The last ten years affirmed Wizkid as the artist of the decade, the supreme hit maker of the industry.
And it’s the truth. Every year, we had a at least one Wizkid hit song. From Jaiye Jaiye, Ojuelegba, Come Closer, Soco to Joro.
Yet is there anyone who can challenge him in a hit for hit battle?
Olamide. For someone who’s supplied 9 albums spread all over ten years, you sure would expect at least two hit songs from each album. For every Joro, Come Closer, Soco, Ojuelegba, there would be Durosoke, Wo, Motigbana, Science Student, Turn Up and Bobo
But apart from Olamide? Who else?
You would wonder. Like who can challenge the Starboy in a battle of hits?
