‘Nigerian Music Going Global’ on AfricaMusicLaw.com tracks the slow but steady rise and infiltration of contemporary Nigerian music and artists in Western mainstream culture across the globe. Today’s feature sees American music stars Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz rocking to Nigerian artist Wizkid’s ‘Ojuelegba,’ a hit single off his latest album ‘Ayo.’ Ayo means joy in the Yoruba language.
Last month, we saw Drake and Skepta drop a remixed version of Ojuelegba.
