The “Bad To Me” crooner revealed that Afrobeats is taking over the music world and it’s now “the new pop”.

Wizkid added that he doesn’t listen to any other genre of music anymore, especially rap because it’s boring and dead.


He said; “Afrobeats is the new pop. I sold two million copies in America off of one song! Even some American artists don’t have a diamond record.

If I’m being honest, I don’t listen to any other genre of music anymore.”

“I don’t listen to rap – that shit is boring to me. It’s dead now, it’s tired. These guys do the same shit, rap on the same beats and the same flows,” he added.


“No disrespect to nobody. I don’t have anything against rap or any other type of music. I have a lot of rappers as friends, like a lot. So I’m probably the wrong person to say this.”
