Wizkid, Nigerian Afropop singer, has sparked a plethora of mixed reactions on social media following the release of the visuals for ‘Ghetto Love’, his first single of 2019.
The 29-year-old talented songwriter had taken fans by surprise when he dropped the video of his new song in the early hours of Friday, without prior announcement.
‘Ghetto Love’ also comes several months after Wizkid had hinted that he would be releasing a record-breaking album.
While a segment of music lovers have thronged social media platforms, especially Twitter, to hail the singer for blessing them with his latest offering, others have expressed reservations with respect to the quality of the song and demanded something more appealing.
“Wizkid did this, wizkid did that… Wizkid no longer sings well, wizkid is now trash, we’ll move on if wizkid doesn’t give us a befitting album to redeem his name blah blah.
“STFU and move on, those of us that still like baba like him like that #GhettoLove,” a user wrote.
“#GhettoLove @wizkidayo no released this song for him haters we him fans like the song,” another user wrote.
Here is what some Nigerians had to say:
"Wizkid did this, wizkid did that…
Wizkid no longer sings well, wizkid is now trash, we'll move on if wizkid doesn't give us a befitting album to redeem his name blah blah."

Is wizkid undergoing mid-life crisis? This peak is just too early, he needs to evolve or we move on #GhettoLove

Y’all are just scared to say it but #GhettoLove is mediocre asf with trash lyrics. No energy whatsoever but expect Wizkid fanboys to lie to themselves one more time. could never be me!!
Mans past his best and needs an album to rescue him or we move on

because #GhettoLove lyrics is not about suffering and sleeping in the studio, it doesn't have lyrics. It's people like you that's making that "reason with me" song thrive, because that's the only storyline y'all can relate with.
Y'all are a basic bunch.

Wizkid kind of music, you cannot enjoy it on #200 earpiece, you have to have some class at least.
This song is a hit! #GhettoLove 🔥🔥🔥🔥

Woke up to #GhettoLove trend. Voom, I downloaded, listened and discovered it's puerile nonsense. For such talent, he could have done better than insult our brown skin intelligence. We move!
