Nigerian Afrobeats and R&B singer, Joseph Akinwale Akinfenwa, professionally known as Joeboy, has stated that ace singer, Wizkid enabled upcoming artists to believe they can hit stardom in their youth.
The ‘Baby crooner’ stated this on the latest episode of the Body & Soul podcast, while talking about how Machala changed his life.
According to Joeboy, who is signed to Mr. Eazi’s Empawa Africa, before Wizkid changed the game, it was difficult for young artistes to make it in the music industry early.
Joeboy noted that when he first met the famous hitmaker he immediately realized he was going to be a successful artist.
“One thing I really appreciate about Wizkid is that he made young artistes believe that they could pop [hit stardom] at a young age.
Before Wiz, if any artiste pop, it was probably at a very later stage in life. But after Wiz young people started coming through.”
