Music ace, Wizkid has explained how he met Damian Marley, whom he featured in the track, ‘blessed’ in his recently released album, “Made In Lagos.”
According to Wizkid who spoke on Capital Xtra’s The Norte Show, Damian Marley changed his life.
Wizkid added that Marley, who is the son of late Reggae artist, Bob Marley picked his cup that fell from his hotel balcony while promoting his album, ‘Sounds From the Other Side,’ in New York, United States of America.
He said, “Damian Marley changed my life. He changed the way I live. After the session, it changed a lot for me. I recalled that I was in New York (United States of America) promoting my last album, Sounds From the Other Side, and I was asked who I would love to a collaborate with and I said ‘Damian Marley’. Then I went back to my hotel. I kid you not, I was at the balcony of my suite with some of my friends when my cup fell to the balcony downstairs. Guess who picked up my cup? Damian Marley. We later went to a restaurant and talked. The session I had with him was spiritual. We spoke about everything. We spoke about kids, family and other important things. That was a very insightful session for me. He is a great guy with great energy. Making that song was a blessing.”
Commenting on the issue of police brutality in Nigeria, the pop star stated that he was brutalised by the police before he became famous, adding that Nigeria has had 60 years of political injustice, nepotism, madness, and corruption.
“Police brutality is a serious situation back home in Nigeria. It has been 60 years of political injustice, nepotism, madness and corruption at the highest level. It is sad that my son is about to be 10 years old and Nigeria is still going through all these madness. If I didn’t speak up or use my voice, then I would be a coward. I will continue to speak about things that affect people in their daily lives. I had been a victim of police brutality before I became popular and I know it still goes on. That needs to end. We deserve good governance in Nigeria,” he said.
