Wizkid Secures Drake His First UK No. 1 Song

 Drake has secured his very first UK No. 1 songOne Dance featuring Nigerian superstar Wizkid.
It is incredible to think that as much global success that Drake has had, this will be his first No. 1 in the UK. It is no coincidence that this recent success and career landmark stems from collaboration with one of Africa’s biggest megastars, especially since African music is piping hot…again.

This is not the first time a global hip-hop artist has collaborated with a Nigerian or African artist and achieved huge success. In 2012 ‘The Entertainer’ Nigerian megastar D’banj collaborated with Kanye West on the global dance-pop hit ‘Oliver Twist.’ In 2015, Nigerian superstar Davido, released ‘Fans MI’ featuring Meek Mill and earlier this year he graced the cover of the uber-hip New York-based music publication Fader Magazine.
Davido was also one of the main music headliners at this year’s SXSW, such is the global interest and rapidly growing mainstream popularity of African music—especially coming out of Nigeria, Africa’s biggest nation.
