Nigerian afrobeats superstar, Ayo Balogun, professionally known as Wizkid, has described rap music as a “boring” genre.

According to him, rap is “dead now”, stressing that rappers “do the same shit, rap on the same beats, same flows”.

Wizkid stated this in an interview published in the latest issue of a UK magazine, 10+.

He also said Afrobeats is the new popular music.

He said, “Afrobeats is the new pop. I sold 2 million copies in America off of one song! Even some American artists don’t have a diamond record. If I’m being honest, I don’t listen to any other genre of music anymore.”

“If I’m being honest, I don’t listen to any other genre of music anymore”

“I don’t listen to rap – that shit is boring to me. It’s dead now, it’s tired. These guys do the same shit, rap on the same beats, same flows.”

The music star added: “No disrespect to nobody. I don’t have anything against rap or any other type of music. I have a lot of rappers as friends, like a lot. So I’m probably the wrong person to say this.”
