Why John Boyega Picked Wizkid as His Favourite Nigerian Artiste

Wizkid, the Afrobeats star, is John Boyega’s favorite artiste over Burna Boy and Davido, according to the Nigerian-British actor.

Boyega discussed his favorite aspects about his home country, Nigeria, on the Netflix Rep Your Flag show.

Boyega, who recently acted in the film ‘They Cloned Tyrone,’ stated that Afrobeats is his favorite music genre.

“I would say Wiz (is my favourite artiste). I love Wiz. Obviously, Burna Boy and Davido are so much. But Wizkid has always had my heart from the beginning. That is who I have followed the longest,” he said.

“In Nigeria, we have different music genres. Afrobeats is just killing it right now.

“Obviously, I do like stepping in Lagos for detty December. Every year we must go to Lagos to parties. You know Nigerians like to enjoy.”

In 2018, Boyega revealed why he included Wizkid’s ‘Daddy Yo’ on the soundtrack for his film ‘Pacific Rim’.

Davido, Wizkid, and Burna Boy are considered to be the biggest artistes in Nigeria in contemporary times.

The singers have also thrown digs at each other on different occasions.

But in July 2022, Wizkid offered an olive branch to Davido and Burna Boy after he downplayed the rivalry between them.

“I want to tell you tonight, Starboy, I gat love for Burna Boy, I gat love for Davido…and I want to thank you the fans for supporting us,” he said at the 2022 Afronation music festival in Portugal.
