‘Wo’, a hit song by rapper Olamide Adedeji, is the most popular song of the year, a fellow artiste Wizkid has said.

The street anthem which was released about two months ago has rapidly soared to the top of numerous singles charts in Nigeria and Africa.

Wizkid, who has also released hugely successful songs like ‘Daddy Yo’ and ‘Come Closer’ in 2017, acknowledged Olamide’s ‘Wo’ as being the best in a Twitter post on Sunday.

Despite still being in October — with the possibility of another song emerging to outshine ‘W0’ — Wizkid tweeted: “NP Wo olamide all day! Biggest naija song 2017!”

Even when a fan told him that ‘Penalty’ by Small Doctor is more successful than ‘Wo’, Wizkid remained unswayed, maintaining that the YBNL record label head honcho is deserving of the commendation.

Wizkid and Olamide, who recently teamed up for ‘Ori Mi’, first collaborated in 2011 on ‘Omo To Shan’.

The singer made history last Friday for being the first Nigerian singer to headline a sold-out concert at the iconic Royal Albert Hall, London, UK.
