This wizkid joro song is pure and complete Trash. That nigga needs a fucking songwriter right now. Second dead song in less than two weeks. His lackadaisical nonsensical lyrics has run its course. He needs to emulate burna boy and write actual complex lyrics. Tired of this shit

Wizkid need to work with songwriters. It wouldn't make him less of a musician. Afrobeat has spread across the globe. People want content and the earlier he realises that his fanbase isn't limited to Surulere, the better for him.
Joro is 2/10 lyrically
Production wise – 8/10

The joro song is not so bad.
Would have been much better with sound lyrics. Sounded like he was chewing mouth. It’s becoming a trend for wizkid
He can sing the songs, his name can help with publicity. I think he just needs a good songwriter
