The Wizkid v 2Baba mash-up is probably the biggest we’ll ever have in the industry.
Although the two legends come from different eras and have like a decade between them, they’ve come to be (often simultaneously) regarded as the MVP’s of afro-pop and Afrobeats.
There is, as a matter of fact, no question about how good they are and no doubt whatsoever about their abilities. The status they have attained has come as a result of many years of hard work and consistency.
2Baba (mostly referred to as 2Face), for instance, has hits for days. He has two classic albums with numerous hits. He has so many hits that you’d wonder if any artist can really hold a candle to him. 2baba is a serial hitmaker, to say the least.
That’s where Wiz comes in. The 31-year-old maestro who first stormed the scene in 2011, has been around for a decade now and is still making hits.
He’s not slowing down at all, even though he’s done enough music to last a lifetime. If there’s anyone that can go head-to-head with 2Baba, then it’s gotta be Wizkid.
