LET’S TALK! Wizkid Can Do “Zombie” But Can Fela Do “Piece Of Me”?

After Fela, Wizkid is probably the most influential artist of all time in Nigeria. Well, that’s debatable. 

Wizkid, though, is just one of the many artists that have been heavily influenced by the music of the late Afrobeat Legend, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti.

Since 2014, when WizKid sampled Fela‘s “Lady” on “Jaiye Jaiye,” a joint on his sophomore that featured Femi Kuti, Wiz has gone on to sample quite a number of Fela‘s music.

Most notable was when he sampled “Shakara” on “Sweet Love,” a dancehall song from “Sounds From The Other Side.”

Another of the popular Fela samples in Wizkid‘s discography is on a popular freestyle called “Zombie” he did in 2012. He started the song doing the “zombie oh zombie” chant, and it wasn’t bad.

Maybe if he had good production and some real backup, he would definitely kill “Zombie.”

There’s another freestyle called “Ghetto Youth,” produced by Sarz and released in 2017. The song has Fela-Esque adlibs and an interlude of “o fe she lu, ayakata.”

It’s true. Give Wizkid a live band and some weed, and he’ll start singing like Baba Fela. Wizkid can definitely do the Fela impression.

But can Fela do Wizkid? If Fela Kuti (God bless his soul) was still alive, with the god-tier level talent he has, will he be capable of doing the classic Wizkid music of today?

Already, there are a lot of people who are mirroring Wizkid‘s style. So, I don’t think it’ll be that hard, but what do you think?

Will Fela Kuti Be Able To Do Wizkid’s Style Of Music If He Was Still Alive?

Let’s hear from you.
