In the past 7 months, Wizkid’s minimal musical contributions have seen him focus more on collaborating- sharing his vocal gifts. Fresh off his possibly career changing performance on Beyonce’s Brown Skin Girl, he pitches his tent in the United Kingdom where he’s tapped by one of London’s raves of the moment, Kojo Funds for his first official single of 2019, the Rymez and GA produced I Like.
Feeding off the synergy they already established on Stefflon Don’s Money Gang and Yxng Bane’s Fine Wine remix, the duo deliver stellar performances on the 808s-driven love song tempered in elements of Afro-Pop, Dancehall and Hip-hop.
With Kojo Funds as the track’s major player, Wizkid comes in on the second verse doing what he does best- charming the pants off his listeners with midtempo Afro-Caribbean inspired vocals that fluidly deliver a sensual narrative.
Kojo Funds and Wizkid are a match made in sound heaven and I Like is proof of a potentially bankable partnership.
