Wizkid Has New Music With Sean Paul and Alicia Keys

Nigerian Star Boy Wizkid took to Twitter to confirm that he’s been working on new tracks with none other than Sean Paul and Alicia Keys.

Not long after shutting down Barclay’s Center with his headlining slot at the One Africa Music Fest last weekend, Wizkid is making waves again.


The Nigerian singer took to Twitter this week to confirm that he’s been working on new tracks with none other than Sean Paul and Alicia Keys.

Wizkid first tweeted that he’d been making magic with Alicia Keys over the weekend. This comes as no surprise as the singer brought out Keys’ husband Swizz Beatz at One Africa Music Fest.

The couple have posted videos of themselves getting down to “Ojuelegba” on their social media accounts before and Keys recently dropped what sounded like an afrobeats-inspired single.

Responding to a fan’s question about a possible collaboration with Sean Paul, Wizzy also stated that he’d, in fact, just been in the studio with the Jamaican star earlier that day.

The last time we can remember Sean Paul collaborating with a Nigerian act was when he jumped on Timaya’s “Bum Bum” remix. That one was a hit. And this new Wizkid collaboration’s got ??? written all over it.

We’ll be on the look out for both.
