WIZKID ENTERED IN THE GUINNESS BOOK OF WORLD RECORDS FOR HIS COLLABO WITH DRAKE

whizdrakeWizkid has entered the Guinness book of world records.

The Nigerian pop singer has added his name to the few Nigerians in the Guinness book of world record after his collaboration record with Drake, One Dance became the most streamed song on Spotify globally. Wizkid played a vital role in the creation of the record.

Nigerias name was first put on the list in 2006 after Kafayat Shafau (Kaffy) got the record for longest dance in the world. After this, Harrison Chinedu, Chidra Annemega and Obi Ajuanumo also earned records for different feats.

Drakes Views was streamed 2.6 billion times on Spotify in 2016. Released in April 2016, the LPs most popular tracks include Controlla, Too Good (feat. Rihanna) and One Dance (feat. Wizkid & Kyla), the most streamed track in Spotifys history (1.1 billion) as of 26 April 2017.

The success of Views and One Dance set Wizkid up for his international career which has led to the release of his debut Sony project, Sounds From The Other Side.

MR. EAZI RELEASES LEG OVER REMIX FT MAJOR LAZER FRENCH MONTANA & TY DOLLA SIGN

LegoverIn a collaboration with two of hip hops biggest names, Mr. Eazi has released a remix to the hit track Leg Over. The track that saw over 19 million views on Youtube, featured on countdowns from Lagos to London.

The track that features mega star Wizkid is probably the one track that introduced the world to Nigerian talent that is Mr. Eazi.

The 26-year-old has now reworked his hit track Leg Over, with a feature from French Montana and Ty Dolla Sign on a Major Lazer remix. The track is a mash-up of all their musical styles but unfortunately, it seems that French Montana just could not catch onto the Afrobeat wave. Morocco born, rapper Montana has difficulty riding the beat and instead sounds as though he might be rapping to a totally different track. Nonetheless, Major Lazer delivered on the new beats, giving them a style that would be a mix between pop and electronic dance vibe.

This remix may have been Mr. Eazis attempt at winning over new markets like his fellow Nigerian WizKid. However, it seems his choice of collaborators was poor.

COMMON BECOMES THE FIRST RAPPER TO WIN AN OSCAR,EMMY AND GRAMMY AWARDS

common rapper Lonnie Rashid Lynn, Jr.better known by his stage name Common is an American hip hop recording artist, actor, poet and film producer

Common is one step closer to hip-hop history. The Chicago emcee nabbed an Emmy award at the Primetime Emmy Awards over the weekend for Letter To The Free, a song he penned in collaboration with Robert Glasper for Ava DuVernays powerful 13th documentary. Winning in the Outstanding Original Music And Lyrics category, it marked the first time a rapper had ever won an Oscar, an Emmy and a Grammy award.

The historic feat means that Common, the man Jay-Z famously said he wanted to rhyme like before he sold five million records, is one Tony win away from becoming the 13th person in history to win an EGOT, practically the entertainment Grand Slam. Any time I get a chance to work with Ava DuVernay it leads to something positive, something strong, Common told Deadline after winning the award.

He has a point. Glory, the single he and John Legend earned a Golden Globe and Academy Award for was for DuVernays Martin Luther King biopic Selma.
