WizKid has had his share of international recognition right from his big hit Ojuelegba which had a remix featuring world hip-hop big guns, Scepta and Drake, to collaboration with Chris Brown, and pop royalty, Beyonce.
Therefore, when American rapper Snoop Dogg in an Instagram live stream on Saturday was seen vibing to Essence, a track on Wizkid’s Made in Lagos Album, his fans could not be happier, especially for Tems, a relatively new act who was featured on the song.
Reacting to the video, @iamOkon tweeted, “Snoop Dogg vibing to Wizkid ‘s jam “Essence” where he featured Tems of Starboy’s Made in Lagos album is one of the cutest things you’ll see in the internet today.”
Alluding to WizKids promotional tweet for the Essence music video, @iamfelaIbadan wrote:
Real magic still exist Wizkid × Tems. I am happy for Tems man…… Snoop Dogg.”
@Vd draker congratulating the new act for recognition by that hip-hop legend said, “Essence gone wild, Tems blown already.”
@shedoo163 appraising the song, regarded Snoop Dogg as a legend who recognised the artistry in the song.
“Wiz X Tems made a hit the sound and melody is electrifying, it enters deep into the soul cooling the mind, body, and soul. Indeed Made in Lagos is a forever unfaded type of Album. Real music genius recognizes real sound,” he said.
@Gbafe_Pounds confirming that the collaborations will take Tems a bigger stage tweeted,
“Omo Wizkid dey sing. Kai! Big up to Tems also, this collaboration really took her places.”
Made in Lagos, Wizkid’s fourth studio album continues to garner accolades after release in October last year.
Surpassing 100 million streams across five music streaming platforms within a hundred days of release, it debuted at no. 15 on the UK Albums Chart, and also hit the number two spot on the Billboard US world album charts.
