Wizkid ft Skepta – “Longtime” Stream & Download
Wizkid began recording his debut studio album Superstar in 2009. He released “Holla at Your Boy” as the album’s lead single on 2 January 2010. The song nominated for Best Pop Single but earned him the Next Rated award at The Headies 2011. In addition to winning the award, he was awarded a 2012 Hyundai Sonata courtesy of the organizers. Its music video was nominated for Most Gifted Newcomer Video at the 2011 Channel O Music Video Awards.
Joseph Junior Adenuga was born 19 September, 1982, known professionally as Skepta, is a British rapper, songwriter and record producer from Tottenham, North London. Skepta, alongside his younger brother Jme, joined Roll Deep for a short period of time before becoming founding members of Boy Better Know in 2005.
It’s been three years since we were last afforded the privilege of a WizKid album. Fans have enjoyed the singles and features in between, but a full project from the StarBoy himself has been long awaited. Whilst ‘Sounds From The Other Side’ showcased WizKid in the context of the global stage with varying genres, his newest album sees a return to home with sounds more consistent with traditional Afrobeats. Made in Lagos is one of WizKid’s most serene albums yet and a memorable comeback from one of Afrobeats’ most loved princes.
This is reiterated in two of my personal favourites ‘Mighty Wine’ and ‘Gyrate’ where WizKid’s distinctive flow carries these euphonious melodies and showcases his evolution since entering the scene in 2011.Artists can sometimes risk being swallowed by dominant features however, with pleasant additions from the likes of Damian Marley and Skepta, WizKid still holds his own and listeners are unable to forget who’s running the show in singles ‘Blessed’ and ‘Longtime’.
This sometimes blends so well, differentiation may not always be easy. Despite this, the album displays a maturity in WizKid and his growth can be heard as he marries easy listening and warm upbeat tempos across his fourth studio album. WizKid offers a cohesive collection of singles and there’s an intentionality in the production that has been seen across all of his albums to date. There’s a distinct thread throughout the tracks which allow for a seamlessness on the project.
Award-winning Nigerian singer and songwritter, Wizkid makes a return as he drops off a new song he titles “Longtime” featuring Nigerian born Uk rapper, Skepta. The track “Longtime” is taken off Wizkid fourth studio album “Made In Lagos“.
