already
know out of the way: Drake
hopped on this song from
Nigerian artist Wizkid for a
remix, generously making the
song more famous (at least in
America) than it might’ve been
on its own in 2015. But let me
state this clearly and definitively:
the song never needed him. No
matter the celebrity, you can’t
improve on perfection, even if
the Skepta verse that
accompanied Drake’s on the
remix was pretty great.
No,”Ojuelegba” is best on its
own, a graceful slice of rhythm
that does not need cultural
translation. Like Popcaan’s
“Everything Nice,” the iconic
global jam from last summer, it
has a message of grace,
thankfulness, and happy
perseverance that resonates in
every home. And that beat? It’s
got a shoulder-shrugging
momentum so joyful, how could
it not have wound its way all
over the world?
”.

The Starboy recently granted
The Fader, an interview where
he talked about how suprised he was by the success of Ojuelegba.
