2016 Essence Festival:Wizkid To Perform With Mariah Carey…
Essence has announced Wizkid as part of the annual Essence festival line up billed to hold in New Orleans Louisiana between June 30 and July 3, 2016.
This announcement was made Just days after the release of Drake‘s ‘One Dance’ official single, featuring Wizkid which made it to number 2 on iTunes USA and number 1 in several countries.
He will be performing alongside Mariah Carey, Maxwell, and many others.The starboy’s music would obviously be getting a strong platform and opportunity with the R&B/Hip-Hop fans. Hopefully his sound would be loved making him crossover stronger, to the U.S and International global market.
The pop star has become the first Nigerian artist to emerge on Billboard’s Twitter Last 24 hours chart courtesy of his feature in Drake’s’One dance’ song.
On ‘One Dance,’ the 6 God gets assistance from Wizkid, whom he worked with last year by featuring in a remix to the singer’s ‘Ojuelegba’ mega tune, and Kyla, sampling the Crazy Cousinz remix of her song, ‘Do You Mind’. This raises the bar a lot higher for the star pop singer helping to improve his brand visibility.
The tune ‘One dance’ features production by Ninteen85 with co-production credits by 40. Wizkid is obviously having a busy year so far going on international tours as well as local ones while also hatching major international collaborations as well as local music acts. At the end, the starboy gets to sell his music to a wider international audience.
