Wizkid’s statement is being misunderstood, he’s not running away from Afrobeats – Joeboy

Nigerian singer Joeboy has stated that Grammy-winning colleague Wizkid is misunderstood.


According to him, Wizkid’s recent comment on Afrobeats was taken out of context.


Recall that Wizkid earned backlash after he denounced Afrobeats on social media recently.


He explained that his decision to cease identifying as an Afrobeats artiste was because he makes “all sorts of music.”


Reacting in the latest episode of the Big Friday Day Show with Tacha on Cool FM, Lagos, Joeboy insisted that Wizkid was misunderstood, stressing that the singer wasn’t ditching Afrobeats.


He said, “Wizkid’s statement is being misunderstood, he is not running away from Afrobeats. All we are saying is our identity is Afrobeats but please don’t box us because we can make other genres of music too.”
