Woli Arole stated this on his Twitter page where he revealed that Fela is being studied in universities abroad and as such, he shouldn’t be compared to Wizkid.
According to him, when he went to study filmmaking in London, his lecturer asked him where he’s from and when he replied that he’s from Nigeria, the lecturer followed up with another question asking whether he knows Fela Kuti.
”Please nobody should compare WIZKID and FELA around me ooooooo. When I went to study “Filmmaking in London” my lecturer asked me “Where are you from? I replied “Nigeria”. He replied “Do you know FELA?. Mo foh. Fela is been studied in Universities abroad,’ he wrote.
KanyiDaily recalls that a former presidential aide, Reno Omokri had called on President Muhammadu Buhari to make Wizkid a global ambassador representing Nigeria as a whole.
