There are very few artistes in Nigeria who has
gotten to the height in their career like the
legendary 2face Idibia. There is absolutely no
achievement he hasn’t accomplished in his
music career span that he had to delve into
acting just to explore other talents he
possesses.
So many artistes look up to him and want
to emulate him by sounding like him,
dressing like him and even try to act like
him. He is the only hip hop artistes in our
generation who has attained legendary
status because of his unique nature and
song writing skill. If there is anyone who
can contend with him then it has to be our
very own starboy, Wizkid .
Wizkid rise from just a random artiste to
an internationally acclaimed superstar is a
source of motivation and inspiration to
other African artistes that they can get to
the peak of their career if they dream big
and work hard. From the days of “Hola at
Your Boy ” to “ Ojuelegba”, Wizkid has grown
and matured in his music that he now
features on top American and UK artistes
songs like Drake’s “One Dance”, Tinnie
Tempah’s “ Mamacita” just to mention a
few.
Just like 2face, Wizkid has won every major
awards and recognitions that a successful
artiste should win. He has won BET
Awards, MOBO Awards, 5 times The
Headies Award, 2 Channel O Music Awards,
MAMA Awards, Afrimma Awards and many
others. Wizkid has also received other top
nominations at the MTV Europe Music
Awards and World Music Awards.
In terms of International exposure Wizkid
beats 2face hands down in that criterion.
The number of international collaborations
he has done with top international artistes
is unimaginable for an African artiste. This
year alone he has worked with Drake, Chris
Brown, Tinnie Tempah, French Montana,
Trey Songz, Dj Henry, Hoody Baby and
Justine Skye his alleged American
girlfriend. 2face has also worked with some
top international artistes like Wyklef, T-
Pain, Beenie Man,Sway and Bridget Kelly.
Wizkid was the first Nigerian artiste to
feature on Billborad, an international music
chart courtesy of his role in Drake’s “One
Dance” song which is off his album
‘VIEWS’. This is a feet no other Nigerian
has been able to reach even 2face have
never featured on Billboard before. The
song peaked on the number one spot on
Billboard for seven consecutive weeks tying
Michael Jackson’s record.
2face is still one of Africa’s biggest artistes
and has headlined some of the biggest
shows and tours in the country and beyond
but he hasn’t toured major European and
America cities with top international
artistes. Wizkid on the other hand has
toured Europe, America and even Africa
with top international artistes like Chris
Brown, French Montana, August Alsina,
Mariah Carey, Maxwell, Calvin Harris and
Kendrick Lamar.
2face has some of the best albums ever
released in Nigeria and he still has his
most evergreen song ‘African Queen’ to his
name. His evergreen albums are “Grass 2
Grace”, “Face 2 Face ”, “ Away and Beyond”
and “The Ascension ”. Wizkid has just two
albums “Superstar” and “ Ayo” and they are
still evergreen. With only two albums to his
name Wizkid has been able to carve a niche
for himself to becoming Africa’s pride to
the world.
To cut the long story short, from my own
perspective I think Wizkid has gotten to the
same level that 2face is and from the way
he is going he might surpass him and also
attain legendary status in a matter of
years. There is hardly nothing 2face has
achieved that Wizkid have not done or
surpass. But can Wizkid command the
same respect back at home just like 2face?I
would say NO and I would leave it at that.

    To me hard work pays and is a matter of time. It took only Ojuwelegba to turn everything around. Just keep doing what you know how to do best and definitely one will speak volume.

    And as for commanding respect back home in Nigeria, Tuface is at the top cos of his Age and because he has been there for decade.
