South African singer, Tyla has likened Afrobeats artist Wizkid to musical icons such as Drake, Rihanna, and the late Michael Jackson, placing him on a similar elevated status.
In an interview on ‘The Bianca Show’, Tyla was asked which five musicians she thought were the best of all time. She listed Michael Jackson, Britney Spears, Drake, Rihanna, and Wizkid.
She specified that Wizkid’s inclusion on the list was attributed to his significant influence and enduring presence in the African music industry.
“My top five musical artists of all-time, obviously, Michael Jackson, Rihanna, Drake… It is always difficult to find the last one.”
“There are so many but I will say Wizkid. He has been around so long and has done so much for the culture and the genre[African music], so I definitely put him there.”
