How Wizkid Changed Nigerian Music Industry – Remi Aluko

Nigerian Fuji singer, Remi Aluko has claimed that Wizkid changed the Nigerian music industry in terms of the music economy and boosted replay value.

Speaking in a podcast interview with Echo Room, Aluko disclosed that before Wizkid ventured into the music industry, Nigerian songs were usually lengthy but he changed that by putting out shorter songs.

The fuji artist further stated that other artists followed Wizkid when they saw that his recording method bloated song replay value.


Aluko said;  “Wizkid did something in the Nigerian music industry. And I picked up from there. Back then, a song used to last for five or four minutes.

“But go and check now, Wizkid is the one that changed the method of music so you don’t need to waste music.

“He changed the method of recording in Nigeria. He will bring the chorus and after that, he will just give you like 16 bars and after that, he will go back to the chorus. If you love the music, you play it again.”
