Nigerian singer, Portable has appealed to the Grammy award-winning musician Wizkid, urging him to reconnect with his roots and sing about the struggles of the past.
Portable, who made the call during a conversation on the Honest Bunch podcast, emphasized that such themes have been a wellspring of inspiration for his own lyrical creations.
He expressed his deep admiration for Wizkid’s musical journey and his ability in weaving personal tales into his compositions like his hit song, “Ojuelegba,” which poetically recounts the artist’s early life struggles in the trenches before ascending to his present stature as a prominent musical figure.
Throughout the podcast exchange, Portable lauded WizKid’s musical prowess and urged him to produce more music that resonates with the enduring trials of those who continue to confront daily hardships.
Portable stated that WizKid’s capacity to recount his journey from modest beginnings to worldwide fame serves a source of inspiration for numerous individuals, including himself.
