shares the songs that inspired his summer mixtape

Following collaborations with Drake and millions of streams, WizKid's global potential is about to be realised. Whilst the artist himself is purely focussed on making music, the Afro-Pop he pioneers has already been co-opted by multiple global superstars and is the go-to sound for summer '17. Taking inspiration from hip-hop, contemporary pop, Afrobeat, dancehall and reggaeton, WizKid's summer mixtape Sounds From The Other Side marks a turning point not just for an artist, but for the global pop phenomenon.

Here he shares the songs that inspired the release.
