accustomed to the lovey-dovey tunes Wizkid has dished out.
Even if we haven’t heard the snippet of his next song, we could guess it would be about love.
That’s what he’s good at—doling out his thrilling feelings of experiencing love.
But the other side is, Wizkid does make conscious music and there are those rare moments when his songs are motivational.
Having traversed through paths of pains, suffering as an upcoming act, there are some motivational songs from the Starboy you should listen to, to hype up your energy this new week.
Many would have grown tired of hearing Ojuelegba. Personally, it’s my most played song of Wizkid’s discography.
The details of growing up in a city where you have to struggle is enmeshed here. Wizkid put it all here—the vivid storytelling, apt scenery and his bond with his mother—all appear here.
2. Wad Up feat. D’Prince
Wad up is so underrated and slept on. Wizkid connects the less attention he received while coming up, to the massive attention he’s now gaining after being a superstar.
The melancholic piano melodies helps to boost Wizkid’s pained vocals.
Ever been dumped by a woman because you were poor? You’ll find motivation on this song.
3. Cover Me
While it might be like an uptempo, party starter, catchy song, the message embedded in this song can’t be forgotten: “No forget say your dream no fit happen for one night”
The laidback drums and dazzling horn sample all helps to set the tone for such a melodious delivery from the Starboy.
4. Lagos To Kampala
Perhaps one of the best collaborations we’ve ever heard in the industry.
This elicited emotions for sure and this duet brought back old experiences filled with gratitude this time.
Wizkid reminisces here, reviving his ghetto memories, giving a shout out to Solo and basking in his present life joy.
If solo tell me say I no go blow
5. No Lele
While listening to his debut album, the emotional touch in this track was what propelled me to discover more of the album’s goodness.
The beat, a mashup wonder of hard hitting percussion and synths aided Wizkid to express with enthusiasm: “See, I go be number one, as a born champion no lele”
And now, he is a champion.
