In the past months, Wizkid has successfully delivered both quantity and quality. Most of the quantity has come courtesy of the STARBOY Music Soundcloud page and helped Wiz release some old content without the consequences an official single has most times. The latest of these type releases is Masterkraft produced, Medicine.
While Sounds From The Other Side is off to a good start, one of the more common grouses with the project centered around the idea that Wiz failed to make truly authentic African music with cuts like Sweet Love standing alone in that category. In Mayowa Idowu’s analysis of the Wizkid push to the rest of the world, he advised that every now and then, Wizkid appeals to the long time supporters with releases that particularly hit home as opposed to going the international route totally and for all intents and purposes, Medicine seems to be exactly that.
With songs like these, Wizkid appeals to the listeners who may be disconcerted by the international push, a move he must make once in a while to guarantee he doesn’t lose touch with home.
