South African pop sensation, Tyla, has placed Afrobeats superstar, Wizkid on the same level with music greats like Michael Jackson, Rihanna and Drake.
The ‘Water’ hit maker spoke during a recent interview on the Bianca Show while responding to a question about who are her top five greatest musicians of all-time.
The budding 21-year-old artiste mentioned late pop icon, Michael Jackson, American stars, Britney Spears, Rihanna, Canadian rapper Drake, and Nigerian Grammy winner, Wizkid.
Tyla explained that her inclusion of Wizkid on the list was because of his longevity and impact on the African music scene.
“My top five musical artists of all-time, obviously, Michael Jackson, Rihanna, Drake… It is always difficult to find the last one. There’s 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.”
