#SoHip | Wizkid's 'Come Closer' Creates Jamaica vs. Nigeria Controversy

Fact is Wizkid’s ‘Come Closer’ song + video is drawing on average half a million of people every day on Youtube, but not only to show love.

Indeed, although most people fuss about  Drake, who was MIA on the video, some Youtube viewers created an entire controversy surrounding wizkid’s alleged use of Jamaican patois in the song.

So, fans aren’t too fond of the Nigerian artist’s seemingly Jamaican style.

Others argued that the lyrics weren’t in Jamaican patois, but in Nigerian pidgin.

To some, Jamaican patois originated from Africa so it’s all the same.

However, so far, only one word has been proven to be Jamaican patois on wizkid’s track and it’s actually from Drake’s verse when he sings, “What would I do without you, my chargie? ». Chargie is said to mean friend in Jamaican creole.

Therefore, no matter what people think or say, the hype is definitely on for Wizkid and it feels surreal how much exposure he is getting right now. Now that he owns that deal with Sony Music, the sky is probably the ultimate limit for the African kid.
