Nigerian music superstar Wizkid is set to tear roofs apart again as he hints a new single with 6 god and Canadian rapper Drake.
“Just know i’m about to release some of the best works I’ve ever recorded!!” Wizkid tweeted in response to a fan asking for new music. Then, he hinted at what may be in store: “6god x Real Starboy about to school everybody!!”
“Real Starboy” is likely a reference to The Weeknd: “Starboy” is Wizkid’s nickname, and recently became the title of the new album and single from The Weeknd. “Everybody’s a star!” Wizkid said when the names were announced.

Enjoying the biggest times in his music career yet, Wizkid has for the past months reigned on the biggest global music charts with the hit single One Dance that had Drake and Kyla on it.
One Dance joined an elite list of singles in the Billboard Hot 100‘s history to rule for double-digit weeks. It placed first for 10 consecutive weeks and served as Drake’s longest-leading No. 1 single in his career.
With 1.9 million units sold already places fourth on the top 10 songs by sales worldwide.
It also places third on the On-demand streaming with 481.9 million streams. It comes after Desiigner’s Panda and Work from Rihanna and Drake.
It is therefore not surprising that such an announcement comes as a big deal for world music and fans of the Ojuelegba hit maker.
