Wizkid has gone so international now with ‘Ojuelegba’ and Drake is never shy to admit he’s so proud and honoured to be on the jam!
Before now, rapper Drake has kept mum on what inspired him to do it, until his latest feature in the 100th issue of FADER magazine.
He said in the magazine that:
“I just did it because I was in the moment,” he said. “I wasn’t thinking like, ‘Oh man, I gotta get my brand up in Nigeria. Not to say that’s not important. I’m super-honored to be on that song.”
Drake then revealed that he first heard the song through Skepta and that Ojuelegba was so remarkable it forced him, like FADER puts it:
“..to rap in a way he’s never rapped before, to the extent that it takes him a couple of bars to find the swing of the beat. As soon as he does find it (it happens right as he’s singing Pree me, dem a pree me, Jamaican patois for “they’re watching me”) his vocals and the music click into place, and suddenly the song sounds like it could be a stateside hit.”
