Sarkodie Jumps On Wizkid's 'Ojuelegba (Refix)'

Download Ghanaian star rapper Sarkodie's remix of Wizkid's hometown anthem "Ojuelegba."


Wizkid kicked off 2015 by dropping the visuals for his Ayo (Joy) LP standout "Ojuelegba," a song “inspired by his experiences and sojourn in and around this part of Lagos, Nigeria (Ojuelegba).” The hit track now gets a remix from Ghanaian star rapper Sarkodie, who drops a solid verse over the Legendury Beatz-produced synth beat. For more from Wizzy check out his "Dance Go" collaboration with 2face Idibia, as well as his recent singles "Amin" and "Sound It." Sarkodie comes from dropping his "Revenge Of The Spartans" warehouse video earlier this year.
