Using songwriters or sampling songs is something that is a norm in some other parts of the world but here in Nigeria, it is almost demonized and artists who hire songwriters or sample songs regularly are written off as ‘Untalented’.
One artist who has had his fair share of this criticism for using songwriters is Davido due to a couple of his hit songs that were written by others or that he bought. On the other hand, Wizkid fans never cease to brag about how their fav ‘Wizkid’ never uses songwriters or sample songs but this new revelation hit them hard as we’ve now discovered the record that Wizkid sampled on his first hit record ‘Holla At Your Boy’.
As seen in the video below, Wizkid sampled the record ‘Girls’ by Se7en featuring Lil Kim. The song ‘Girls’ by Se7en was released in 2009 while Wizkid’s Holla At Your Boy was released in 2010. Following the recent discovery, the music video for ‘Holla At Your Boy’ has been taken down on YouTube by his former record label ‘Empire Mates Entertainment’ (EME). See the video below.
