Wale talks Roc Nation rejecting Wizkid and how Drake’s ‘Controlla’ is ‘all Wizkid’
American rapper Wale has made a controversial statement about how Drake‘s song “Controlla” might have been influenced by Nigeria’s very own Wizkid.
Wale who was speaking in an interview with a New York Radio Station, said ‘Controlla’, one of the songs off Drake’s latest album ‘Views’, sounds exactly like a Wizkid song.
The rapper who has Nigerian roots, sat down with Ebro, Peter Rosenberg, and Laura Stylez to talk about his new single My PYT and during the almost 37 minutes interview, Wale talks about how he knew Davido and Wizkid would eventually blow up.
“I’m proud of Wizkid, Davido and Olamide, and a lot of the dope sounds coming out of Nigeria,” he said.
“I just knew it was going to get there because the whole 60% of the swag coming out of Africa comes from Nigeria,” the Nigerian-America rapper said, adding, “I always knew Wizkid. I remember bringing the idea of signing Wizkid to Roc Nation to the guys over there, [but] that was earlier, way before this time. But I knew it was going to get there.”
