Wale talks being “100% Nigerian” & Making Music with Davido & Wizkid

It was Big Sean identifying with Nigeria just a few days ago. Now, Wale has joined the list as he revealed in an interview that he is 100% Nigerian. The famzing is on.

In an interview with online medium, OkayAfricaWale revealed that he is 100% Nigerian, that besides, he has made music with a lot of Nigerians, and sees himself as a Nigerian through and through.

The talented rapper revealed that Fela Kuti, Shina Peters and King Sunny Ade are his musical influences, which would explain his fascination with experimenting with afrobeats despite being recognized as a rapper.

In his words: “We always used to dance to Shina Peters when we were young. Our parents would always play it in the house when we were kids.”

Talking about his collaboration with Davido and Wizkid, he said he had mad respect for them. It will be recalled that Davido brought him out during his show in the US and they performed Wale’s song together.

Speaking on the collabs, Wale said: I’ve known him [Davido] for a long time. I think I met him in DC several years ago. We just always stayed in contact with each other. Obviously, Davido is in a different city every two days, maybe another country every two days. We always stay in touch. Any time we’re close, we always link up.

We were in the studio and just going through beats. We got a lot of other songs too that haven’t even came out yet.

Wizkid and I have been working together for maybe over six or seven years now. We have probably put out eight or nine songs together. That was easy. We were in the studio with Eric Bellinger one day, and we just cooked it up.”

As Wale joins the list of famzers, who knows who’ll be next to identify with Nigeria? We can’t wait! It’s a good time to be Nigerian!
