Nigerian famous afrobeat star artist, Wizkid, has in a recent interview with Okay Africa on Thursday revealed a lot we need to know about what he’s up to this year. The StarBoy record boss spoke extensively on his latest song ‘Joro’, which was released a some days ago.
Wizkid disclosed that the song “Joro” was inspired by love.
It was inspired by love. It’s talking about not wanting to lose love. “Joro” means enjoyment, so on the chorus it means at the end of the day, “if I can be with you, we can enjoy ourselves.
He went on to disclose some behind the scene moment about the song:
[It was] produced by Northboi and mixed by STG. Big up to my guys. There was a part recorded when I had my son Zion with me. I actually had to wait for him to sleep. I wanted to drop it to mark Nigerian Independence. It’s for my people. I always want to recognize my people, my country.’
Despite the fact that some critics are of the opinion that the song ‘Joro’ lacked content, Wizkid, however, on his part seems not be bothered about their negative reviews as he was on his StarBoyFest project that month.
He is also working on the released of his next album, Made In Lagos, which is expected to be out next year and taking a look at the title of the album will be focus on Nigeria content unlike his album Sound From The Other Side SFTOS released in 2017 which focused on the international scene.
