Looks like African rappers are really coming for these accolades.
Just days after we reported that Cassper Nyovest’s Tito Mboweni music video hit 720 000 Youtube within one week, Wizkid’s Come Closer music video has now cemented Wizkid’s global prominence as it amassed 1 million views barely 24 hours after being released.
In less than a week, the video now has over 2,5 million views.
The dancehall banger features Canadian rapper Drake, whom some fans were upset he does not appear in the video.
Wizkid also collaborated with Drake on his Billboard #1 single One Dance, also produced by South African producer Dj Maphorisa.
