During Wale’s first trip to Nigeria, he granted an interview to MTV Base Africa where he discussed his visits, collaborating with Nigerian artists and his music career in general. Some highlights are:
1. He wants to connect with D’Banj and Don Jazzy even more in terms of music projects.
2. He is glad and most proud of being one of the persons that helped the duo get back together.
3. He feels and does have a cousin/brother kind of relationship with Wizkid.
4. He would like to work with more Nigerian artists. He wants to start a Nigerian music movement that truly bridges the gap between the USA and Nigeria’s music industry.
5. He says Ice Prince gave him that “rough trap music straight out of Nigeria.” Hmmm . . . interesting and unexpected but good to know.
6. He likes Olamide, a lot. In his words, “I am just looking forward to taking Olamide to the states. I wanna push Olamide to push a project in English. I wanna push him. I think he is dope enough to have both.”
7. His favorite song of the moment is ‘Jaiye.’
