Nigerian Grammy Award winner has been featured on GQ Magazine as the “King of Afropop” in the popular international magazine brand’s October Issue.

GQ is an American worldwide men’s magazine that focuses on fashion and fitness and is published by Conde Nast in New York City on a monthly basis. Justin Bieber, Post Malone, and Burna Boy were among the celebrities who graced the cover of the magazine last year.

GQ hailed Wizkid as the King of Afropop, who is taking over speakers with the sounds of home, by posting photographs of him on their Instagram account.

According to GQ, β€œWizkid is the guy Drake and BeyoncΓ© call up whenever they need a continent-spanning smash hit”.

However not many agree with this as many Davido’s stan opposed such coronation in a tweet under GQ’s twitter thread:

The photographs for the magazine were all taken in Accra, Ghana by Prince Gyasi and he was styled by Karen Binns.


We feel the publication is not totally justifiable knowing the likes of Burnaboy and Davido amongst others are still very much on top of the chart.
