Skepta, a British rapper of Nigerian descent, has teamed up with Wizkid, Afrobeat star, for his latest 13-track album titled, ‘Ignorance is Bliss’.
The UK grime rapper, whose real name is Joseph Junior Adenuga, comes through with his new body of work, three years after dropping ‘Konnichiwa’ -a Mercury Prize-winning album.
In his fifth album, Skepta ushers listeners to his opinion on core social conversations like political hypocrisy, fatherhood, relationship dramas and crime.

Wizkid joins the rapper on one of his soundtracks titled ‘Glow in the Dark’.
Prior to the official release of ‘Bliss is Ignorance’, Skepta premiered two music video, ‘Bullet From A Gun’, and ‘Grease Mode’ — both included as soundtracks in his album.
For ‘Bullet From A Gun’, Skepta, who recently had a baby girl, sits next to an empty stroller at North London’s underground station.
The Tottenham-born rapper churns out his fast one-liners while an array of events unfolds around him.
