Nigerian singer, Sound Sultan has reacted to the recent praise Wizkid has been getting as regards him being compared with legendary afrobeat singer, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti..In a chat with HipTV, the veteran singer urged Nigerians to drop the comparison between the two singers as they are of different time.
He then went further to reveal he doesn’t want the comparison to weigh down the singer as it is not necessary to compare Fela and Wizkid
“I don’t want anybody to start comparing Wizkid with Fela, they are on different spaces..
Wizkid tells you, even when you read his lyrics, he will tell you Fela back.. This is someone trying to idolise Fela..
I am sure he doesn’t want that comparison
Wizkid is in a space that he is trying to make Africa proud in this time and this age, let him enjoy, let him evolve without the comparison”
