British-Nigerian rapper, Joseph Junior Adenuga, aka Skepta, says it is more important for him to be on a song with Nigerian international act, Wizkid than with Canadian rapper, Aubrey ‘Drake’ Graham.
Skepta, fondly called Big Smoke, recently dropped a five-track Hip Hop project titled ‘All in’. In the work, he featured Nigerian Alte artiste, Teezee, American singer and producer Kid Kudi, and Colombian singer J.Balvin.
Speaking at an event organized for the EP release, Skepta disclosed that he would rather have Wizkid on a song with him than have Drake as a featured artist.
”Me and Drake’s first meeting musically was on a Wizkid record. That was more important to me than asking Drake to jump on a song of mine.” he said.
While noting that Wiz is a superstar, Skepta said hence the reason he had always been rooting for him.
It would be noted that Skepta was essential in getting Drake to work with Wizkid on not one, but three tracks, Ojuelegba remix and One Dance in 2016 as well as ‘Come Closer’ in 2017.
